Monkey Bread

Funny name, eh?  But this cake is so delicious & easy. I recently made this & plan to make this for Easter this year.    This is one of those comfort foods.


4 cans refrigerated biscuits
1 cup packed brown sugar
1 1/2 sticks butter (3/4 cup)
1/2 cup white sugar
2 Tablespoons cinnamon
1/2 cup raisins or crushed walnuts (these are optional, it's great with or without them)


1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F and grease a 9-10 inch tube pan.

2. Mix white sugar and cinnamon in a medium sized plastic bag. Cut the biscuits into halves or quarters and place six to eight biscuit pieces in the sugar cinnamon mix. Shake well.

3. Arrange pieces in the bottom of the greased pan. Continue layering until all the biscuit pieces are coated and in the pan. If you are using raisins, place them among the biscuit pieces as you are layering.

4. In a small saucepan, melt the butter with the brown sugar over medium heat. Boil for 1 minute. Pour over the layered biscuits.
5. Bake for 35 minutes. Let bread cool in pan for 10 minutes, then turn out onto a plate. 
Some people make this bread with an icing on top.  I don't do that as it is sweet enough as is. Enjoy!

Have a great day :)

  1. Wow! That sure looks really crunchy in the outside and chewy in the inside. I think chocolate filling is a good addition too!
