Easy Monkey Bread is one of those recipes that you make it and think, “Wow, why didn’t I do this sooner?” I remember my mother making homemade bread dough, kneading it and letting it rise, before breaking off small balls of it, rolling it in butter and cinnamon sugar, then baking it to make this wonderful, sticky mess of a breakfast. It would take her hours, and often she would make it the day before we were to eat it. I woke up one Sunday morning craving this delicious mess, but without the time to make it.
I looked in the fridge and my light bulb went on. Cinnamon rolls in a tube! How perfect would that be as the base of my delicious childhood memory? So, I started opening all three tubes I had and improvising a way to make Easy Monkey Bread. After it was baked, it was hard to keep the family away from it so it could cool enough not to burn little mouths! Four people devoured three tubes of cinnamon rolls in record time, with two children eating the majority of it. I’d say it was a hit. When the plate was empty, I already had questions about when would we have it again!
- 3 tubes cinnamon rolls (regular size, not jumbo)
- 1 stick butter, melted
- 1 C sugar
- 1 T cinnamon
- Cooking spray
- Heat oven to 400 degrees F.
- Spray a bundt or angel food pan will cooking spray.
- Mix the sugar and cinnamon.
- Open the tubes of cinnamon rolls and cut each one in half. Roll into balls and dredge in the butter, then cinnamon sugar. Place each ball in the prepared pan, stacking evenly around the pan. Continue with all the balls until complete.
- Bake in oven for 15-20 minutes, until the bread, when pressed, is soft but firm and springs back.
- Let cool for about 10 minutes, then place a plate over the top of the pan, flip, and remove the bread.
- Cut the icing packets open and drizzle over the bread. Serve!
Easy Monkey Bread ~ The Next Favorite Breakfast
Easy Monkey Bread is a great weekend breakfast or brunch bread. Pair it with some eggs and bacon, and you are all set for a perfect morning with your family. Next time, I’m going to try it with the bacon IN the bread, crumbled up in pieces. Sweet and salty is my favorite combination, and I’m up for the challenge of switching this up. You can even add your favorite nuts for a bit of crunch.
So, Sunday morning, get up and bake some sweet goodness. Your family will love it and will ask for Easy Monkey Bread again and again!

I use to use the bisquts for my monkey bread cut in 1/2 and dip in butter and then brown sugar that had cinnnamon and into
a sprayed pan. Well one day I thought to myself how could i make these so that they are good the
next day without microwaving them. I used Crescents and did them the same way. They never made it to the next day. They were
