Both of my boys really enjoyed helping me make this butterscotch 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


  • 1 package (3-1/2 ounces) cook-and-serve butterscotch pudding mix
  • 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


  1. Preheat oven to 350°. Combine pudding mix, sugar, cinnamon and, if desired, pecans. Pour butter into a shallow bowl; quarter biscuits. Dip several pieces into butter; place in pudding mixture and toss to coat.
  2. Arrange in a greased 10-in. fluted tube pan. Repeat until all biscuit pieces are coated. Bake until browned, 30-35 minutes. Cool 5-10 minutes before inverting onto a serving plate.
