Monkey Bread (Pull-Apart Cinnamon Bread)

(People were talking left and right about this bread so I had to see what all the hub-bub was about. I found that people were using refrigerated biscuits or Bisquick®…not me. This bread is delicate so that it pulls apart easily, moist, and flavorful!)

1 bag frozen yeast dinner rolls

Cinnamon-Sugar mixture

Melted butter

Confectioner’s Sugar icing


  1. Allow dough to thaw enough to pull apart and mold into smaller balls.
  2. Pre-heat oven according to package directions for dinner rolls. And grease 9×13 baking pan.
  3. Pull apart each dough ball and shape into 4 smaller balls.
  4. Roll balls in cinnamon-sugar mixture. It’s easier to add your cinnamon/sugar mixture to a ziplock bag, drop in your dough balls and toss to coat.
  5. Completely cover bottom of baking pan with balls of dough. Brush lightly with melted butter. Add your next layer and continue with dough and melted butter. Get them close together; but not tight. Finish by sprinkling the cinnamon/sugar mixture over the top.
  6. Bake for about 15-20 minutes. When almost cooled, drizzle with your favorite icing recipe. The more layers you add; the longer it will take to bake.
