My sister made monkey bread once totally from scratch. It was amazing! It was also extremely time consuming making the dough from scratch. I came across this recipe because I had some biscuits that I needed to use. I found it here. This was easy in terms of not having to make a dough but it did take time to cut up all of the biscuits and then get them coated. I did change a few things from this recipe. I used more sugar, cinnamon, and brown sugar. I also dipped each ball into the melted butter. I then dipped it into a sugar, brown sugar, cinnamon mixture. I loved the idea of the sugar in the bag because it was one less thing to clean up and you could shake the dough in the bag to coat it.


Ingredients
  • 1/2 cup of granulated sugar (I actually used 3/4 cup of sugar)
  • 1 teaspoon of cinnamon (I used 1 1/2 teaspoons of cinnamon)
  • 2 cans (16.3 ounces each) of Pillsbury Grands buttermilk biscuits
  • 1/2 cup of chopped walnuts, optional (I did not use any nuts)
  • 1/2 cup of raisins, optional (I did not use any raisins)
  • 1 cup of firmly packed brown sugar (I used 1 1/2 cups of brown sugar)
  • 3/4 cup of butter, melted


Directions
  1. Pre-heat the oven to 350F.
  2. Grease a bundt pan with shortening.
  3. In a large storage plastic bag, mix the granulated sugar and cinnamon(I also added the brown sugar).
  4. Separate the dough into 16 biscuits.
  5. Cut each biscuit into quarters. (I then rolled each into a ball and dipped in the butter)
  6. Shake the biscuit balls in a bag to coat.
  7. Place the biscuit balls in a pan.
  8. Next add the walnuts and raisins among the biscuit pieces.
  9. In small bowl, mix brown sugar and butter; pour over biscuit pieces. (I did not do this step as I dipped the biscuits into the butter)
  10. Bake 28 to 32 minutes or until golden brown and no longer doughy in center. At about 25 minutes I placed aluminum foil over to keep it from getting overly dark.
  11. When it is finished baking turn the pan  upside down onto serving plate; pull apart to serve. Serve warm and enjoy!
