Time For A Treat – Crazy Good Monkey Bread


My little girl turned eight this Sunday, and her favorite food ever is Monkey Bread!  Well, I thought I had a pretty good recipe for Monkey Bread, but when I tried out my friend Paige’s Monkey Bread I realized she had me beat (and my family agreed!)


If you’re planning to pick up loads of cheap biscuits at Publix this week, this would be a great recipe to try out over the weekend 🙂


Crazy Good Monkey Bread


  1. 3 cans biscuits
  2. 1 ½ c. brown sugar
  3. 1 ½ sticks butter or margarine
  4. 1 T cinnamon
  5. 1/2 cup white sugar mixed with 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
  6. Pam Cooking Spray


  1. Cut biscuits into quarters and coat with cinnamon sugar mixture (at our house we put the biscuits in plastic bags and my kids shake until their heart’s content!)
  2. Melt butter; mix with brown sugar & cinnamon.
  3. Put half of biscuits into a greased bundt pan & pour half of brown sugar mixture over it.
  4. Put remaining biscuits in bundt pan & then remaining brown sugar in bundt pan.
  5. Bake at 350 degrees for 35-40 minutes.  Top with powdered sugar glaze.


  1.  3 T butter, melted
  2. 2/3 c. confectioners’ sugar $0.35/1 Imperial Sugar Product
  3. 1 t water

Mix together ingredients for glaze.  Pour glaze over Monkey Bread when removed from bundt pan & still warm.  YUMMMMMM!

  1. That is how I make mine too!! Got the recipe from my Grandmother- it is SO good.

  2. This looks soooo good!! Going to try it out this weekend :))

  3. mmmm I LOVE monkey bread!! Yours looks delicious!

  4. This is the exact same recipe that I use, except I sprinkle chopped pecans in my pan and sprinkle them between the two layers when doing it in the bundt pan. This is our Christmas morning must have!! YUM! YUM!

  5. Sound yummy! What’s the measurement for the white sugar?


  6. I make monkey bread out of the Pillsbury cinnamon rolls instead of the biscuits. A lot faster. I do make my own sugar glaze but I’m sure you could use the glaze that comes with the cinnamon biscuits.

  7. I wish I had all of the ingredients! 🙂
