What is monkey bread?

Monkey bread is a sweet bread served as a treat in the USA and Great Britain made with refrigerated biscuit dough, melted butter, and sugar, plus additional flavors like spices, nuts and oranges. It’s usually served as a breakfast, brunch or snack.


* 4 – 12oz cans of refrigerated biscuit dough
* 1 cup sugar
* 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
* ½ cup (1 stick) butter
* ½ cup chopped walnuts
* 1/2 cup raisins (optional)


1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
2. Use butter to grease the bottom of a bundt pan.
3. Combine sugar, cinnamon and walnuts in a large bowl.
4. Cut biscuit dough into small pieces and toss the pieces into the bowl with the cinnamon and sugar mixture.
5. Place mixture into the greased bundt pan.
6. In a small saucepan melt the butter and pour it over the biscuit mixture.
7. Bake for 45 minutes, or until the top is golden brown.
8. Let cool for 5 minutes and then turn upside down onto a plate.

The result is warm, gooey, sweet monkey bread with crisp edges. The flavors of cinnamon and walnut come through in every bite, with slightly toasted nutty pieces. With a creamy buttery center, this monkey bread will be a hit with the whole family.

If you want to switch it up, you can add raisins or substitute walnuts with almonds or pecans. You can also ditch the cinnamon and add orange zest or top with a powdered sugar glaze. Get creative with your monkey bread and make one-of-a-kind creations every time!
