  • Preheat the oven to 350°F.
  • Generously spray a Bundt pan (or angel food cake pan) with cooking oil. Set aside.
  • In a small bowl, mix together the ground cinnamon and granulated sugar. Set the bowl aside.
  • Open the rolls of refrigerated biscuit dough. Remove the dough and separate the individual biscuits. Cut each biscuit into 4 pieces.
    Roll one piece at a time in the sugar mixture to coat, and place in the prepared Bundt pan.
  • In a medium saucepan, melt the butter and stir in the brown sugar. Whisk continuously until the sugar is completely dissolved.
  • Pour the butter mixture evenly over the biscuit dough in the Bundt pan.
  • Place the Bundt pan into the preheated oven and bake for 40 minutes, or until the center of the monkey bread registers at 190°F on an Instant-Read thermometer.
  • Allow the monkey bread to cool slightly. Then place an oven-safe plate over the Bundt pan. Using two oven mitts, to prevent burns, carefully flip the pan and plate over together.
  • Gently lift the pan, leaving the monkey bread on the plate. Serve warm and enjoy!
