Reviews for Cinnamon Monkey Bread
"I am so excited to serve this tonight. I love Monkey Bread, but I've never made it before, so I was so nervous that it would all stick to my pan and be a big disaster. I bought 1 lb. containers and used two of them...hoping it was enough. It came out just beautifully. 2 lb. is the perfect amount. Thank you so much."
"I cut the recipe in half and baked it in a loaf pan and it still turned out great! I wouldn't put the remaining cinnamon sugar over top when I make it again though. It was a bit too sweet for my liking, but still a big hit in our house!"
"I didn't read ahead about how many tubes of biscuits I would need, so I had to modify this accordingly! I made a quarter of the original recipe and in place of the fluted tube pan, I used a doughnut pan...which resulted in 11 monkey bread doughnuts for the one tube of biscuits I had. My kids loved it - and I loved the individual portions!"
"I also used homemade buttermilk biscuits in this recipe. The monkey bread turned out perfectly, pulled apart beautifully, and the butter and brown sugar created a great caramel crust on the soft cinnamon sugar bread."
"Delicious, can't wait to make with my grandchildren next time they are here!"
"Delicious! I like to microwave a container of cream cheese frosting to drizzle over the rolls when they come out of the oven."
"I was searching for a monkey bread recipe that didn't use a packaged pudding mix and I found this. The cinnamon and sugar mixture along with the butter and brown sugar give it a great flavor. I used a homemade buttermilk bread recipe instead of the refrigerated buttermilk biscuits."
"Delicious and simple!"
"This recipe was so easy! What made it even better is the melted butter and brown sugar that you pour over the whole bread before baking. I have made other Monkey Bread recipes, but this was the best! My family agrees!!"
"Taste AMAZING and is soooo EASY to make!"
"This is a wonderful recipe. My husband and son like the cinnamon roll-type texture. I have also made this recipe without the addition of brown sugar & butter glaze - and it is wonderful that way as well. Makes the bread taste less like cinnamon rolls and more like cinnamon-sugar doughnuts! Yum. I will definitely be making this recipe again :)"
"This is a great recipe to cook with kids. My 9 and 5 year old son and daughter had a great time. I quartered the biscuits, one child rolled dough balls while the other rolled them in the cinnamon sugar mixture, and the finished product is really good. Great with cocoa or a cup of coffee."
"Our three kids have made this recipe every Christmas Eve for years and it's always a big hit at the family Christmas Eve party. It goes quickly!"
"Easy and delicious. We make it all the time when we have guests. My nephew asks for it every time he visits. Sometimes we sprinkle chopped pecans on each layer of dough balls."
"LOVED IT! Even made it for the first day of school breakfast because it is such a favorite!"
"Simple and delicious! Great recipe to involve the kids!"
"very tasty. just like it tasted when i was little."
"Simple, but good!"
"I made this just as a simple easy surprise for dessert one night. Definitely would make it again, maybe with some walnuts or some kind of nuts to offset the sweet."
"We made this all growing up, but this time, I used crescent rolls instead of biscuits, kind of by accident. I tore up the pieces and rolled them into balls. We will do that always now. They were so light and airy! YUM!"
"I made this for breakfast on summer vacation for my son and his friends - they still talk about it and have requested it regularly. Very easy to do, and I like the suggestion of adding nutmeg."
"I've made it twice now. My husband and I love it! This time, I sprinkled sliced almonds around it."
"I cut this recipe in half to see if I would like it. I did make a few adjustments: added a sprinkle of nutmeg to the cinnamon/sugar mix and added a layer of chopped pecans in the center. I baked it in a 9x5 loaf pan for about 22 min. turned out great!"
