I remember making Monkey Bread in junior high school and I thought this would be a great recipe to make with my young children (2,4,& 6 yrs old). This was a great kid participation recipe. My oldest son said, "This is the best bread I've tasted in my whole life!" I held myself back from revealing to him that it was so good because of the tons of sugar and butter. :) I used three jumbo cans of buttermilk biscuits. This was a little too much for the bundt pan. They rose up higher than the pan and some of the sugary mixture dripped in my oven. I used real butter and left out the nuts. I started off putting everything in a big plastic bag, but the bag broke from the weight. I transferred the contents to a huge bowl and mixed the pieces together with my hands. I did not grease my non-stick bundt pan thinking I wouldn't have a problem getting it out. The bottom third of the bread did not come out on its own. It was a good thing the appearance of the finished product didn't matter. I would highly recommend this recipe.
This is fast, easy and a real hit with my DGSs which is a major plus in this house as they are really picky. Wanted to take a photo but can't find where I put my camera - Grrrrrr, hate it when I do that. Oh well, the taste is to die for and it didn't come out as pretty as the photos you already have. Thanks so much for posting.
There are lots of monkey breads recipes out there--some are identical, some have slight variations. We just made this recipe for Christmas breakfast (we make monkey bread every year), and we all agreed that THIS monkey bread was the best ever!
I wanted to try a different recipe for Monkey Bread and I'm I tried this one. Made exactly as stated. The smell of the bread baking was killing us. We were picking at it while it was cooling. Excellent flavor and easy to make.
This tasted delicious but it came out dryer than I thought. not likethe picture at all. I followed the recipe exactly as written except poured a little bit of the sauce half way through. The top which was the bottom while baking is dry and not gooey like I was hoping.... Very easy recipe tho and will make again maybe making more of the butter/sugar sauce.
This was my 1st time making Monkey Bread and it was amazing. I made it as the recipe is written, only I added 1/2 a cup more nuts. This recipe is already one of my favorites! Thanks for posting!
Monkey bread is my favorite! It was gone so fast I think everyone in the house loved it too. Thanks for posting a recipe for this! (I made this without the chopped pecans)
Good gravy! This was awesome. My husband thought he had died and gone to heaven! Thanks for the recipe carolinafan!
We absolutely loved this. I took the rest of it after my Dh and I had a late night snack, to my sister's house and came back with an empty plate. All the kids loved it. We heated bits for just a few seconds in the microwave and it tasted like we had just baked it. I used 2 packages of Grands Biscuits and cut each biscuits into 6 pieces. I also put the pecans in the pan before anything else. I was thinking about putting half the biscuits in the pan then half the butter mixture and repeating, because it was a bit dry in some spots in the middle. Thanks so much carolinafan for a recipe we will be using whenever we get the urge for something cinnamonny. UPDATE: I have also eliminated the nuts and added 1/2 to 3/4 cup creamy peanut butter to the topping. My dh really likes it this way.
YUM! This is so good! Thanks for the great "special breakfast" idea!
