This is such a simple monkey bread recipe to make!


  • 2 16oz cans of homestyle biscuits
  • 3/4 C unsalted sweet cream butter
  • 1 1/4 C sugar
  • 1 tbsp. cinnamon extract
  • 1/4 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 6 oz cream cheese, softened
  • 4 tbsp. milk, plus extra if needed
  • 1/2 C powdered sugar
  • 12 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 2 C bright colorful funfetti sprinkles
  • 1 piping bag with round tip


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and spray the bundt pan with non stick spray.

Put the biscuits on a cutting board and cut them into quarters.

Put them in a bowl and sprinkle with 1 cup of the sprinkles.

Toss until covered.

Roll the biscuit pieces into a ball.

Melt butter and add in the sugar and vanilla.

Put the dough ball layer in the bundt pan and pour over 1/3 of the butter mixture.

Repeat with more layers until filled.

Put in the oven and bake for up to 35 minutes.

Covered with foil if the top is browning too quickly. The sugar needs to melt all the way.
