Manic Monday Recipe~ Monkey Bread

This is absolutely one of my family's favorite treats.  My mother-in-law makes it every holiday that we spend together, and we can't get enough of it.  Goofy me forgot to take a picture of the final product, but let's just say it would've made you want to eat the picture!  I will share it next time I make it.

4 12 oz refrigerated biscuit dough
1 C. White Sugar
1 Tbsp. Ground Cinnamon
1 C. Brown Sugar
1/2 C. Butter (1 stick)
1/2 C. Walnuts (optional)  I omit!
9/10 in. Bundt Pan

In a plastic baggie, add the cinnamon and white sugar.  Next, rip each biscuit in thirds or fourths and add to the sugar/cinnamon mixture.  They don't have to be perfect balls. 

 Next, mix the biscuits around so that they are covered in the mixture.  
 Once all of the biscuits are covered, place them in a greased 9 or 10 inch bundt pan.

Next, in a small sauce pan, melt the butter and brown sugar together on medium heat.  It should take between 1-2 minutes.
Once your butter and sugar are melted together, pour the mixture over the top of the biscuits.
Bake at 350 degrees for 35-40 minutes.
Once baked, let cool in pan for about 10 minutes.  Then carefully turn over onto a plate. 
Then let the family just pull it apart and gobble it down!

I would love to hear how yours turns out!

  1. I will be right over to have some. I just love this bread and I don't make it enough because I know I will sit and pick at it all morning with my big cup of creamy coffee.

  2. I love this recipe...thanks for sharing. Can't wait to make some!

  3. Is that 4 (12-oz.) packages of biscuit dough or am I reading it wrong? It's been too long since I've made this, and I think I should make it again!

  4. Nope, you aren't reading that wrong. It seems like a lot, and most recipes call for just 3. You can use just three, but I am usually making it for a good amount of people. And even with using four, there's enough of the sugar mixtures to cover it all.

  5. Super yum! This looks wonderful! I wish I had a giant slice of it right now =o)

  6. yummmm...can't wait to try this recipe! My mom used to make this for us :)

  7. I've never heard of this but HAVE to try it! thanks for sharing!

  10. Yum!! I've heard of this recipe many times, but the funny thing is that I've never made it! Gotta try it soon!

  11. This is probably one my favorite desserts! I had no idea people still made it.... YUMMY!!!! Thanks for reminding all of us about it. Cheers! xoxo

  12. Are you making this for me? I would love to try it! Bring it on over! I would omit the nuts to, not crazy about them. Come and share this with WorkShop Wednesday. It would make a great addition to the party!

  13. Increddible! I just made it for the first time and my husband and I love it!

  14. This is the way I have made mine for so long! Now, I also cut the rolls in 6 pieces if I am using jumbo bisquits of in 4 for the regular size and put 5-6 pieces in muffin tin sprayed with canola oil and bake!! They freeze beautifully!!

  15. I made this and it is in the oven now. Smells heavenly!!!Can't wait to taste it. I am going to make a confectionary sugar glaze to pour over it when it is done. Thanks! Donna Bell
