This is the perfect monkey bread recipe. My family loved it. I made a butter, powdered sugar and milk glaze to drizzle over. It is sweet but it is supposed to be sweet. I will make again and again.

I wanted to try this, but I had only one tube of rolls. I made this with one tube and baked it in a loaf pan. I did not use the brown sugar topping, though. The bread was good, but next time I will try a very light topping of the brown sugar and cinnamon. This is a good recipe.

4 stars from me 2-3 stars from my family. Too sweet...next time I'll use less of the cinnamon sugar

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! 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.
