  • Preheat oven to 350°F and grease a bundt pan well. Place the bundt pan on a baking sheet.
  • In a gallon zip top bag, mix together the sugar and cinnamon. Give it a good shake.
  • Cut the biscuits into quarters and place in gallon bag with sugar mix. Gently mix together until all the dough pieces are coated in the sugar mix. Do one can at a time so they don't stick together.
  • Place the dough pieces into the greased bundt pan evenly. Gently pat the dough down.
  • In a small saucepan, melt together butter and brown sugar until the brown sugar is completely dissolved and the mixture just starts to bubble. DO NOT BOIL!
  • Remove from heat and stir in vanilla extract.
  • Pour sauce over the dough pieces. Gently tap the bundt pan a few times on the baking sheet.
  • Bake the monkey bread for 50-60 minutes until the top is a deep golden brown and the biscuits are no longer doughy. I use a chopstick to check the middle of the dough.
  • Let cool at least 15 minutes before turning pan over on the baking sheet, plate or cake stand.
  • Serve and Enjoy!
