Monkey Bread

This is an easy breakfast recipe. I have never made this one and this is a keeper! Takes no time at all and is so good! As you can see as soon as I took it out of the pan the kids dove into it!

  • 3 (12 ounce) packages refrigerated biscuit dough
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup margarine
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts (optional) **I did not use**
  • 1/2 cup raisins**I will do 1/2 and 1/2 next time**
      1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease one 9 or 10 inch tube pan.
        1. Mix white sugar and cinnamon in a plastic bag. Cut biscuits into quarters. Shake 6 to 8 biscuit pieces in the sugar cinnamon mix. Arrange pieces in the bottom of the prepared pan. Continue until all biscuits are coated and placed in pan. If using nuts and raisins, arrange them in and among the biscuit pieces as you go along.
      1. In a small saucepan, melt the margarine with the brown sugar over medium heat. Boil for 1 minute. Pour over the biscuits.
      1. Bake at 350 degrees F for 35 minutes. Let bread cool in pan for 10 minutes, then turn out onto a plate. Do not cut! The bread just pulls apart. Enjoy~


  1. My parents make this every year at Christmas... they had maraschino (sp?) cherries to the bottom of the bundt pan so when you flip it out, they are on top!
