Ingredients

  • 1 cup pecans roughly chopped
  • 2 cans pre-made biscuit dough
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 Tbsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup pure maple syrup
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 Tbsp heavy cream or half & half

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees, and grease a bundt cake pan. 
  • Sprinkle 1/2 cup of pecans into the bottom of the bundt pan. Set aside. 
  • Cut each biscuit into fourths, and roll each piece into a ball. 
  • Mix sugar and cinnamon together. Roll each dough ball in the cinnamon sugar mixture, and place inside the bundt pan. 
  • Sprinkle the remaining 1/2 cup of pecans over the dough. Set aside. 
  • In a medium saucepan over med-low heat, melt butter, brown sugar, vanilla extract, and maple syrup together, stirring occasionally. 
  • Once everything is combined, bring the mixture to a boil over med-low heat, stirring constantly. Remove from the heat, and whisk in heavy cream or half and half. Allow the sauce to sit for a couple of minutes, then pour the mixture over the dough. 
  • Bake for 25 minutes, then cover with foil (this keeps the bread from browning too much), and bake for 5-6 more minutes. 
  • Allow the monkey bread to cool for about 10 minutes. Then, turn upside down onto a plate. Serve warm, and if desired, sprinkle more chopped pecans on top. 
  • Enjoy!
