Caramel Apple Monkey Bread Recipe

There are more than 600 recipes on this site. Not a single one is for monkey bread. We have discussed scones, pancakes, waffles, even more pancakes, and doughnuts (a whole lot of doughnuts), but we haven’t discussed everyone’s favorite sticky pull-apart bread, which tugs at our taste buds and makes it difficult to stick to a single taste.

Monkey bread, I’m sorry I didn’t give you enough attention when it came to the breakfast carb spotlight. And that is about to change with this quick and simple autumnal update on the traditional dish, which features easy-to-make caramel sauce and tart diced Granny Smith apples.

It’s sweet and sticky, and you can easily share it with two or 20 of your fellow fans of pull-apart bread. Take the pre-made biscuit dough and begin slicing the apples for my new favorite breakfast treat, ideal for busy weekday mornings and leisurely weekend brunches.

Nutritional Information: ServingSize 1 serving; calories 228 kcal; carbohydrate 30 g; fat 12 g; saturated fat 7 g; cholesterol 30 mg; sodium 49 mg; sugar 27 g.


  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 2 (16.3-oz.) cans refrigerated biscuits
  • 1 1/2 cups small diced (peeled) Granny Smith apples
  • 1 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 3/4 cup unsalted butter, melted


  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Grease a 12-cup fluted bundt pan with cooking spray.
  2. In a medium bowl, stir together the sugar and cinnamon. Set the mixture aside.
  3. Cut each biscuit into quarters after dividing the dough into 16 pieces. Toss each piece of dough in the bowl of sugar and cinnamon to evenly coat it on all sides. In the bundt pan that has been prepared, layer the dough pieces with the diced apples.
  4. Brown sugar and melted butter should be combined in a small bowl or liquid measuring cup. Pour the mixture evenly on top of the dough. When the monkey bread is no longer doughy in the center, bake it for 28 to 32 minutes. The bread should be taken out of the oven and left to cool for five minutes in the pan before being placed upside-down on a serving plate. Serve the bread immediately.

Caramel Apple Monkey Bread


What is monkey bread sauce made of?

You’ll cut the biscuit dough up into pieces. The biscuit pieces will be dusted with a mixture of granulated white sugar and brown sugar, and the monkey bread will be topped with a caramel-like sauce made from butter and more brown sugar.

What pans can you use for monkey bread?

A Bundt pan, tube pan, or loaf pan can all be used to make monkey bread. Personally, I prefer using a tube pan or Bundt pan because the shape of the pan allows hot air to flow up through the center of the bread, baking all of the pieces.

Why do they call it monkey bread?

The phrase “monkey bread” got its name because it was a finger food that people would tear apart like a monkey would.

Can you make monkey bread ahead of time and reheat?

When it’s time to serve, reheat the monkey bread that you made in advance. Just follow the directions for baking it up until that point. Refrigerate the pan for up to 12 hours while tightly covered with foil or plastic wrap. Preheat the oven when you’re ready to bake, then proceed as instructed.
