  • Toss the sugar and orange zest together in a small bowl. Whisk the orange juice and melted butter together in a separate small bowl.

  • Roll the biscuit dough pieces into balls. Dip each ball into the orange juice mixture and then roll in the sugar mixture. Arrange the coated balls evenly in the prepared pan. Pour the remaining orange juice mixture over the biscuits.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until golden brown, about 30 minutes. Allow to cool in the pan for a few minutes before turning out onto a serving platter. Serve warm.

Tip

Aluminum foil can be used to keep food moist, cook it evenly, and make clean-up easier.

I prefer a more traditional recipe. Didn't go over very well at our small group.

This was DELICIOUS:) I cut back on the sugar to 1 cup still sweet..next time ill try less.. the method of dipping the biscuit balls in the orange & then sugar mix I didnt liek much cuz the orange zest wouldnt stay stuck to the balls..so next time I will sprinkle some sugar w the zest on the bottom of the pan adn after arranging the biscuit balls ill add some orange zest to it...What I really loved was the consistency of the orange & butter mix whn it was baked...kinda like a heavy syrup type or glaze...only bad thing was teh 3 rolls got stuck to my pan...so next time i need to spray more butter....but overall it was a good bread!!! Thank you for this wonderful recipe!

This is AMAZING!!! We made it and had no leftovers for breakfast on Thanksgiving and it has been requested for Christmas! I did have to extend the cooking time but it was no big deal.

Delicious! I was suprised this version still turned out 'gooey' since there was no brown sugar. I made it with ingredients on hand (lemon rind instead of orange) and decreased the sugar to 1 Cup as suggested. Very tasty! Thank you!!!

This variation of Monkey Bread is absolutely delicious! I wouldn't change a thing. When I flipped it out of the pan it has a wonderful orange butter sauce that glazes it nicely. This is a keeper for sure!

Excellent recipe. I don't like to grate orange peel so buy it in the store in the spice section. So much easier to use. For those of you who love the sticky sweetness of the original you will be surprised how fresh this one tastes as well as being sweet.

It was very easy and good! I used whole wheat buttermilk biscuits in a can (for a slightly healthier version). I also used margarine instead of butter and the reduced sugar orang juice. I did use regular sugar for the dipping though but next time I might use Splenda instead. Overall WONDERFUL! It tastes like orange blossoms!

They're good. I like the fresh taste that they have. I put aluminum foil under the pan to catch the drips & I put a place on top half way so they weren't to crisp.
