The best monkey bread studded with pecans

Look at those luscious peaks and valleys. It’s a circle of caramel-coated crevices that never ends, piece by sticky piece.

When it comes to classic monkey bread, store-bought biscuits do the trick. The goal here is to transform something ordinary into something extraordinary.

Biscuit pieces covered in cinnamon and sugar

While many recipes call for a homemade caramel, I’ve crafted a stovetop-free version that requires just four ingredients. Pecan monkey bread is my favorite variety, but any nut can be subbed in to add the perfect crunch to each bite.

Easy Pecan Monkey Bread

  • 1/2
    cup
    sugar
  • 1
    teaspoon
    ground cinnamon
  • 2
    (16.3-oz.) cans refrigerated biscuits
  • 1
    cup
    chopped pecans
  • 1
    cup
    packed light brown sugar
  • 1
    teaspoon
    vanilla extract
  • 3/4
    cup
    unsalted butter, melted

Preheat the oven to 350°F. Grease a 12-cup fluted bundt pan with cooking spray.

In a large bowl, stir together the sugar and cinnamon.

Separate the biscuits then cut each into four pieces. Add the biscuit pieces to the cinnamon-sugar mixture, tossing them together so that all of the biscuits are coated.

In a separate bowl, whisk together the brown sugar and melted butter. Stir in the pecans.

Add half of the butter mixture to the bottom of the bundt pan then add the biscuit pieces on top. Pour the remaining half of the butter mixture atop the biscuits then bake the monkey bread for 28 to 32 minutes or until it is cooked through.

Remove the pan from the oven and allow the monkey bread to cool for 10 minutes in the pan before inverting it onto a serving platter.
