Get Oprah's Delicious Monkey Bread Recipe here!

Gooey Monkey Bread
Everyone loves Monkey Bread. Although it lives a tinge of guilt along with its ooey gooey goodness, we love to eat it regardless.

There are many recipes available for this delectable dish, but the one that's got the world buzzing right now is the one featured on the Oprah Winfrey show.

It was recapped in the episode shown today, and it hasn't gotten any less delicious. We've managed to get the exact recipe shown on the show! It took a while to get the details since the episode the recipe was shown on, but we've managed to get it regardless. Click below and read on to get the recipe!

Before we show Oprah's delicious Monkey Bread recipe, we'll go ahead and give you the typical recipe we came across on the Internet:

  • 1 Cup Sugar
  • 1 Tbsp. Cinnamon
  • 4 Cans of refrigerator biscuit dough
  • 1/2 Cup butter
  • Optional: Chopped pecans or raisins
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Grease or butter the inside of a bundt pan or tube pan.
  3. Combine cinnamon and sugar in a large Ziploc bag or a bowl with a tight lid.
  4. Break each of the raw biscuits into 3-4 pieces and drop in the cinnamon/sugar mixture a few at a time. Seal the bag or bowl and shake to coat all pieces. Drop the coated dough into the pan.
  5. If you’re using nuts or raisins, sprinkle them evenly around the pan after about half of the dough is in.
  6. When all of the biscuits are coated and in the pan, melt the butter in a saucepan. Add the remaining cinnamon/sugar mixture and bring to a boil, stirring frequently.
  7. Pour the cinnamon/sugar/butter “syrup” evenly over the dough in the pan.
  8. Bake for 30-40 minutes. The top should be slightly crunchy and the biscuits should be done.
  9. Let sit in the pan for a few minutes to cool, then carefully turn out onto a cake plate. Be very careful as any “syrup” that drips out of the pan will be VERY hot and VERY sticky.
While this recipe is decent, it's not anywhere close to the Monkey Bread that we made using Oprah's recipe. Here's her recipe as found on Oprah:
  • 3 packages buttermilk biscuit tubes
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1 cup (2 sticks) butter
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • Pinch of salt
Cut each roll of buttermilk biscuit tubes into 4 pieces. Drop roll pieces into sugar and cinnamon. Drop sugar-coated pieces into a well-buttered Bundt pan.

Put 1/2 cup of the leftover sugar/cinnamon mix, brown sugar and butter into a small saucepan. Bring mixture just to a boil; remove from heat immediately. Drizzle over the roll pieces.

Bake at 350° for 30 minutes.

Cool slightly, then tip over onto a plate to remove from pan. 
Test them both out and tell us how they are!
