Cinnamon With Apple Pull-Apart Bread-Monkey Bread

If you love the sweet smell of cinnamon baked goods, do try baking this Cinnamon With Apple Pull-Apart Bread (or aka. Monkey Bread). I will admit that I have a real weakness for any cinnamon baked goodies and when the craving hit me over the recent holidays, the monkey got me into the kitchen to bake this bread! :-) Honestly, I am not sure where it got that nickname; but, this bread is really delicious. The bread is soft, gooey, sweet, and with the baked apple and cinnamon aromatic flavors, you will need to restrain yourself from going for the second or third portion! Anyway, please note that I opted to use store-bought chilled biscuit dough here, instead of making the dough from scratch. If you prefer to make the bread from scratch, then do check out My Kitchen Snippets blog for the recipe. Happy baking!

Cinnamon With Apple Pull-Apart Bread-Monkey Bread


2 Cans (340G X 2) Pillsbury Country Biscuits
½ Cup Granulated Sugar
2 to 2 ½ tsp Ground Cinnamon
1 Apple, peeled, cored and diced
1 Stick (1/2 cup) Unsalted Butter
¾ Cup Brown Sugar

Bundt pan, coated with butter


Preheat the oven to 350˚F.

Mix together the granulated sugar and cinnamon; set aside.

Separate the dough and cut each into quarters. Toss the dough and apple with cinnamon sugar. Layer the dough in the pan, scatters some diced apple and continue to do so until all the dough and apple are used up.

In a small saucepan, melt butter and brown sugar. Then pour the mixture over the dough. Bake for about 30 or until golden brown in color. Cool on rack for about 10 minutes and then invert onto a serving plate. Serve warm.

Serves 6 to 8


  1. Woow-o-wow! This looks fantastic! Thanks for sharing! :D

  2. I love pull apart bread! I've been looking for a from-scratch recipe... do you think that cinnamon roll dough would work?

  3. @Sarah Golden: You are most welcome.

    @Roxan: I think the cinnamon roll dough should work too.

  4. I still have yet to make (or even taste) monkeybread...I think this has pushed me over the edge. Time to get baking! Looks amazing.

  5. I've never heard of monkey bread but this looks just incredible. So tasty.

  6. I've honestly never had monkey bread, but I think this one may have just inspired me to try a batch out!

  7. hi!

    dun tink i've seen any store-bought chilled biscuit dough. =(

    is there any other names for this or any subtitution for it?

  8. @Anonymous: The chilled dough is usually located at the dairy section. You can substitute with buttermilk biscuit dough or try making the dough from scratch?

  9. The light in your pics is great and the way the glaze is shiny.



  10. I've seen this on telly and dying to make it!

  11. That looks irresistible! I believe the name for this came from the fact that you can pick it apart like a monkey. That's what my cooking teacher in summer school told me.

  12. @Esther: I think your teacher might be right! Thanks.

  13. Especially enjoying the wonderful photos of the dishes.

  14. You can use frozen dinner roll dough or make a pound of bread dough. We prefer that over biscuits. The only disadvantage is you need to have time to let it rise. When I make it for breakfast I put the frozen balls of dough in the pan along with the other ingredients. I cover & refrigerate overnight for 8 hours. It will rise & you can bake them fresh for breakfast.

Raw Energy Bars~Chocolate, Cashew, And Almond

I get energized everytime I make Raw Energy Bars at home. I have tried several recipes and flavors before; but, this Chocolate, Cashew, and Almond flavor is currently my favorite!

I'm actually laughing at myself! What have I got into? Trying to make dumplings?? Well, I have seen my late grandmother make them a long time ago. I can remember the ingredients but not the measurements! So, it took me about two hours to come up with the perfect recipes, and I'm glad I did! It was an instant hit! They were all gone, all gobbled up! Make the dough first, add about 480 to 500g of all-purpose flour with 300ml of water. Knead the dough and let it rest. You should be able to make 40 dumplings with the dough. Meanwhile, prepare the filling for the dumplings. Click here for the dumpling wrappers video.
