Monkey Bread

Next on the agenda is Monkey Bread! It is a crowd pleaser and children's favorite! This recipe is from SW Steakhouse @ Wynn Las Vegas Hotel & Casino. The recipe calls for bundt pan but I've decided to give it a shot and bake it in a loaf pan. It is semi-homemade recipe as it calls for refridgerator biscuits.

* Flour, for pan
* 1/2 cup sugar
* 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
* 30 buttermilk canned refrigerator biscuits
* 1 stick butter, plus more for pan
* 1/2 cup brown sugar
* 1 cup walnuts


Butter and flour a bundt pan and set aside. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Combine sugar and cinnamon. Cut refrigerator biscuits in half and toss in cinnamon and sugar mixture. Melt the 1 stick of butter in a saucepan and add brown sugar and bring to a boil; then add nuts. Line the bundt pan with biscuits and pour butter mixture over them.

Bake for about 30 minutes. Remove from the pan when it's still hot to avoid sticking. It might take longer to bake depending on your oven.


  1. Yumm... sweet and gooey and cinnamony good. So clever to use the biscuits. Smacking my lips. I would love to have a couple of these.

  2. Never try or seen this before. Very creative :D

  3. This looks delicious!! I could see 40 little fingers in this at our house!!

  4. mmm i just made this too! though I didn't blog about it because I'm lazy. I stuffed mine with cream cheese by folding the biscuit dough around a little glob of cream cheese. yum!
