Monkey Bread

This recipe begins with refrigerated biscuits, so you are not making the dough from scratch. While there are many steps involved in making this bread, it’s actually a recipe that even young children can help with.

The bread is very sweet. You can substitute Splenda for some or even all of the sugar. The nuts are optional.


2 cans (7.5 oz each) refrigerated biscuits
¾ cup sugar
2 teaspoons cinnamon
¾ cut butter or margarine
½ cup chopped walnuts
additional sugar


1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees
2. Cut each biscuit into quarters
3. In a large disposable bag, combine ¾ cup sugar and one teaspoon of the cinnamon.
4. Drop in biscuit pieces a few at a time, shake and coat.
5. Layer pieces without crowding in a greased 9x5x3 inch loaf pan.
6. In a small sauce pan combine butter or margarine and one teaspoon of the cinnamon.
7. Measure your dry ingredients and add enough sugar so that you have one cup total.
8. Add dry ingredients to sauce pan and boil, stirring constantly.
9. Remove from heat and let cool 15 minutes.
10. Stir in nuts and then spoon mixture over biscuits in pan.
11. Bake 45 minutes.
12. Let cool in pan 5 minutes.
13. Remove from pan.
14. Pull off portions as desired.

I LOVE Monkey Bread! I appreciate the step by step, too, in your post as the recipe I was given basically says to just throw it all together (it never quite turned out right). I'll have to give your recipe a go sometime!

Thanks for swinging by my blog. It's always nice to have visitors! Come back anytime! Nice to meet you, too!
