Grands!® Monkey Bread

I made this Grands!® Monkey Bread this morning for my daughter’s 16th birthday.  Hard to believe she is that old…  But anyway, I made it at her request.  That’s all she wanted for her birthday, well besides an iPhone (which she got).  The only problem is I only had one can of biscuits, but I cut the recipe in half and it worked beautifully.  And it’s probably all the four of us really needed any way!  Instead of using a bundt pan, I used my tart pan.  It was the perfect size and since the bottom drops out, I didn’t have to worry about of those cute little monkey bread parts getting stuck to the pan.

Grands!® Monkey Bread


  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 2 cans (16.3 oz each) Pillsbury® Grands!® Homestyle refrigerated buttermilk biscuits
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts, if desired
  • 1/2 cup raisins, if desired
  • 1 cup firmly packed brown sugar
  • 3/4 cup butter, melted
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 1-2 tsp. milk


  1. Heat oven to 350°F. Lightly grease 12-cup fluted tube pan with shortening or cooking spray. In large -storage plastic food bag, mix granulated sugar and cinnamon.
  2. Separate dough into 16 biscuits; cut each into quarters. Shake in bag to coat. Arrange in bundt pan, adding walnuts and raisins among the biscuit pieces.
  3. In small bowl, mix brown sugar and butter; pour over biscuit pieces.
  4. Bake 28 to 32 minutes or until golden brown and no longer doughy in center. Cool in pan 10 minutes.
  5. Turn upside down onto serving plate.
  6. Combine the powdered sugar and milk 1 tsp. at a time until you have a nice icing consistancy and drizzle over monkey bread.
  7. Pull apart to serve. Serve warm.
