Monkey bread is essentially a sweet sticky pastry bread, made with soft baked dough. Gigi shared a 6-step recipe for gooey monkey bread made with buttermilk dough, which is basically an even mixture of flour, baking powder, sugar, baking soda, butter and salt. This mixture needs to be refrigerated if you want to re-use it. Here’s all that you need for Gigi’s monkey bread recipe:



  • Buttermilk dough

  • 2 cups white sugar

  • -3 teaspoons of cinnamon

  • 2 sticks of butter

  • ½ cup of brown sugar

  • Cut around 24 ounces of buttermilk dough into small, fan-shaped pieces and place them in a greased pan

  • Mix white sugar with cinnamon and cover the dough bites in the mixture

  • In a separate pan, blend butter, the sugar-cinnamon mixture and ½ cup of brown sugar

  • Bring it to a boil and wait until the sugar dissolves. Also preheat your oven to 350 degrees

  • Pour over the cooked gravy over the dough biscuits

  • Now put it in the oven for 30 minutes at 350 degrees. Use more cinnamon sprinkles for the topping once you take it out
