For the Monkey Bread:

  • 2 cans (16.3 ounces each) refrigerated biscuit dough
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar

For the Glaze:

  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract


1. Preheat and Prepare: Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease a Bundt pan or a 10-inch tube pan.

2. Biscuit Bliss: Open the cans of refrigerated biscuit dough and cut each biscuit into quarters. This will give you bite-sized pieces.

3. Sugar and Cinnamon Mix: In a large resealable plastic bag, combine the granulated sugar and ground cinnamon. Seal the bag and shake it to mix the sugar and cinnamon evenly.

4. Coating the Biscuits: Take each quartered biscuit piece and toss it in the bag with the sugar-cinnamon mixture until it’s coated.

5. Assembling the Monkey Bread: Place the coated biscuit pieces in the greased Bundt pan or tube pan.

6. Caramel Creation: In a saucepan, melt the unsalted butter and brown sugar over medium heat. Stir until the mixture is well combined and starts to bubble.

7. Pouring Sweetness: Pour the melted butter and brown sugar mixture over the biscuit pieces in the pan, evenly distributing it.

8. Baking Brilliance: Bake the Monkey Bread in the preheated oven for 30-35 minutes or until it’s golden brown and the biscuits are cooked through.

9. Cooling Slightly: Remove the bread from the oven and let it cool in the pan for about 10 minutes.

10. Glazing Glory: While the Monkey Bread is cooling, prepare the glaze. In a small bowl, combine the powdered sugar, milk, and vanilla extract. Stir until you have a smooth glaze.

11. Drizzle Delight: Once the bread has cooled slightly, drizzle the glaze over the top.

12. Serving Sweetness: Serve the Easy Monkey Bread while it’s still warm. Encourage everyone to pull apart the sticky, sugary pieces and savor the delightful combination of cinnamon, sugar, and buttery goodness.

Easy Monkey Bread is a sweet and irresistible treat ideal for special occasions or whenever you want to treat yourself to something deliciously comforting.
