Monkey Bread

Mmmmm I love Monkey Bread! It’s sweet, gooey, easy to make, and it’s delicious! I usually make this on Christmas and Easter morning. Something about it makes me think of Jesus. =)

This recipe always turns out well for me….except for that one time I tried to make a double batch on Christmas morning. The center was dough and the outside burned. Then the butter ran over in the oven and pretty much caught on fire. Smoke alarms on Christmas morning=uh oh!

1 can of biscuits (or if you’re feeling really ambitious, you can make your own!)
1 cup of sugar
3 tablespoons cinnamon
1 stick of butter
1 cup packed brown sugar

1. Quarter biscuits bit size pieces
2. Place sugar and cinnamon into a zip-lock bag. Mix well.
3. Place 3-4 pieces of dough in the bag and shake
4. Arrange pieces of dough in a greased bundt pan or baking dish (bundt pan works the best)
5. Melt butter and brown sugar together
6. Pour butter and brown sugar over biscuit pieces
7. Bake for 35 minutes at 375 degrees
8. Let cool for 5 minutes, then flip upside-down onto a plate to serve
9. Enjoy!

 Quartering the biscuits
 Coating in cinnamon/sugar mix
 Arranging pieces in my baking dish. Apparently I don’t own a bundt pan. Or salad tongs, though that’s unrelated to this recipe. Ha!
 This was fresh out of the oven. You kind of have to watch the baking time closely. There’s a perfect time to take it out when the center isn’t doughy anymore and the outside isn’t too brown yet. 35 minutes was perfect for me, but depending on your oven, it could vary, so keep an eye on it!
 Flipped upside-down on a plate. All the yummy sauce drizzles all over. Mmmm!
Eat! =)

  1. Sweet! Thank you, thank you, thank you for posting this! I guess you were planning on posting the recipe anyway (seeing as you took photos of the process and all…) 🙂 I can't wait to make it sometime!


  2. YUM! I made this yesterday morning and it was scrumptious! Btw, I used bisquick mix for the biscuits and it worked just fine! They were a little drier than refrigerated ones, so I drizzled a little butter over them before coating with the cinnamon mixture so it would stick better. Thanks for sharing the recipe! P.S. I'll keep my eye out at garage sales fora bundt pan for you. That's where I got mine (for 50 cents!) 🙂
