Cinnamon & Sugar “Monkey” Bread

Monkey BreadAnytime I pass those pretzel or cinnamon bun shops in the mall, I’m immediately lured in by their sweet, cinnamon-y aroma. Sadly, my wallet isn’t too fond of this habit, so I’ve found a way to satisfy that sweet tooth with this pull-apart dessert. It’s great snack food for parties, too — just grab a piece and go!

Utensils required: gallon-size resealable bag, bundt pan (or any deep-dish, oven-safe pan will do), sauce pan, oven/stovetop, oven mitts, knife, spoon


– 1 cup sugar

Р2 tablespoons cinnamon

– 1 cup brown sugar

– one stick of butter

– 4 cans of 10-count refrigerated biscuit dough (in cans; the cheapest kind you can buy works just fine)

– Pam/cooking spray

Time commitment: 10-15 minutes to prepare, 35 to bake

Steps (serves 10-12 … or more):

1. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees, and spray the bottom and sides of the bundt pan with cooking spray (or lightly grease it with butter).

2. Open each package of biscuits, separating them. Cut each biscuit into fourths.

3. Now, pour the cup of sugar (not brown sugar) and the 2 tablespoons of cinnamon into the resealable bag. Seal it and shake it, so the ingredients are thoroughly mixed.

4. Next, toss a couple of dough balls into the bag and mix them around in the cinnamon and sugar. Once they’re fully coated, take them out and put them in the bundt pan. Continue layering the pieces until you’ve run out of dough.

5. Take out a saucepan and cook the stick of butter and cup of brown sugar over medium heat, stirring continuously until the grains disappear into a smooth sauce.

6. Pour the sauce over the dough. Then, cook it in the oven for 35 minutes.
