Amy’s Monkey bread

For those of us who are a bit less kitchen savvy, and aren’t currently worried about diabetes.(AKA: this is crazy-simple and there’s a lot of butter and sugar involved.)

Note: this is also a fun one to make with your small humans.


1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 tsp cinnamon
2 cans Pillsbury Grands biscuits (the big ones that are 8 to a can)
1 cup packed brown sugar
3/4 cup melted butter


  1. Heat oven to 350
  2. Lightly grease bunt pant (it’s gotta be a bunt)
  3. Cut each raw biscuit (there should be 16) into quarters (I like to use a pizza cutter, it’s very satisfying)
  4. In a large ziplock bag, combine granulated sugar and cinnamon.
  5. Toss dough quarters into bag and toss to coat, then arrange in pan.
  6. Mix brown sugar and melted butter.
  7. Pour mix over biscuit pieces in pan.
  8. Bake 45 min or until golden brown and no longer super doughy in the center.
  9. Cool in pan 10 minutes.
  10. Flip upside down onto serving plate.
  11. Enjoy while warm and gooey if possible.

Goes great with black coffee and reheats well. You can also do a simple sugar glaze over the finished cake if that’s not enough sugar for you. 🤪
