Monkey Bread

Have you heard of monkey bread?  I found out after making it that not many people have.  I found this a little upsetting because monkey bread is amazing.  All it consists of is cut up biscuit dough coated in cinnamon sugar and topped with melted brown sugar and butter.  As soon as it came out of the oven, I have to admit that I couldn’t stop eating it.  Luckily it was the Saturday of Memorial Day when I made it, so I was able to bring it over to a friends b-b-q on Sunday.  I made the monkey bread in a 10 inch springform pan which worked well.  I could have also made it in a bundt pan, however I liked the springform because I didn’t have to flip the monkey bread out of the pan.  I just released the sides of the springform and left the monkey bread on the bottom part of the pan.

I accidentally left the monkey bread in the oven for a few minutes too long and ended up burning a few pieces on top.  However, I simply picked those pieces off and it was great!

Recipes – Monkey Bread


3 (12 or 16-ounce) packages of biscuit dough

1 cup sugar

2 teaspoons cinnamon- I used about 3 tsp since I love cinnamon

1 stick butter

1 cup packed brown sugar


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.  Grease a 9 or 10 inch bundt or springform pan.
  2. Combine the sugar and cinnamon in a plastic bag. Cut the biscuits into quarters or smaller if you prefer.  Shake a few pieces of biscuits at a time in the cinnamon sugar mixture.
  3. Arrange the pieces in the bottom of the prepared pan.  Continue until all biscuits are boated and placed in the pan.
  4. In a small saucepan, melt the butter and brown sugar together.  Bring to a boil for 1 minute.  Pour over the biscuits in the pan.
  5. Bake for 35 minutes. – dont go over or else it will burn!
