Want The Perfect Fall Dessert? You Have To Make This Recipe

  • monkey bread

Every year, my friend hosts and apple picking party at her home during the first weekend of October, to celebrate the Autumn season that has arrives. I always pick a big basket full of apples, take them home, and make my Cinnamon Apple Monkey Bread.

I always bring it over to my friend’s house the next weekend, as a thank you for letting me pick her apples. The smells that fill my kitchen when I bake this dessert are so fragrant, and it’s the perfect way to welcome in the new season. You have got to try this recipe for yourself, and you’ll cry when you wonder why you’ve never had it before!



(3) cans regular size homestyle biscuits

20oz can apple pie filling

2 tbsp butter

¼ cup brown sugar

¼ cup granulated sugar

1 tbsp flour

½ tsp cinnamon

¼ tsp salt

¼ tsp nutmeg

Icing Drizzle

1 cup powdered sugar

¼ tsp cinnamon

¼ tsp vanilla extract

4 tbsp milk

Optional Crumb Topping

¾ cup all purpose flour

½ packed light brown sugar

½ tsp ground cinnamon

¼ cup butter or margarine, melted



Preheat the oven to 350°F.

Pour the apple pie filling into a bowl and use a knife to dice the apples into small pieces.

Add in the sugars, flour, cinnamon, salt, nutmeg, and butter into the apple pie filling mixture.

Cut each biscuit into quarters, or smaller if you used the large biscuits.

In a large bowl, mix together the apple mixture along with the biscuits.

Generously spray a bundt pan, coating all sides, and pour the mixture into your pan.

Bake for 45 minutes, until bread is all the way cooked through.

Remove from oven and quickly turn your pan to remove your bread. Do this while it is still hot! You don’t want all of the gooey goodness to seep to the bottom of your pan.

Now you can do the optional crumb topping! Mix together the crumb topping ingredients and sprinkle all over the top of your monkey bread.

Stick it into the oven for another 5 minutes or so, just long enough to make it the topping crunchy.

Top with the icing glaze drizzle.

Serve & enjoy!



Quick Tip: Sift the powdered sugar in the icing glaze when mixing the ingredients.

    What is the amount of butter that the instructions say to admit apple pie filling. There’S no butter listed in the ingredients except optional crumb topping.
