Your Whole Family Will Love This Blueberry Monkey Bread Recipe

Monkey bread is exceptionally popular, especially with families that have children. Kids love being able to eat food with their hands, which is why monkey bread is such a hit. They can pull as many pieces off as they'd like, without getting scolded by their parents!

Blueberry monkey bread may not be a child's flavor of choice, but it's a great way to use fresh blueberries. When blueberries are in season, it's a great idea to pick some up for your family. They're excellent when eaten on their own, but when used in this monkey bread recipe you'll get something that's truly special.

If you've never made monkey bread before, it isn't very hard. You'll need a tube pan, so go ahead and get one that's appropriately sized for this recipe if you don't have one already. You'll be using refrigerated buttermilk biscuit dough for this recipe, along with carefully selected spices, vanilla extract, sugar, butter, and, of course, blueberries.

Since your kids will more than likely be indulging in this treat, why not have them give you a hand making it? They'll appreciate food more if they played a part in making it. Plus, you can teach them important kitchen skills that they'll need as adults. It's never too late to teach your kids how to cook!

Blueberry Monkey Bread


1 1/3 cups white sugar, divided into two 2/3 cup measures
1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
4 (10 ounce) cans refrigerated buttermilk biscuit dough
1 1/4 cups fresh blueberries
10 Tablespoons butter
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
1 cup fresh blueberries



1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Thoroughly grease a 10 x 4 inch tube pan.

2. Mix 2/3 cup sugar and cinnamon. Cut biscuits in quarters, then roll each piece in sugar-cinnamon mixture.

3. Arrange about 1/4 of the biscuit pieces and blueberries in an even layer in pan.

4. Place blueberries between biscuit pieces, creating a mosaic effect. Repeat three times with remaining biscuits and blueberries, covering blueberries of one layer with biscuits in next layer.

5. In saucepan combine the second 2/3 cup sugar, butter, vanilla, cinnamon, and the additional cup of blueberries. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat. Cook, stirring frequently until sugar is dissolved and butter is melted.

6. Pour over biscuits in pan.

7. Bake for 35 minutes or until done. Lift or turn out onto a cake plate.
