Cinnamon Monkey Bread Recipe

Is it possible for four kids to cook together without total chaos in the kitchen? Yes, with the right recipe. This is a favorite with my bunch. They get to "play" with the dough as they roll pieces of refrigerated biscuits into balls.—Lisa Combs, Greenville, Ohio

MY REVIEW

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.

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!!

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 :)
