I have made this twice for Christmas and we just love it. I fet that it just was not enough of the sause mixture in the middle of the bread the first time. I made an extra mixture and drizzled it as I layered it with Biscuits Bananas then sause. Perfect not dry in the middle and then poured the rest over the top. Be sure to have a pan under as you bake it.It will spill over while cooking.

Excellent! Per the last review I reduced the white sugar to 1/4 c. the butter to 1/4c plus 1 T and the brown sugar to 1/4c plus 1 T. Due to the sweetness of the bananas this is all you need. I also used one large can of reduced fat wheat grands biscuits and sliced almonds in place of the pecans. My husband two-year son and I loved it ate the whole pan.

I made this today...very good...I made one with chopped apples and one with bananas. Both were excellent...you just need to place loaf pan on baking sheet to catch drips cover the top with foil during the last 10 minutes of baking.

Followed the recipe exactly for a large family breakfast and this turned out wonderful. The sweetness of the traditional monkey bread is cut by the bananas and less sugar. Use a bundt pan to cook it more evenly inside and out instead of a loaf pan. This also spreads the sauce more evenly and melts the sugar. The easy biscuit shortcut makes this a great brunch item or breakfast for a crowd on short notice. Fantastic!

Delicious! I couldn't figure out what type of biscuits came in 7.5 ounce cans so I just got the 9.5 ounce "butter me nots" store brand. Worked out just fine. Used a pizza cutter to cut the biscuits as suggested by another review definitely recommend doing that. As for the taste well my husband and I (along with my 3-year old son) finished almost the entire thing right away!! Definitely decadent one I'll make again.

My family loved this---even tho I forgot to add the vanilla! I think it could be lightened up by cutting the sugar and butter back a little and have it taste just as good. I used the honey butter biscuits by Pillsbury that I had on hand. Overall an excellent recipe. Thanks!
