Maple Bacon Monkey Bread. Think about that for just a moment. Say those four words over a couple of times in your head… Yum, right? I’ve always said, “Everything is better with bacon!”, and then add maple and monkey bread in the mix and you’ve got a heavenly combination.
I love sweet and salty together and savory desserts are one of my favorite things for breakfast. Okay, for any time. The flavor combination is amazing and it’s also a great recipe to let the kids help make.
This twist on traditional monkey bread will blow your mind!
Maple Bacon Monkey Bread
- 8 slices of bacon, cooked and cut/crumbled
- 2 cans of cinnamon rolls, plus icing
- 1⁄2 cup sugar
- 2 teaspoons cinnamon
- 1⁄2 cup light brown sugar
- 5 tablespoons maple syrup
- 1⁄2 cup butter, melted
- Preheat oven to 350*.
- Spray a bundt pan with cooking spray and coat with flour.
- Mix bacon, sugar, and cinnamon in a large bowl. Pour into a large zipper bag for later.
- Cut cinnamon rolls into 4 pieces and roll each piece into a ball.
- Combine butter, brown sugar, and maple syrup in a small bowl.
- Place the balls into the butter mixture then dip back in the bag with dry ingredients to coat.
- Arrange evenly in the bundt pan.
- Bake on 350* for about 30 minutes. Allow to cool for about 10 minutes.
