Easy Monkey Bread Recipe

I say it’s great for Thanksgiving and Christmas, but don’t be afraid to make it year-round. These flavors never go out of style in my humble opinion!

Why do they call it monkey bread?
What is monkey bread anyways? If you don’t already know, then you are in for a treat! Monkey Bread is a delicious pastry treat that is soft, moist, sweet, and a little bit sticky. It looks like a cake (and is usually baked in a bundt cake pan), but it’s more like a sweet bread.
It’s like balls of dough squished and baked together, then topped with a sticky sweet icing or glaze, or oftentimes just cinnamon sugar. It’s a pull-apart bread that is meant to be eaten with your hands, which is why they call it monkey bread!
How to Make Pumpkin Pie Monkey Bread
This easy monkey bread recipe is soooooo delicious, I just can’t stop thinking about it! Luckily it just takes a handful of ingredients, including pre-made biscuit dough and a can of pumpkin puree. In less than an hour, you can have this amazing pumpkin pie monkey bread ready to serve!
All you have to do is give the biscuit dough that pumpkin spice flavor, make up the pumpkin pie mixture to slather onto the biscuits, place the biscuits in the bundt pan, make a brown sugar/butter icing to pour on top, and then bake.
I’m making this Pumpkin Pie Monkey Bread recipe for you just in time for you to buy the ingredients and make it for your family on Thanksgiving morning. It’s a guaranteed hit and sure to please. What kind of person wouldn’t love Pumpkin Pie Monkey Bread?? I just can’t fathom it. We added a simple glaze that is optional, but again, who doesn’t love a little icing in their life.

Maybe it was the Billington’s dark brown sugar I employed for this recipe that made this recipe a failure for me twice in a row in two days. I sooo wanted this recipe to work for me so I could serve it at a commercial kitchen I work out of!
Billington’s dark brown sugar is more moist than standard brown sugar. It’s got deep molasses flavor and is not like other brown sugars in quality. Coupled with a whole cup of pumpkin puree, my monkey bread was ooey gooey and did not bake dry like your monkey bread appears, even though I kept it in the oven for 45 minutes. What to do??!!
I am sorry this didn’t work for you! Maybe a little less of the mixture!
Well, I tried making this twice…two days in a row, and both times this product did not turn out well. The taste is certainly there, but there was too much ooey gooey! Mine did not look dry and crispy on the outside like yours. Too much canned pumpkin is called for, in my opinion. I will have to go to another recipe for a pumpkin pie spice monkey bread!
Not Nearly enough time to cook thru. A gooey mess. Spilled out all over the counter. Scooping back into pan and cooking longer, hoping it wasn’t a waste of time…..
I am sorry it didn’t work out! Each oven bakes differently so be sure to monitor it!
Terrible. Completely not baked in the time indicated in the recipe. I cut the sugar called for in the mix for the dough to 2/3 C and did not add any more sugar to the pumpkin pie mixture and it was STILL way too sweet. The butter sugar mixture bubbled over and burned causing copious smoke. Did not slide out of the bundt pan well, despite liberal spraying, so gooey hot sugar lava spilled all over. And again, all that and it wasn’t even cooked through nor did it taste good because it was so sweet. Would not recommend this recipe at all.
I am sorry this didn’t work out for you!
Is it possible to make this recipe ahead of time? Would like to do everything but bake it and take it as hostess gift to my sister for Thanksgiving so she doesn’t have to worry about breakfast the next morning.
Yes I think you should be able to. No more than 8-10 hours ahead I’d say though.
Biscuit dough…..like buttermilk biscuits?
