Pioneer Woman's Monkey Bread

"Wow wow wow. Clearly, USC alums can cook ;) Loving this easy, simple and oh so delicious and gluttonous treat! This calls for a bundt pan but I've successfully cut the recipe in a third and used a loaf pan."

Ready In:



  • preheat that oven to 350.
  • open up all three cans of biscuits and cut each biscuit into quarters.
  • At this time you’ll want to combine the 1 cup of regular sugar with 2-3 teaspoons of cinnamon. I use 3 teaspoons of cinnamon and this gives it a fairly strong cinnamon flavor. If you’re not so hot on cinnamon, cut it back to 2 teaspoons. Dump these into a 1 gallon zip bag and shake to mix evenly.
  • drop all of the biscuit quarters into the cinnamon-sugar mix. Go ahead…all of them. Yes, they’re sticking together right now, but just trust me.
  • Once all the biscuit quarters are in the bag, seal it and give it a vigorous shake. You might have some excess sugar left over and that’s okay.
  • Spread these nuggets out evenly in your bundt pan. I suppose you might want to grease this pan before doing this, but I’m pretty sure the gallon of butter we are about to add will keep it safe. Un-greased always works for me.
  • melt those two sticks of butter together with 1/2cup of brown sugar. This can be light or dark brown sugar.
  • Stir together over a medium-high heat until the two become one.
  • Once the brown sugar butter has become one color, you can pour it over the biscuits.At first…it’s going to look like too much. It’s okay though.
  • Bake this @ 350 degrees for about 30-40 minutes until the crust is a deep brown on top.
  • If you have the willpower, allow this to cool for about 15-30 minutes before turning it over onto a plate. If it doesn’t slide right down onto the plate, give it a few love-taps until it plops. It’ll hold.

    The first recipe we made in 7th grade Home Ec. Not my own first recipe as I had been helping in the kitchen for years by then, but still a classic. Sugary, buttery, everything you'd want as a kid. Pecans add a nice crunch that I like. We also put maraschino cherries in the bottom of the pan for color when it is turned out onto a platter.

    Well there goes my diet! This recipe is insanely delicious, and I couldn't stop picking off little bites here and there. It was also so super easy to make. I was skeptical that it wouldn't come out of the pan easily but it totally did! Definitely make this, I'm still dreaming about it.
