Pumpkin Gorilla Bread with SoCo Toffee Sauce

Noelle Boesenberg


I was making Paula Deen's Gorilla Bread with a friend:

Me: Wouldn't it be awesome if we put pumpkin inside with the cream cheese?

My Friend: AND wouldn't it be awesome if we served it with the sauce from toffee pudding...??

Me: Oh!! AND wouldn't it be even MORE awesome if we put Southern Comfort in the sauce???

So here is our creation, born from Paula Deen's Gorilla Bread Recipe, and the Food Network's Toffee Sauce. :)

The pumpkin and cream cheese center give this gorilla bread great pumpkin flavor. It's the perfect treat for a fall afternoon. And the toffee sauce is delicious! In fact, I can't wait to try it on some ice cream. I can't wait to make this easy gorilla bread recipe again. The Test Kitchen

How to Make Pumpkin Gorilla Bread with SoCo Toffee Sauce


  • 1Melt 1 stick of butter and 1 cup of brown sugar in a small pot under low heat.

  • 2Stir together the white sugar and the cinnamon. Set aside.
  • 3Open up the cream cheese, and cut into 16 evenly sized cubes.
  • 4Next, open up the cans of biscuits, and flatten each biscuit to about 1/2 inch. Place one cube of cream cheese, a dollop of pumpkin, and a sprinkle of cinnamon sugar in the center of each flattened biscuit. Now seal up each biscuit to make individual dumplings.
  • 5Now, spray a bundt pan with non-stick cooking spray. Pour 1/3 of the melted butter/brown sugar into the bottom of the bundt pan.
  • 6Next, place 1/2 of the pumpkin/cream cheese/biscuit dumplings into the pan. Sprinkle with cinnamon sugar. Then pour another 1/3 of the melted butter/brown sugar on top of the dumplings.
  • 7Layer the rest of the pumpkin/cream cheese/biscuit dumplings, sprinkle with more cinnamon sugar, then top with the rest of the melted butter/brown sugar.

    Bake in a 350-degree oven for 45 minutes.
  • 8Make the SoCo Toffee Sauce...
    Place all ingredients into a saucepan over medium heat. Stir, bring to a boil. Once it boils, turn the heat down to low. Continue cooking/stirring until it comes together and is smooth and velvety.
  • 9Once the Pumpkin Gorilla Bread is baked, wait 5 minutes and invert onto a serving dish. Serve with warm SoCo Toffee Sauce.

    Be prepared to be asked to make this for every potluck moving forward.
