apple pie monkey bread

This ooey, gooey delicious Apple Pie Monkey Bread Recipe is to die for. Ya’ll know I love chocolate, and pretty much only chocolate, when it comes to my desserts. But this apple pie monkey bread has changed my mind. I’ve come over to the dark side!

This apple pie monkey bread recipe is linked up at The Country Cook.

Ingredients

2 cans biscuits (8 count, Grands)
½ cup sugar
1 can apple pie filling
½ cup butter (1 stick), melted
½ cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon
6 tablespoons flour
OPTIONAL: 2 cups caramel chips (like chocolate chips, but caramel – in the baking aisle)

For glaze:

2-3 cups powdered sugar
¼ cup heavy cream

Mix with whisk and drizzle over top of monkey bread.

Directions

Preheat oven to 350 and spray bundt pan with cooking spray. I use the kind that has flour in it, because sometimes these monkey breads can get sticky – especially with caramel involved! The last thing you want is to have it stick to your pan. Warning: licking a hot bundt pan… not a great idea. I mean, someone told me it wasn’t… ;)

Cut biscuits into quarters.

Pour apple pie filling into a bowl. Cut apple pieces up into thirds or fourths… basically bite-sized pieces. Add in 6 tablespoons flour, 1 teaspoon cinnamon, 4 tablespoons melted butter, and sugars. Mix well.

Dip biscuit pieces into apple pie filling, then place into bundt pan. After half of the biscuits are in the pan, drizzle the mixture with ½ of the remaining butter. Add in ½ cup caramel chips if you’re using them. If you have a lot of apple pie filling left at this point, take about half of it and add it to the top of the biscuits and butter.

Continue dipping biscuit pieces in the apple pie filling. Place the other half of the biscuits into the bundt pan, drizzle with the other half of the butter, sprinkle in ½ cup caramel chips, and top with remaining apple pie filling mixture.

Bake for about 35 minutes ON A COOKIE SHEET. Yes, put the bundt pan on a cookie sheet. If not, the butter might boil over and start a fire in your oven. Don’t ask me how I know this.

Edges will be dark brown and center will be lighter. Just make sure the middle isn’t gooey. It’ll still cook a little after you take it out of the oven.

Let cool for 10 minutes, but not much longer than that or it will stick to your pan. If for some reason you forget about it and it does stick, heat it up for about 10 minutes in a warm oven and it should unstick fairly easily.

While monkey bread is cooling, if you’re using the caramel, melt caramel chips in a bowl (you can add a little coconut oil or butter to help the process along but it’s not necessary) in the microwave. Also, make powdered sugar glaze if you haven’t already.

Place a large plate over the bundt pan and flip over.
