Monkey Bread? ~ Recipe

Easy Monkey Bread

I saw this recipe recently and forgot to write down where I borrowed it from. So sorry to whoever posted it. Let me know and I’ll give you credit. I don’t even know what it’s called but it really is similar to Monkey Bread so that’s what I’ll call it. Here’s the easy “how to” better known as a recipe.


2 tubes (12 oz. ea.) refrigerated flaky buttermilk biscuits
1 Cup Brown Sugar
1/2 Cup Heavy Whipping Cream
1 tsp. good cinnamon (this is different from that bad cinnamon)

Preheat Oven to 350 degrees. Cut each biscuits into 4 pieces, arrange evenly in a 10″ fluted pan coated with cooking spray. (I used the new Pam baking spray with flour) Combine sugar, cream, and cinnamon, the good cinnamon not the bad cinnamon 🙂 Pour over the biscuits then bake for 25-30 minutes.  Note: I added chopped walnuts because I love nuts. I also layered one tube then added nuts and some of the blended goo then layered the second tube of biscuits added more nuts and poured the rest of the goo on top.


Assemble and put into the oven then enjoy the heavenly smells wafting through the house.

The result will look like this. You can gently flip it over onto a serving platter of some kind.

Enjoy! This is great for a Saturday Morning instead of a donut!

Photobucket is holding all my photos from 2007-2015 hostage and they have blacked them all out. I’m slowly working at restoring my posts without their help. Such a tiresome bother!

  1. I made Monkey Bread the other day. However, I made mine from scratch using my favorite egg bread recipe. But I might try this recipe next time. It certainly won’t take as long to make and will be just as good! The last picture is mouth-watering!

    Thank you for sharing!

  2. I have heard of Monkey Bread many times but never tried it….but your recipe ~especially w/the nuts!~ looks really simple and good. I will have to try making this. But just ask Ryan, he knows I could still screw it up!! 🙂

  3. Mmmmmm……looks delicious!!! And do you know what? I have actually had some bad cinnamon, so it does exist. Bad cinnamon doesn’t have a lot of flavour, as it is a cheap blend of a little bit of cinnamon and a lot of bland filler. It’s always best to pay a little more for the pure stuff!

  4. Me again – I forgot to mention a little known fact about walnuts. If you can find fresh walnuts (which are NOT bitter) keep them in the freezer. We had a walnut tree when I was growing up, and this is how my mom kept them fresh tasting. Walnuts don’t have a long shelf life and tend to get that bitter taste which causes people to say they don’t like walnuts.

    Hi Elsie, Thanks for the tips about the cinnamon and walnuts. I actually do store my walnuts in the freezer. I love walnuts and want to taste them in their glory. We have a wonderful nut house close to us where we can buy the freshest nuts… yippee!

  5. Wow Ellen this looks great, we can’t get those biscuits here 😦

    but I may be able to try making them from another recipe I have.

    Thanks for this one 🙂

  6. That looks yummy!! Will make that in the weekend! Thanks for the recipe! But I’m not sure we have buttermilk biscuits here in Kuwait! I will definitely be on the hunt for them though…

  7. My grandmother used to make a secret recipe monkey bread. I forgot all about some of the ingredients. So i was looking up monkey bread and yours popped up, I forgot about cinnamon!

  8. Hi its me Ellie again this recipe is wonderful!!!!! its the best tasting… mine didnt cook all the way thru so i broiled it for a minute or so and it was perfect!!!!!
