Peanut Butter Caramel Bacon Monkey Bread aka Elvis Monkey Bread – this bread was made for all you peanut butter and bacon lovers out there. Made like a traditional monkey bread with brown sugar, cinnamon and butter with crumbled bacon and peanut butter.
My family loves, loves, loves Monkey Bread. It is a school time staple in our home when we have eggs. It is actually how I get my kids to eat their eggs. You see my kids will eat my husbands eggs but when I make them, they are the grossest thing they have ever had, like ever! So to get them to power through I bribe them with Monkey Bread and it works every single time!
When I was trying to come up with some recipes for Bacon Month, I thought oh I need to do a twist on that with bacon.Then when I was making the sauce with brown sugar, maple syrup and butter, I decided to throw in some peanut butter making the most delicious monkey bread sauce ever.
I can’t wait for you to try this twist, that I know all Elvis fans would know how much he would have loved this. Time to get this “hunk of burning love” in the oven. Enjoy!
- 2 cans (13 oz each) refrigerated biscuits
- 10 strips bacon, cooked & crumbled
- 1/2 cup maple syrup
- 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
- 6 tablespoons butter, melted
- 1/4 cup creamy peanut butter
- 3/4 cup packed brown sugar
- 3/4 cup granulated sugar
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Spray the inside of a 9-inch Bundt pan with cooking oil.
Melt butter in a small saucepan over medium heat; add and stir in brown sugar and maple syrup. Bring mixture to a low boil; let it boil for 1 minute. Then immediately remove from heat and stir in peanut butter, return to low heat until completely combined, remove from heat and set aside..
In a large Ziploc bag add white sugar and cinnamon and mix together.
Add biscuit doing in about 8-10 pieces at a time and shake until all the biscuits pieces are heavily coated with sugar and cinnamon.
Add any remaining sugar-cinnamon mixture into brown sugar mixture. Place back over heat and cook 2 to 3 minutes.
Assemble Monkey Bread:
Sprinkle 1/4 the bacon pieces in the bottom of the tube pan; pour in about 1/3 cups of the brown sugar mixture. Add a layer of biscuit pieces in the tube pan; sprinkle in 1/4 the bacon pieces. Drizzle about 1/3 cups of the brown sugar mixture over the biscuit pieces. Continue to layer the bacon, biscuits and brown sugar until all the ingredients are used; ending with a drizzle of brown sugar mixture.
Bake in the preheated oven until biscuits are cooked through, about 30-35 minutes.
Remove from oven and cool pan for 10-20 minutes.
Then invert pan onto serving plate or cake stand.
Serve and enjoy!
