Monkey Bread

It’s been a while since I posted on Monkey Bread (March of 09 to be exact), but I make it several times a month. With only 5 ingredients, even the simplest of bakers can create it. There are quite a few variations on how to prepare the bread, but I think the end result is almost always the same.

If you are looking for a melt in your mouth/sink to your buns recipe, try this OMG Cinnamon Roll Cake too.

Monkey Bread


  • 2 rolls (8 count each) refrigerated biscuits
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, melted
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar, packed


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Spray the inside of a 12″ fluted or tube pan with cooking spray.

Remove biscuits and separate. Slice each into quarters. Combine sugar and cinnamon in bowl or large Ziploc bag. Roll biscuits in cinnamon sugar and arrange in baking pan. (If using a bag, drop several biscuits at a time in the bag and shake to cover.)

Combine melted butter and brown sugar, stir until smooth. Pour evenly over biscuits.

Bake for 28 – 32 minutes, or until the center is no longer doughy. I often lightly cover the pan with foil during the last 10 or 15 minutes to prevent the top from over browning. Another way I check for “doneness” is to tap on the top of the bread with my finger. If it is soft and does not spring back, it needs a few more minutes.
