[bctt tweet=”Enjoy AMAZING Monkey Bread with this delicious recipe!”]
2 tubes of Grand size refrigerator biscuits. (I used Pillsbury Grands Flaky Layers Honey Butter Biscuits)
1 stick unsalted butter
3/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup sugar
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 cup chopped walnuts
To start, preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 12 cup bundt pan with butter or cooking spray. Open the tubes of biscuits and separate, set aside. Place the sugar and cinnamon into a gallon sized plastic bag and blend. Working in batches of 4, drop the biscuits into the bag and shake to coat each biscuit with cinnamon sugar. Place the biscuits standing on their sides and overlapping in the bundt pan. Repeat with remaining biscuits.
No wasting here! Sprinkle any remaining cinnamon sugar on top of the biscuits.
Evenly space the walnuts between and on top of the biscuits.
Melt the butter in a medium bowl. Once completely melted, add the brown sugar and stir until the
brown sugar is incorporated into the butter. Pour over the biscuits to coat.
Place the bundt pan in the oven for 40 minutes or until the top is golden brown and the edges are crisp. Let sit to cool for 5 minutes.
Invert on a serving platter, and lift off to release the Monkey Bread.
Pull apart the biscuits and serve warm!
Monkey Bread is a favorite for Breakfast, Brunch, Potlucks and just about any other time!
