I gave this recipe to my daughter who has 6 children. They love this, and it is so simple they can make it themselves which they love to do. If desired, a thin mixture of powder sugar frosting can be poured over warm biscuits.

  • Quarter the biscuits with kitchen shears. Dip shears in water after each cut to keep the biscuits from getting too sticky. Dip biscuits into sugar mixture, and place in a greased tube pan. Do this until all biscuits are used.

  • Melt butter or margarine, and mix in 3/4 cup sugar. Pour mixture over biscuits.

  • Bake in a preheated 350 degree F (175 degrees C) oven for 30 to 35 minutes.

After years of perfecting, with a little help from a friend, this is what makes a dessert that my guys say is "Like Crack!" 2 Cans of BUTTERMILK Grands biscuits, 1 3/4 cup sugar, 3 tbs cinnamon, 1 full cup of butter, 1/4 cup brown sugar. Mix one cup of sugar & the cinnamon - dip cut up biscuit sections in this and arrange in a heavily greased bundt pan. Pour remaining cin sugar mix on top. Melt the butter and add the last 3/4 cup sugar and 1/4 cup brown sugar - bring to a light boil. Pour over biscuit pieces. Bake at 350 for 45-50 minutes. **I always layer in a can of Apple Pie filling with the biscuits before baking, as well** Read More

I enjoyed this but didn't love it. The bread was a little to crispy must have cooked it too long. Read More

I'd never made/had monkey bread before, but as my first attempt, this recipe was extrememly easy to follow and make. I had fun cutting up the biscuits and rolling them in the cinnasugar and watching it take shape as it rose in the bundt. And the final results...delicious! Each piece of the bread is coated with cinnamon and sugar and gooey icing that you can just pull apart and eat for desert or for a breakfast treat. Everyone love, love, loved this. The only change I made to the recipe is a sprinkled the bottom of my bundt pan with pecans before I began layering. Read More

Excellent! I used brown sugar instead of white and turned out great. If you want bread to stick together tight I would recommend more sauce. Read More

Everyone thought I had made the bread from scratch. I did buy a good brand of biscuits and I chose to use unsalted butter instead of margarine. Very good and very simple to make. Read More
