Caramel Monkey Bread with Pecans

Monkey Bread

Waking up to this cinnamon, caramel goodness…this is how weekend mornings should begin! 🙂


1 –  16.3 oz. can refrigerator biscuits

1 teaspoon cinnamon

1/3 cup sugar

1 stick of butter, melted (1/2 cup)

3/4 cup brown sugar

1/2 cup pecans, chopped


Cut each biscuit into 6 pieces, place them in a gallon zip bag with the sugar and cinnamon, toss around to coat well.

Place the biscuit pieces in a glass pie plate which has been sprayed with non-stick spray.  Combine the melted butter and brown sugar, mix well then pour over the biscuits.  Top with the chopped pecans.

Bake in a 350 F oven for 25 to 30 minutes or until the center pieces are done.  Carefully invert onto a plate or serving platter, serve hot.

Recipe Notes:

I adapted my version from the Pillsbury recipe.  After reading reviews that their recipe was good but not sweet enough, & I thought smaller pieces would allow for a better overall coating.

This would also be great with diced apple pieces, or raisins.
