If you love monkey bread and you love pecan pie, I have an INCREDIBLY DELICIOUS treat for you!! This is a MUST-MAKE! I use Pillsbury Grands! Biscuits for this recipe.

Serves: 10-12
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 2 cups pecan halves
  • 2 cans giant refrigerated biscuits
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1 1/4 cups brown sugar
  • 3/4 cup light corn syrup
  • 2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 eggs
  • vanilla ice cream for serving (optional)
  1. Make the monkey bread: Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Spray a 12-cup bundt pan with cooking spray. In gallon-size zip-top bag, combine the sugar, cinnamon, and pecans. Cut each refrigerated biscuit into quarters, adding all of the pieces into the zip-top bag. Seal it and shake to fully coat the pieces. Pour the contents of the bag into the prepared pan.
  2. Make the pecan pie filling: Melt the butter in a small saucepan over medium heat. Add the brown sugar and whisk until smooth. Remove from the heat and whisk in the corn syrup, vanilla, and salt. Lightly beat the eggs in a measuring cup before whisking them into the corn syrup mixture. Pour the mixture over the biscuit pieces in the prepared pan.
  3. Bake 42-45 minutes, covering around 35 minutes in so the top doesn’t get too dark. Cool in the pan 10 minutes. Invert onto a serving plate (I prefer a rimmed one to catch the brown sugar glaze) and pull apart to serve. Serve warm over vanilla ice cream.

    This recipe looks totally yum and I’m glad Byrd got a chance to visit dog beach! It’s the social event of San Diego (dogwise) and happens to be right in my neck of the woods here in OB (I am an Obecian, that is what we call ourselves). I’m delighted to see you enjoyed your visit to my hood.

    What a delicious combination! I am assuming the refrigerated biscuit dough is like a scone dough – not yeasted? We can’t buy that here so just thinking of how to improvise.

      Yes, but you can use yeasted dough too. In fact, most recipes for monkey bread from scratch do so. Either way you try, I hope you enjoy!!

    The video is adorable! I wish I had a dog beach to take my doggies too. I have a feeling, it would be the happiest place on earth!
