Comfort, fast and easy…not sure why though…I usually like to try and make more complicated things…but I guess I’m a pretty simple gal…


One of the most deliciously fun things to make is Monkey Bread! Roll up some Pillsbury biscuit dough, roll it in cinnamon and sugar, stuff into a loaf pan helter skelter and pour over melted butter and bake! easy peasy lemon squeezy!

What I never understood though…is why is it called MONKEY bread? So I added my own little tweak to it! I stuffed each biscuit with banana cream cheese! yummmm~

Thanks to my yujs for helping make this and helping to enjoy it as well~<3

Banana Cream Cheese Monkey Bread
Makes: 2 small monkey bread loaves

2 bananas, mashed
1 8oz pack of cream cheese
1 orange, zested and juiced
1/4 C Brown Sugar
1 stick butter, melted
4 containers of pillbury biscuit dough
1/2 TSP Ground Cinnamon
1/4 TSP Ground Cardamom
1/4 TSP Salt
1/4 C Sugar
1/4 TSP Vanilla Extract

1. Mash Bananas, Sugar, Orange Zest, and Cream Cheese together in a bowl until smooth. Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.

2. In a separate bowl, whisk together Brown Sugar, Orange Juice, Ground Cinnamon, Ground Cardamom, Vanilla Extract and Melted Butter until brown sugar is dissolved.

3. Stretch a biscuit out a little and place a spoonful of banana cream cheese mixture into middle.

4. Seal in the cream cheese as best you can (*sorry didn’t refrigerate when I first tried this so the little dumplings kept popping open) and place into a loaf pan.

. Pour over wet mixture evenly into each pan.

6. Bake at 350F until golden brown on top and toothpick comes out clean ~30minutes.

added a little bit of Nutella decadence to this loaf…MmMMmm~
