Looking for a new dessert? A great alternative to the usual cake or pie, this pull-apart monkey bread is perfect for any special occasion. Originally a Hungarian dish, monkey bread is now a very popular dessert in the U.S. It is also extremely easy to make and will certainly please any crowd. Though it’s meant to be pulled apart, this sweet treat can also be cut into slices and served with vanilla ice cream for a more traditional cake-like serving. You can enjoy this gooey, sweet and sticky dessert all year round!
- 2 cans of refrigerated biscuits (I used the Pillsbury flaky layers buttermilk biscuits)
- 1 cup sugar
- 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
- ½ cup unsalted butter
- 1 cup brown sugar
- Chopped pecans or walnuts (optional)
- Heat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit, and grease a bundt pan with cooking spray or butter.
- Use kitchen scissors to cut each biscuit into fours.
- Mix your sugar and cinnamon together, and place in a bowl or plastic bag. Coat each biscuit in the cinnamon-sugar mixture.
- Start layering the biscuit pieces, making sure not to leave any spaces. If incorporating nuts, add them in between each layer of dough.
- In a pan, melt the butter and add the brown sugar and any of the cinnamon-sugar mixture that is left. Mix everything together and let it simmer, but make sure it doesn’t boil.
- Pour the mixture over the biscuits, and bake for 35-40 minutes. Enjoy!
