Pull Apart Cake (Monkey Bread)

One of our many sacred Christmas morning traditions, this delicious cake was always the first thing to greet my sister and I on Christmas morning as we sat upstairs waiting for the “green light” to run downstairs and open our presents.  A glass of cold milk, a few pieces of this cake… perfection.


This year, I had a handsome kitchen assistant who happily helped every step of the way.

And peeked in the oven every step of the way, too…



  • 3 Rolls of Biscuits (Plain, not flaky/etc)
  • Mixture:  1 C Sugar, 2 T Cinnamon, 1/4 C Brown Sugar, firmly packed
  • 1 Stick of Butter

1.  Grease a bundt pan, sugar the bottom.

2. Quarter biscuits.

3. Dredge biscuit quarters in sugar mixture.

4. Layer biscuits/sprinkle sugar/biscuits/sugar/etc.

5. Melt butter over the entire dish.

6. Bake 30-35 at 350 degree.

Tip:  Don’t pack the biscuits in, loosely toss them in.  Otherwise it cooks very unevenly.  Trust me on this.
