Is it dessert or breakfast? This Easy Cinnamon Roll Monkey Bread is easy to make with only 10 minutes prep and tastes amazing!


Units Scale
  • 3 packages Pillsbury Grands Cinnamon Rolls with frosting
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 tbsp cinnamon
  • 1 stick butter
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 2 tbsp maple syrup


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Generously spray a bundt pan with nonstick spray.
  2. Divide each of the premade cinnamon rolls into two and roll each half into a ball.
  3. Toss those dough balls into a gallon plastic bag as you make them.
  4. When you're finished, pour 1 cup of sugar mixed with 1 tablespoon of cinnamon into the bag, close it and shake it up to coat the dough.
  5. Place the coated dough balls into a greased bundt pan.
  6. In a bowl, microwave 1 stick of butter, 1/2 cup brown sugar, and 2 tablespoons of maple sugar for one minute.
  7. Stir until uniform and pour over the dough mixture.
  8. Bake for 30-35 minutes or until the inner dough is baked through and the outside is a deep golden brown.
  9. Allow to cool five minutes before inverting onto a plate and topping with frosting.


Allow the monkey bread to cool for 5 minutes before inverting but don't allow it to cool too long as the syrup will harden in the pan and make it difficult to remove.
