I Need To Find Monkey Bread Recipe?

Hey all,
Can anyone help me out? I once dated this girl and her family always made a dessert they called Monkey Bread. If I recall correctly it appeared to be little dough balls all piled like a pyramid, covered in a glaze. Kinda reminded me of cinnamon rolls. Well any help will be appreciated. Thanks.

My Mom makes this all the time, she has a special “monkey pan” inwhich to make it. Enjoy


2 loaves white bread, uncooked (freezer section of grocery store)
1 stick melted butter (add more if needed)
2 cup sugar
2 tablespoons cinnamon


  1. Thaw bread dough overnight in refrigerator. When soft, use kitchen scissors to cut it up into one inch pieces. Dip dough into melted butter, then roll around in sugar/cinnamon combination until covered.

  2. Line bottom of a bundt pan and then start to layer in evenly. Cook at temperature recommended on dough packaging for about one hour until golden brown and hard on the top. Remove from oven and flip over on to a larger platter. Let sit with pan on top for a few minutes while the sweet mixture runs down the bread.

  3. Garnish with holly, marichiano cherries, candied nuts, icing, or decoration of your choice.

  4. To eat, pick apart—like a bunch of monkeys.

My Mom made this bread with the cinnamon sugar but also done the same way with butter and parmesian cheese. I have made it for my kids also and they love both ways.

I use buttermilk biscuits in the tube instead of the bread.

I have a great, easy recipe for you.

Mix sugar and seasoning (cinnamon) in a bowl and set aside.

Cut each biscuit into four, coat each piece of biscuit in the butter and coat with sugar mixture. Drop in a loaf pan. Continue until all pieces are coated and in the loaf pan. Bake 400 degrees for 20 minutes.

24 ounces frozen dinner roll dough 1 cup packed brown sugar

The night or several hours before serving, grease and flour a 9 or 10 inch tube pan. Mix brown sugar and pudding mix together. Mix white sugar and cinnamon together. Place frozen dinner rolls in pan a layer at a time. Sprinkle brown sugar and pudding mix over first layer of rolls. Sprinkle sugar and cinnamon mixture over the brown sugar and pudding mixture. Spread half the nuts and melted butter over first layer. Repeat with the next layer. Place on counter over night. Do not cover. Next morning bake in a preheated 350° oven for 30 minutes.

Spray a bundt pan with nonstick cooking spray. Mix the granulated sugar and cinnamon. In a saucepan, melt the butter and
brown sugar over low heat, stirring well; set aside. Cut the cream cheese into 20 equal cubes. Press the biscuits out
with your fingers and sprinkle each with 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon sugar. Place a cube of cream cheese in the center of
each biscuit, wrapping and sealing the dough around the cream cheese. Sprinkle 1/2 cup of the nuts into the bottom of the bundt pan. Place half of the prepared biscuits in the pan. Sprinkle with cinnamon sugar, pour half of the melted
butter mixture over the biscuits, and sprinkle on 1/2 cup of nuts. Layer the remaining biscuits on top, sprinkle with
the remaining cinnamon sugar, pour the remaining butter mixture over the biscuits, and sprinkle with the remaining 1/2

My grandma’s recipe:

Monkey Bread
aka Pull-Apart Bread
3-12 oz tubes biscuit dough(buttermilk)
1 C. White Sugar
2 T. Cinnamon
1 C. Brown Sugar
1 Stick melted butter
chopped nuts-walnuts, pecans (optional)

Cut each biscuit into quarters. In bowl or small bag mix white sugar and cinnamon, roll or shake biscuits until well coated.

Place in sprayed flat pan w/ sides ( a bundt pan works well). In a small saucepan melt butter and brown sugar, bring to a boil for 1 min. Drizzle over biscuits. Sprinkle nuts if desired.

Bake at 350 for 30-35 min or 425 till done, approx 10-20 min. Allow to cool 10 min and turn out onto a plate. Do Not cut, the bread pulls apart in bite-sized pieces!

You are Correct. Kinda. You take canned biscuits and cut them up, next you roll them in cinnomon and sugar. Pile them in a well-greased Bundt pan and heat left over cinnomon and sugar mixture mixed with 1 stick of butter. You then pour it over. Bake at 450 until they are golden brown. Remove and invert onto a platter. ENJOY.
