Blueberry Vanilla Monkey Bread is like the gold-standard for breakfast at our house. It’s funny because until a few years ago, I had no idea what monkey bread was…and why in the heck (keepin’ it classy) it’s called Monkey Bread? Whatever you want to call it – this is tasty eating!  If you’ve had any kind of monkey bread before and liked it…you’ll think you’ve gone to heaven when you try this kind!

The blueberries become hot and sweet during the baking process and they make their own syrup. This is my kind of recipe.😀 It only has only a few simple ingredients and in less than one hour you can make this amazing pull apart cake. Watching the bread pop out of the inverted pan is amazing. As the loaf pops out, the natural blueberry syrup runs down the sides of the baked biscuit pieces and absolutely smells like heaven. It’s super easy, so indulge yourself and give it a try!

How To Make Monkey Bread

You’ll LOVE how simple this monkey bread is to make!

Ingredients needed to make Blueberry Vanilla Monkey Bread

  • 2 cans jumbo-size biscuits ( I used Buttermilk flavored)
  • 1-1/2 cups fresh blueberries
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 stick unsalted butter
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract

Instructions:

Get started by preheating the oven to 350 degrees. Grease a bundt pan, mine is 12 cup size, with cooking spray or shortening.

No bundt pan? No worries, you can easily make monkey bread in a loaf pan or round cake pan. I recommend using 2 pans and use half the ingredients in each, or bake this recipe in 2 batches.

Open the cans of biscuits and cut each biscuit into 4 pieces. Use a very sharp knife or you will become annoyed very quickly with the raw biscuits sticking to the knife. Using two cans of biscuits, you’ll have a total of 64 cut pieces.

Into a large plastic bag, add the cinnamon and 1/2 cup of the white sugar.  Working in batches, place the biscuit pieces in the bag and shake to coat with the cinnamon and sugar mixture. Transfer the coated pieces to the bundt pan.

As the coated biscuit pieces are placed in the pan, place blueberries on top and in-between the biscuit pieces. When all have been transferred to the pan, pour any remaining cinnamon-sugar mixture over the top of the biscuits. Sprinkle on a more blueberries if you like.

In a microwave-safe cup or bowl, melt the entire stick of butter. We love to use a glass measuring cup with a handle to mix the butter and sugar syrup, it’s so easy to pour with a handle! Remove from the microwave and add the remaining white sugar, brown sugar and vanilla. Stir until very well mixed. Interesting how all of  my favorite recipes have a butter wrapper to lick 😋.

Pour the butter mixture evenly over the biscuits and blueberries in the pan. Then wait until no one is watching, grab a spoon (or use your fingers) and eat whatever remains of the butter mixture in the bowl! OMG it is too yummy!

Bake on the middle rack of the 350 degree oven for about 40-45 minutes, until the top is browned and the biscuits in the center of the pan feel firm to the touch when pressed. When done, place on a cooling rack for 10 minutes then invert onto a large plate.  The berries will be very hot. Allow to cool slightly before serving. Cut and serve warm.

  1. Hi Eva, thank you very much! I’m so glad you liked it😋

  2. 5 stars
    Made this last weekend and it was simply outstanding! The texture, smell and taste were out of this world. Thanks for a fabulous and very easy recipe.

  3. Hi Stacy, thanks for the question. I would not tweak the recipe…just use a different baking pan. A loaf pan or round cake pan will work just fine, just keep your eye on the oven because the baking time may be reduced depending on the pan you use and the amount of ingredients. Hope that helps😉.

  4. How would you tweet the recipe if you forgot you don’t have a Bundt pan??

  5. Hi Mary, thank you for the comment and rating! After so many years, and eating more monkey bread than I will admit, this is still a favorite. It must be the soft and syrupy blueberries…they are completely addictive 😋!
