Monkey Bread

Monkey bread is one of those things I can remember having as a once in a while treat while I was growing up.  I had never made it myself since they make it so easy for you in the freezer section!  However, when the hubs brought home 4 cans of biscuits he found on sale, I had to figure out what to do with them.  And really, what better treat than monkey bread?

This recipe is so simple to do, and I did the majority of it the night before to make it easy for me in the morning, when I am not at my best!  It was delicious, I’ll definitely be making this again!

Monkey Bread
Adapted from

4 cans biscuits (use the cheap kind!)
1/4 cup sugar
1 tsp cinnamon
1 stick butter
1/2 cup sugar
1 tsp cinnamon
dash nutmeg


Spray a bundt pan with nonstick cooking spray.  Mix 1/4 cup sugar and 1 tsp cinnamon until well blended.  Roll each biscuit into a ball and then roll in the sugar/cinnamon mixture, making sure it’s well coated.  Place each ball in the pan, lightly touching each other.  When done, cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate overnight.  If you’re not refrigerating overnight, continue with the recipe…

Preheat oven to 350.  In a small saucepan, melt the butter over medium heat and add the remaining cinnamon and sugar, and the nutmeg.  Bring to a boil for 2 minutes, stirring constantly.  Pour over the biscuits and place in the oven.  Cook 30 minutes.  Allow to cool a little while before inverting onto a plate.  Serve warm.
