Shauna's notes for this recipe:
This is a fun treat to make and eat! My mom used to make this for me when I was a kid. It would be a special treat when she made it! I love making it now for Thanksgiving morning

Monkey Bread is always a great way to brighten a morning!  The aroma when it is baking will wake everyone up and they'll have smiles on their faces.  This recipe is a stand-out, and I especially like the addition of coconut.


Cut each biscuit into 4 pieces. Pour sugar and cinnamon into a plastic bag and mix.
Add biscuit pieces, several at a time; shake to coat well.
Place pieces in a buttered tube or Bundt pan until all are used
Sprinkle layers with nuts, raisins or coconut.
Bring brown sugar and butter to a boil in saucepan. Cool 10 minutes, then pour over top of biscuits.
Bake at 350°F for 45 minutes. Allow to cool 15 minutes before removing from pan. Turn upside down to serve

An ez way to cut the biscuits is to use scissors!

I had run out of can biscuits but had can cinnamon rolls so I used them instead. And it really worked well.

what if you have picky eaters in your house and they don't eat nuts or coconut? What's a tasty substitute?
