Monkey Bread Recipe

Both of my boys really enjoyed helping me make Monkey Bread when they were young. It seemed to taste twice as good when they helped fix it. It's one of our favorites for breakfast or as a snack. —Carol Allen, McLeansboro, Illinois
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 15 min. Bake: 30 min. + cooling YIELD:10-12 servings

  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 3 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped pecans, optional
  • 1/2 cup butter, melted
  • 3 tubes (10 ounces each) refrigerated biscuits

"This monkey bread is fabulous and easy to make. I used a 10 inch bundt pan and it turned out great! When I make it again I won't wait the 30 minutes to flip. Most of the yummy stuff was left in the pan."
