Cinnamon Bun Monkey Bread
When I had make Pizza Monkey Bread, I had purchased way too many tubes of refrigerated biscuits just in case I had to re-do the recipe a couple of times to make it perfect.
Turns out, the first go was a hit, so then I had leftover ingredients to use up. We all know that after dinner comes dessert, and that’s how this pull-apart dessert monkey bread came to be. OK, to not waste groceries AND the need for a simple yet outstanding dessert to enjoy with my kids on a lazy afternoon at home.
Cinnamon Bun Monkey Bread is most likely one of the easiest desserts to make, along with basic and practical. Using a bundt pan and few ingredients results in a wonderful sweet treat that is perfect for any occasion from potlucks to no reason at all.
I had fully expected for this to be enjoyed over the course of a couple of days yet everyone picked pieces all evening long until it was gone. It’s kind of nice to have a dessert that isn’t hugely consumed in one sitting, but rather small increments of delicious throughout some time.
That’s why this recipe would make a great addition to an informal gathering, so people can enjoy at their leisure.
Aside from the classic cinnamon bun bread taste, I most love the drizzled icing on top and in every bite. Since this recipe uses refrigerated biscuits, the icing is already there in the package and ready to use as the topping – and it’s so good.
Enjoy this recipe my friends, it’s definitely on to try and make time and again!
Cinnamon Bun Monkey Bread is a mountain of miniature cinnamon buns. Pull-apart pieces of dessert bundles that is so very simple to make.
- 2 cans Pillsbury Grands refrigerated cinnamon rolls, each section quartered
- 1 cup brown sugar
- 1 tbsp cinnamon
- 1/2 cup butter, melted
Preheat oven to 400º. Grease a bundt pan well, and set aside.
Place all biscuit sections in the pan evenly throughout, setting aside the included frosting.
In a bowl, mix together the brown sugar, cinnamon and melted butter. Pour evenly over biscuits
Bake for 20-25 minutes, until dough on the outside is brown and the center feels like it's 'set' when you lightly push on it. If needed, use a fork to gently push aside the top pieces so you have a look and feel of the inner pieces.
Once cooked, remove from oven and allow to stand for 5 minutes then invert onto a plate. Drizzle frosting that came with the biscuits over the top before serving. ENJOY!
