Equipment

  • 10 cup Bundt pan
  • Kitchen sheers

Ingredients

  • cup granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon apple pie spice
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 2 packages refrigerated flaky biscuit dough
  • 1 ½ cups apple pieces from about 4 small apples, peeled and cut into chunks
  • ½ cup unsalted butter melted
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Liberally spray a Bundt pan with baking spray and set aside.
  • In a large bowl, whisk together the sugar, cinnamon, apple pie spice and salt.
  • Using a pair of kitchen shears, cut four of the biscuits into quarters directly into the bowl with the spiced sugar. Gently toss the biscuit pieces to coat and place in prepared Bundt pan.
  • Toss ¼ of the apple chunks in the spiced sugar and sprinkle over the biscuit pieces.
  • Repeat this process of cutting biscuits, coating in sugar, putting into the pan, and topping with apples three more times.
  • Whisk together the butter, brown sugar, and vanilla extract until smooth. Evenly pour over the biscuit and apple pieces in the Bundt pan.
  • Bake the monkey bread in the preheated oven for 60 minutes. Cover the top with foil at 40 minutes to avoid scorching.
  • Remove from the oven and let rest for ten minutes before inverting onto a serving platter. If properly greased, the monkey bread will easily release from the pan and out onto the platter.
  • Serve the monkey bread warm with fresh coffee for a real breakfast treat!

Notes

  • Monkey bread is best served the day it is made, but can be covered in foil and stored in an airtight container for up to one day.
  • Recipe adapted from Pillsbury.
  • Refer to the post for the best way to peel and cut apples.
