Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp pumpkin pie spice
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1/3 cup half and half or heavy whipping cream
  • Pumpkin icing that comes in the package
  • Powdered sugar (optional)

Instructions:

  1. Preheat Your Oven

Before diving into the deliciousness, preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C) and grease a Bundt pan to ensure your monkey bread doesn’t stick.

  1. Prepare the Cinnamon Sugar Mixture

In a medium-sized bowl, combine the melted butter with brown sugar, ground cinnamon and vanilla. Flavor further with pumpkin pie spice. This sweet and spicy blend will add a burst of flavor to each layer of your monkey bread.

  1. Create Monkey Bread Balls

Unroll the Pillsbury Pumpkin Cinnamon Rolls and cut each roll into quarters.

  1. Prepare bunt pan

Spray bunt pan of choice with PAM cake spray or any nonstick spray of choice for baking

  1. Layering in the Pan

Place the coated dough balls into the greased Bundt pan. Between each layer drizzle cinnamon sugar butter mixture on the dough. For the last layer, pour half and half then cover tightly with foil.

  1. Bake to Perfection

Pop the covered bundt pan into the preheated oven and let your Pumpkin Spice Monkey Bread bake for 35-40 minutes, or until the top is golden brown and it’s doubled in size.

  1. Glaze it Up

While the monkey bread is baking, use the provided icing from the Pillsbury Pumpkin Cinnamon Rolls to whip up a quick glaze. After 10 minutes, release the monkey bread from the bunt pan and drizzle glaze over the warm monkey bread, allowing the glaze to seep into every nook and cranny.

  1. Serve and Savor

Allow the monkey bread to cool for a few minutes before carefully turning it out onto a serving plate. The warm, sticky, and pumpkin-spiced aroma will surely entice everyone in the vicinity.
