  • Combine the sugar and cinnamon together in a large sealable plastic bag; add the biscuit dough in batches of 6 to 8 pieces and shake to coat. Alternate layers of the chopped apple and the coated dough pieces in the prepared pan.

  • Melt the margarine in a small saucepan over medium heat; stir the brown sugar into the melted margarine. Bring to a boil; cook at a boil for 1 minute, remove from heat, and pour over the apple and biscuit layers.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until cooked through, about 35 minutes. Allow the bread to cool in the pan for 10 minutes before turning out onto a plate to serve.

This was REALLY good. Would be great for a brunch or Christmas breakfast. My only suggestion would be after about 15 mins in oven you might should cover with aluminum foil to prevent the edges from overcooking. Read More

I must admit I didn't have a bundt pan. I used my cast iron pot and put a steel can in the middle. Then I placed the ingredients around the can as directed. The flavor was really tasty but the bread didn't cook as well as I would have liked. Everybody that ate it were very happy with the taste. I will do it again but with the proper pan. Read More

Perfect! We love this cinnamony apple goodness for a weekend breakfast! The apples are a great addition to monkey bread. I also like to add chopped walnuts or pecans. Since it's just the two of us I halve the recipe and bake in an 8x8 square pan and that works out great! Thank you for the yummy recipe!:) Read More

Yummy! I used 2 apples (Braeburn and Granny Smith), butter because I was out of margarine, but followed the rest of the recipe as written. I don't have a smooth tube pan, so I sprayed my fluted bundt cake pan with butter flavored Pam and it turned out very pretty. This was so incredibly tasty! I did follow two other reviews and laid a sheet of foil over the top after 15 minutes of baking to prevent hardening and I placed a large foil covered cookie sheet underneath to prevent a mess on my oven floor if it bubbled over (which it did just a tad bit). Next time I will use 3 apples and margarine, but I'm sure it will be just as fantastic as it was this morning. Read More

OUTSTANDING! The only change I made to this recipe was that I only used 2 apples. The next time I make this recipe I will only use 1/2 cup of white sugar with 2 TBSP of cinnamon as I had a lot of waste but I really like the cinnamon flavor. This is a Keeper! Read More

this is the basis for any future recipe of monkey bread but i made this to the tee (cept made my own biscuits cuz i didn't have any premade) and it was quite too sweet. i loved the idea of apples but next time i will add a LOT more apples. also please clarify next time NOT to coat apples with the cinamon/sugar mix. because at first i thought you were not supposed to then i wound up with WAY too much of the mixture so i was like "well maybe they wanted you to coat them too..?" so i made two seperate things one with coated apples one with the apples NOT coated. one with them coated was WWAAAAAAYYY too sweet. so future reference to ANYONE: do NOT coat the apples in sugar/cinamon!! otherwise i loved the apples. next time probly will double or triple apple amount and leave everything else alone. also i think it was a complete waSTE to make that much sugar cinamon if you barely even use HALF of it!!?!

We love Monkey Bread - I've made this again and again for years now and it's just superb. My daughter's band and classmates always ask for it! Not to mention the neighbor when they find out I've made it. Never any left overs. If you don't have refrigerator biscuits and dont want to go to the store use baking mix follow the insructions for biscuits and just pull off pieces of the dough - and proceed as usual. You can also use other fruits - and berries although if you do brown sugar doesnt necessarily go with some fruit and berries but white sugar always does - also try adding a bit of vanilla to your liquid when mixing the dough (if using baking mix) or to the melted margarine (we use butter though) another thing I thought I'd mentin is that the cinnamon sugar does seem to be more than needed but in my house it goes into it's own little container and we use the leftovers for toast or oatmeal or even the next monkey bread:) Wonderful recipe and versatile!

This was delicious! A huge hit with the party I brought it to - lots of people asking for the recipe. Be careful not to stack the biscuits too high - the middles ones had a little trouble cooking but it turned out great:) Read More

Yummy easy fun to make with the kiddos. I used 1/2 cup of sugar and a little over 2 tsp of cinnamon. Which was plenty to coat the biscuits. No need to use a whole cup. This was there was no waste. I only had 2 apples on hand and that was fine. I also took a tip from other reviewers and covered it with foil while baking. We made these Christmas morning! And my house smells wonderful. Thanks for a great recipe. Read More
