Cooktop Cove: Watch how to make slow cooker monkey bread
By Rhona Reid
A brilliantly fun breakfast for kids after a sleepover, or served as part of a brunch; a plate of warm, glistening monkey bread is nothing short of delicious.  This recipe is a total breeze to put together, and it's a great one to get those sleepover kids helping with before they go and cover a floor of your home with sleeping bags, blobs of toothpaste and mismatched pajamas.
You can tinker with the ingredients if you want; using a raisin dough, or adding a handful of dried fruit between the layers of biscuit dough; and a drizzle of maple syrup or honey over the top before you set it cooking.   You can use a baking parchment liner in your cooker if you want to, although it's not essential.  
Slow cooker monkey bread
6
10 minutes
2 hours
2 hours 15 minutes
1 can ready-made biscuits
1 cup light brown sugar
1 tablespoon cinnamon
2 tablespoons butter
Using your fingers, grease the bottom and sides of a 6-quart slow cooker with butter.
In a large bowl, mix sugar and cinnamon together.
Cut each biscuit into quarters. Toss them with sugar mixture, making sure that each biscuit is thoroughly coated.
Place biscuits into greased slow cooker. Cover the top with a few paper towels. Put on lid and cook for 2 hours on high.
Remove paper towels and lid. Allow to cool down for 3 minutes before serving.
As a guide to quantity, do a quick headcount of how many people you're catering for when it comes to demolishing these sugar-glazed wonders; double it and then add a few more to be on the safe side.  Experience tells us that when faced with something this good, everyone can manage 'just another one.' 
Note: All slow cookers are a little bit different in temperature and calibration. This recipe was tested in Cooktop Cove's Test Kitchen using this slow cooker, which is available for purchase here.
