Cut each biscuit into quarters. Have butter, melted in a small bowl, then another bowl of the sugar and cinnamon, mixed, sitting next to biscuits. Drop a few biscuit pieces in butter bowl, get out with a slotted spoon, allowing butter to drip back in bowl. Transfer to sugar bowl and toss to coat. Put into a tube or bundt pan. Bake at 350 degrees F for 20-30 minutes, watching carefully. When done in center, invert onto a plate or platter with sides. Serve warm.

This bread makes a great side for many types of meals. This page contains a garlic Parmesan monkey bread recipe.
This page contains cinnamon pull-apart bread recipes. Pull-apart or monkey bread is made by baking balls of bread dough nestled together in a pan, allowing it to be easily pulled apart when eaten.
Pull apart rolls into pieces and roll in cinnamon and put in bundt pan. Mix butter into mixture and on top. Bake 35 minutes at 350 degrees F.
You need three separate bowls. Dissolve yeast in a small amount of lukewarm water. In another bowl, mix eggs, sugar, salt, and 1 cup water.

I'm looking for the recipe from the Williams-Sonoma monkey bread mold package that has cream cheese rolled into it. Does anyone have that?

Go to google & type in "gorilla bread recipe". I don't know about W&S's recipe but Paula Deen has one that hear tell is quite yummy!
pull apart: monkey bread.
3/4 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup chopped pecans
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. In a small bowl, combine the granulated sugar, pecans, and zest; set aside. Separate the biscuits. Place about 3/4 teaspoon cream cheese in the center of each biscuit. Fold each biscuit in half over the cheese, pressing the edges to seal.
Dip the biscuits in melted butter, then dredge in the granulated sugar mixture. Place the biscuits, curved-side down, in a single layer in the hollows of a lightly greased 12-cup bundt pan, spacing them evenly (do not stack). Place any remaining biscuits around the tube, filling any gaps. Drizzle any remaining butter over the biscuits, and sprinkle with
any remaining sugar mixture. Bake for 35 to 40 minutes, until golden brown. Immediately invert the cake onto a serving platter. Combine the confectioners' sugar and orange juice, stirring well; drizzle the glaze over the warm cake. Serve warm. Good luck.
I'm finding that often times my caramel sauce (from brown sugar and butter) in my monkey bread ends up granulated. The last time it was granulated and hard. I don't know how to fix that. I believe I'm cooking it as directed.

Quarter biscuits. Put in a paper bag to shake up in sugar, powdered sugar and cinnamon. Put quartered biscuits in this and shake up to coat. Now put biscuits in a bundt pan. Boil together brown sugar, margarine or butter and water. Pour over biscuits. Sprinkle nuts on top, (opt.). Bake at 350 degrees F for 1 hour.

Put stick of butter or margarine in bowl and melt in microwave. Take out now thawed bread dough. Pull off small pieces and roll into a ball.

You can also use those biscuits that come in a tube. All you have to do is cut them in half. It may be easier than using frozen bread if you are in a hurry. (11/30/2004)
I always alternate layers of raisins and pecans with the bread dough sooo good. Also make a sticky sauce of cup brown sugar and half stick butter and alternate these to makes a good sticky monkey bread. very addicting.LOL (12/07/2005)

Yes, this is an excellent recipe. I too, have used the canned biscuits. They are wonderful! Am looking forward to trying the butterscotch pudding for a tasty change, as I love butterscotch! Thanks for the excellent recipes. (04/25/2006)

I like using the butter biscuits when I make
mine...also, may sister adds walnuts to hers.
Thanks for sharing your wonderful recipes. I always use frozen bread dough for any recipe that calls for bread dough or biscuits. It saves on time and the taste is unbelieveably close to homemade. Rhodes frozen dough is my favorite, you can buy the loaves or rolls. They also make yummy cinnamon rolls. Thanks again! (12/12/2007)
