Monkey Bread

I wanted to make a yummy treat for the girls as an afterschool snack.  If you are a couponer like I am, you likely have a lot of (free!) cans of biscuits in your fridge.  I timed it just right so that they came out of the oven about 10 minutes before the girls got off the bus.  The house smelled incredible when we walked in from the bus stop.

Monkey Bread


1/2 cup granulated sugar

1 teaspoon cinnamon

2 cans (16.3 oz each) refrigerated buttermilk biscuits or 4 mini cans of biscuits

1 cup diced apple, if desired (i made mine with apples but no nuts or raisins)

1/2 cup chopped walnuts, if desired

1/2 cup raisins, if desired

1 cup firmly packed brown sugar

3/4 cup butter or margarine, melted


  • Heat oven to 350°F. Lightly grease 12-cup fluted tube pan with shortening or cooking spray. In large -storage plastic food bag, mix granulated sugar and cinnamon.
  • Separate dough into 16 biscuits; cut each into quarters. Shake in bag to coat. Arrange in pan, adding apples or walnuts and raisins among the biscuit pieces if desired.
  • In small bowl, mix brown sugar and melted butter; pour over biscuit pieces.
  • Bake 28 to 32 minutes or until golden brown and no longer doughy in center. Cool in pan 10 minutes. Turn upside down onto serving plate; pull apart to serve. Serve warm.


Within 10 minutes of them being home they had already but a big dent in it.  They begged for a bit more after dinner.
