  • Shake the sugar and cinnamon together in a large plastic bag; add the biscuit dough, bananas, and pecans to the bag and shake to coat evenly. Pour the mixture into the prepared loaf pan.

  • Melt the butter in a saucepan over medium heat. Stir the brown sugar into the melted butter until completely dissolved. Add the vanilla and stir well. Pour the mixture over the biscuit dough.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until golden brown, 30 to 40 minutes. Allow to cool about 10 minutes before serving.

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. Read More

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. Read More

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. Read More

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! Read More

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. Read More
