This cinnamon bread is made with with refrigerated biscuits that are cut up into quarters. I’m not sure how monkey bread got it’s name, but my kids looked at me funny when I told them I was making monkey bread. I told them I’m not sure how monkey bread got it’s name, but I’m guessing it’s because it is in pieces so it is easy to pull apart with your fingers, so you eat it like a monkey (I could be totally wrong on this, ha!).

Ingredients for Easy Cinnamon Biscuit Monkey Bread
The ingredients for this monkey bread are common and easy to find ingredients. I love the simplicity of this bread and I can’t wait to try it out while camping this summer in our dutch oven. I’ll let you know how that goes;)
The ingredients include:
- skim milk (for frosting and with egg)
- refrigerated biscuits, I use the ®Pillsbury Grands! Biscuits with flaky layers
- cinnamon and sugar mixture
- powdered sugar (for frosting)
That is it! I love easy recipes. I’m a busy mom to three boys and when I find an easy recipe they love, it’s a keeper! Just because something is easy doesn’t make it any less spectacular! In fact, I think that is what makes it even more spectacular!
I used a monkey bread ceramic baking mold for this monkey bread, but I think you could use a small bundt pan too. You will also need foil to cover the bread during the majority of the baking time. I use a handheld immersion blender to blend the frosting to a smooth state. I find if I hand stir it, the powdered sugar stays in lumps.
This monkey bread is best eaten fresh the day it is made, however, it tastes great the next day too.
I can’t wait for you all to try this recipe! Let me know how it goes for you, I’d love to hear about it;)
