Cinnamon Roll Monkey Bread

5-6 Servings
40 min

During the week, I typically make a quick and easy basic breakfast, like scrambled eggs and bacon, cereal and toast, or frozen waffles and a smoothie. So on the weekends when I’m not in a hurry, I like to make something a little more special! I had a package of biscuits that needed to be used up, so this weekend I got creative and used them to make cinnamon roll monkey bread in a Bundt pan. They turned out so well! They are super easy, don’t require many ingredients, and they don’t take too long to make. Who doesn’t love that?

For the monkey bread:

  • 16 oz pillsbury buttermilk biscuits
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 Tbsp cinnamon
  • 1 Tbsp brown sugar

For the frosting:

  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 Tbsp milk
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla


For the monkey bread:

Preheat oven to 350° and heavily grease a bundt pan.
Mix together the sugars and cinnamon.
Cut up the biscuits to bite size pieces. I cut each biscuit into 4 pieces.
Then roll the biscuits in the cinnamon sugar and place in the bundt pan.
Bake for 20-30 minutes.

For the frosting:

Mix together powdered sugar, milk, and vanilla.
Add more milk if you want it thinner.

      I look forward to making this & especially since I only use non-dairy milks. For now, oat milk is my favorite.

    Do you serve this in the bundt pan, or can you flip it out of the pan onto a platter and then add the frosting?

      I just serve it out of the Bundt pan but you should be able to flip it and then frost it! I’ll have to try that out next time!
