Chai Spiced Monkey Bread Recipe

  • Chai Spiced Monkey Bread

    Impress your guests with this yummy, pull-apart, melt-in-your-mouth bread!

    Servings: 6-8


    • refrigerated large/jumbo size biscuit dough: 2 cans
    • brown sugar: ¾ cup
    • unsalted butter: 1 stick
    • salt: ¼ teaspoon
    • Chai spices, divided: 1 teaspoon
    • confectioner's sugar: ½ cup
    • milk: 1 tablespoon (approx.)


    Step 1: Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 9-inch springform pan, wrap the outside of the pan in foil, and set it onto a baking sheet. (This will prevent drips.)

    Step 2: Separate each biscuit and cut them into quarters.  


    Step 3: In a small saucepan heat butter, brown sugar, and half of the Chai spices until melted.


    Step 4: Arrange half of the biscuit pieces at the bottom of the prepared springform pan. Pour half of the butter/sugar sauce over the biscuits. Top with remaining biscuits and remaining butter/sugar sauce. 


    Step 5: Place springform pan onto a rimmed baking sheet (to catch any drips and make removing pan from the oven easier).

    Step 6: While bread is baking, make the sauce: In a small bowl whisk together confectioner's sugar, salt, and remaining half of the Chai spices. Stir in milk and whisk until it looks like a smooth glaze. Add a tiny bit more milk if necessary, but don't overdo it or your glaze will be too runny. Pour glaze over the top of cooled monkey bread. Run a sharp knife around the edge of the bread and un-mold.
