Turn refrigerated biscuits into the best Monkey Bread with this easy recipe. You only need 5 ingredients to make an amazing breakfast the whole family will love.


  • 2 cans refrigerated biscuits
  • ½ cup granulated sugar
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • ½ cup unsalted butter
  • ¾ cup light brown sugar, packed


    1. Preheat oven to 350℉. Liberally grease and flour or spray a 9 cup bundt pan with baking spray. Set aside.
    2. Cut canned biscuits into quarters using a knife or pizza cutter.
    3. In a gallon size storage bag, combine the sugar and cinnamon. Add the biscuit pieces to the bag and shake and rotate the bag until all the pieces are covered with the cinnamon sugar mix.
    4. Place the biscuit pieces into the bundt pan, creating an even layer. Set aside.
    5. In a small saucepan, combine the butter and brown sugar. Whisk over medium low heat until combined and smooth.
    6. Pour over the biscuit pieces. Bake for 35-45 minutes or until the biscuits are fully cooked and no longer raw inside.
    7. Let cool in the pan for 5 minutes. Turn the bread out onto a plate or serving dish. Serve warm.


  • The bread can be stored, in an airtight container, for 2-3 days.
  • To freeze, wrap tightly in plastic wrap and then foil for up to 3 months.
  • Only 5 ingredients needed to make this easy, breakfast treat. A 9 cup bundt pan is a MUST! Don’t use anything smaller as you will have overflow in your oven. I even put a baking sheet under my pan to make sure I didn’t have any spillage in my oven.
  • Extra cinnamon and sugar left in the mixing bag can be sprinkled over the top of the bread before baking.
  • Before the bread cools completely, make sure to remove it from the pan. If it gets left in the pan, it can stick.
  • A standard designed bundt pan works the best. Save the fancy designed bundt pans for another recipe.
  • Nuts or raisins are great add-ins.
