I have a major crush on all things monkey bread. It’s sweet, sticky and crazy indulgent. I remember the first time my stepmom made monkey bread. I was all “ummm how is something delicious going to come out of biscuits from a can?” Yeah, I should have never questioned her because hot damn monkey bread is pretty much a gift from the sugar glazed gods. I wasn’t even sure how to categorize this thing. Is it breakfast? Is it dessert? Is it bread? Is it a cake? I finally settled on calling it a dessert BUT I’m 100% on board with eating this for freaking too.

I would even be ok with putting an egg on top of this pumpkin spice apple monkey bread and calling it a balanced meal.

Well, balanced-ish meal. #putaneggonit

I also happen to think this monkey bread is crazy easy to make. I know it starts with store-bought biscuits but I’m not even sorry. It’s worth it. If you judge me over biscuits we cannot be friends. You would also probably judge for me the fact that I love the following items:

  • cheez-its
  • nuggets with sweet and sour sauce
  • tuna noodle casserole
  • watching insane amounts of court tv
  • loving Maury Povich and all his paternity test needing guests

I guess what I’m trying to say is that I’m a hot mess and you should all just accept me as I am. Also, anytime someone wants to get together to watch The People’s Court followed up by a few episodes of Maury all while eating cheez-its I’m 100% down.

Let’s make a playdate.

Now if you’re not sure what monkey bread is I’m about to make your life a billion times better. It’s basically bread mixed with sugar and lots of spice. Traditionally it’s just cinnamon BUT this time I opted to use pumpkin spice (which is a combination of ALL my favorite fall spices) and I tossed in these awesome diced dried apple pieces from Bob’s Red Mill. Which are basically just little tiny bits of unsweetened dried apple that can be thrown in without adding a ton of moisture BUT still giving you that awesome apple flavor.

So, whether you want to eat this pumpkin spice apple monkey bread for breakfast OR dessert I won’t judge you. I may or may not have eaten it for breakfast, lunch, dinner and dessert.

Yield: 6 servings

Prep Time: 20 minutes

Cook Time: 35 minutes

Total Time: 55 minutes

Ingredients:

For bread:

  • 4 (10 count) small buttermilk biscuits
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice
  • 1/3 cup diced dried apple bits
  • 2 cups brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter

For glaze:

  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
  • 1-2 tablespoons half and half

Directions:

For bread:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees and spray a nonstick 9-inch bundt pan with nonstick spray, set aside.

Open your biscuits and cut each biscuit into 4 pieces.

In a ziptop bag (or bowl) add granulated sugar and 2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice. Mix together to combine.

Coat each piece of the cut biscuit in the sugar mixture by either add it to a ziptop bag and shaking or coat in a bowl. As you coat your pieces add them to the prepared bundt pan. Sprinkle the apple bits through the bread as you add more biscuits. Make sure to evenly distribute the rolled biscuits and when done rolling the pan should be about ¾ full.

In a small pot or saucepan add brown sugar and unsalted butter. Once fully melted let the mixture boil for 1 minute.

Pour the hot brown sugar mixture over top the biscuits in the pan. Try to evenly coat al the biscuits.

Bake for about 30-35 minutes or until the mixture is browned and the biscuits are fully cooked.

Let the bread cool for 10 minutes and then flip out onto a serving platter.

Drizzle with glaze and serve warm or room temperature.

For glaze:
Add all ingredients to a small bowl and whisk until you reach your desired thickness. If the glaze it too thin add more powdered sugar if it’s too thick add a little more half and half.
