Monkey Bread (Original Version)


Refrigerated biscuits with cinnamon and sugar baked in a tube pan. My grandchildren and my children love this easy to make, delicious treat.


  • Bread:
  • 3 (12 oz) cans refrigerated biscuits (brand name isn't important)
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 cup chopped pecans
  • Topping Sauce:
  • 1 stick margarine or butter
  • 1 cup dark brown sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • Butter for greasing the bundt pan


Step 1

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Step 2

In a glass cup, mix the granulated sugar and cinnamon.

Step 3

In a small amount of flour, take the biscuits and cut in quarters or sixes. Coat the biscuits with the cinnamon and sugar mixture. (If you have trouble having the cinnamon /sugar mixture sticking to the biscuit, roll the biscuits in a small amount of melted butter).

Step 4

Layer the biscuits and chopped pecans in a well greased bundt pan.

Step 5

In a medium saucepan over medium heat, cook the margarine/butter and brown sugar until it bubbles (you could prepare using 1/2 the stick of butter, if you prefer). Add the vanilla and stir. Pour the sauce over the biscuits.

Step 6

Cook at 350 degrees for 30 to 40 minutes. After it is cooked, turn the pan over onto a plate. Makes a really pretty presentation. Let it cool and enjoy.
