Monkey Bread



  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Generously grease a 12-cup fluted tube pan or bundt pan with baking spray.
  2. Combine the sugar and cinnamon in a small bowl and set aside.
  3. Cut each biscuit into 4 pieces and melt 1/2 a cup of the butter.
  4. Dip each biscuit piece into the melted butter and shake off the excess, then coat it well in the cinnamon sugar mixture.
  5. Add the biscuit pieces to the prepared pan.
  6. Combine the brown sugar, melted butter and vanilla extract and pour evenly over the top of the biscuits in the pan.
  7. Bake 35-45 minutes or until golden. Let cool for 10 minutes in the pan, then invert onto a plate.
  8. Whisk the powdered sugar, milk and vanilla extract together and drizzle over the monkey bread, then serve warm with any remaining icing.
