  • bundt cake pan
  • fork or whisk
  • pizza roller, dough cutter, or knife
  • Bowls
  • kitchen spray


  • 3 - 10 ounce containers of pre-made biscuit dough
  • 3/4 cup of white granulated sugar 150g
  • 1 Tbsp of cinnamon 8g
  • 3/4 cup of melted butter 185g
  • 3/4 cup of Brown sugar or White granulated sugar 150g


  • Preheat oven to 350 F (176 C). Combine cinnamon and granulated sugar in a large bowl and set aside.
  • Use store-bought biscuit dough or make homemade dough. Then cut the dough up in chunks roughly 1 to 1.5 inches in size. Next, dump those into the cinnamon and sugar and make sure they get nice and coated.
  • In a small bowl melt the butter in the microwave. Or optionally use a pot and melt the butter on the stovetop. Pour the brown sugar in the butter and whisk to combine. This is going to make that monkey bread nice and gooey.
  • Add the biscuit dough chunks into a bundt cake pan which has been sprayed with some sort of kitchen spray or use shortening on it. You could also use a muffin pan if you like and put 3 to 4 pieces in each one.
  • Pour the brown sugar and butter sauce all over it. Then bake it in the oven at 350 F (176 C) for 30 to 35 minutes until nice and golden brown on top.
  • Once out of the oven allow it to cool for 15 minutes. Flip it over onto a plate and enjoy!
