Cream Cheese Monkey Bread- Tried it, LOVED it!

I saw this recipe on Pinterest and had to try it! My sister-in-law, Abi, and I went right to work that night to put together this masterpiece. The house smelled fantastic. 

This recipe below is directly from the original link, and honestly, I wouldn't change anything about it. I loved it! This is definitely one to try next time you are craving something sweet.

2/3 cup dark brown sugar
2/3 cup granulated sugar
1 tablespoon cinnamon
Two 12-ounce tubes refrigerated flaky buttermilk biscuits
One 8-ounce package cream cheese, cut into 20 cubes
¾ cup butter, melted
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Spray a 12-cup bundt pan with cooking spray; set aside. In
a medium bowl, combine the sugars and cinnamon; set aside.
2. Slice 10 discs of dough from each tube of biscuits. Set discs on a flat surface and set one
cube of cream cheese in the center of each piece of dough. Wrap edges of dough up and
around the cheese so all that is visible is the top side of cream cheese cube. Place 10
dough-wrapped cheese cubes, cheese-side-up, in bottom of prepared pan. Top with half of
the sugar mixture and half of the butter. Top with the remaining dough-wrapped cheese
cubes, cheese-side-down, the remaining sugar and remaining butter.
3. Bake in the preheated oven for 40 minutes. Invert onto a serving platter and serve.



  1. This looks phenomenal! I love to make money bread, but I may need to try this one!

    1. It's SO good. I cannot say enough good about it. That extra step of adding cream cheese is just the ultimate! :)

  2. Anna, i think we should have put more cream cheese in the middle. I was looking back at the pinterest recipe and they definitely did a bigger square than what I put in

  3. how long can this set out at room temp?
