Monkey Bread Recipe



The Dish your family will eat before Dinner is served. This dessert is one of my family’s favorite. It certainly isn’t healthy for you, and everyone will pick at it until its 100% vanished, which isn’t long.


Never worry about having it looks pretty in a Brunt pan, I’ve made it several times in just a 9×13 pan, and if you decide to bake it in a normal pan just be warned it’s ready about 5 minutes sooner than if you had it a brunt pan, reason is, that in a larger pan its not as many layers, so it doesn’t take as long as bake all the way through.



Cinnamon Monkey Bread

  • 1 package of bread dough or you can purchase 2 cans of Pillsbury Grand Flake biscuit containers and cut each raw biscuit into quarters.
  • 1 cup of white sugar
  • 4 tbs of cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup of brown sugar
  • 1/2 Cup of Butter

Cinnamon Bun Icing if you want extra sweetness 

  • 2 TBSP melted butter
  • 1 cup of powdered sugar
  • 3 TBSP  of milk


Preheat oven to 350


In a small bowl mix sugar and cinnamon.  Melt 1/2 cup of butter.

Pull apart bread dough pieces and roll into balls, about 1.25 inches in diameter.( You will need 40-45 balls) or you can simply quarter the Pillsbury biscuit dough into 4pieces.

Dip each ball into the butter then dip in the cinnamon mix. Place each one in your bundt pan. ( or you can use a 9×13 pan as well and just layer it)

Melt 1/2 cup of butter and whisk in brown sugar. Pour over the top.


Bake in the oven for 30-40 minutes or until the top is golden brown.



If you decide to make Cinnamon Bun icing to pour on top ( Optional) 
Meanwhile in a large bowl mix together 1 cup of powdered sugar and 3 tbs of milk and set aside.  When your monkey bread is done tip it over on a plate and coat with the icing mix.  Serve warm.
