Monkey Bread (small version)

Happy Labor Day!  I'm enjoying some leftover Monkey Bread from my brunch last weekend.

I love my mini cake pedestal that I received from Linda at Life and Linda last year.  It's the perfect size for small versions.  My small bundt pan cakes fit on it perfectly.  The pretty crocheted cloth was one of my late mom's. 

This Polka Rose teacup came from the 100 year collection of Royal Albert that my youngest son and daughter-in-law gave me.

This  cutie pie polka dot vase was one that my daughter gave me.  She makes me smile, both my daughter and the vase.


At my fitness club, they had a zumba party for us this past week.  it was such fun, and they provided the leis, the sun glasses, and food and drinks afterwards.  

My granddaughter, Avery, is here about to hit the volleyball.  They won!  She plays libero, and that's why she's in a different colored shirt.

Cissy was named cheerleader of the week, and has on a special sash.  

My daughter and Cissy decorated Caiden's locker for his football game.

Monkey Bread (small version)

Monkey Bread (small version)

I figured out a way to make a smaller version of Monkey Bread to fit in my small bundt pan, without having lots of leftovers.


  • 2-7.5 oz cans or 1-16 oz can of biscuits
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup butter, melted


  1. Spray a small bundt pan with cooking spray.
  2. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  3. Cut the biscuits into quarters.
  4. Mix the sugar and cinnamon in a bag
  5. Place several pieces of biscuits into the bag and shake to coat all sides; continue until all the pieces are coated.
  6. Place the pieces into the bundt pan.
  7. Mix the brown sugar into the melted butter and stir well.
  8. Pour over the biscuit pieces in the bundt pan.
  9. Bake for 25-30 minutes. Cool in pan for 5 minutes and then invert onto your serving platter or dish.
  10. Serve warm.


You could also do this recipe in a bread pan, or muffin tins, adjusting the time.

Leftovers keep for a few days; just reheat in the microwave.

Thank you for your visit!  xo


  1. That's what I need—the smaller version. Wonderful photos of the grands doing their thing!

  2. Oh yum, Kitty! Portion control too, lol. Love seeing you and you family living life to its fullest. Happy Labor Day!

  3. What a great recipe! I LOVE the delicate teacup first on your list of pretties...and the family pictures are awesome! Lovely post once again. =D XO

  4. Looks delicious, you and your friends and family so happy - and always enjoy seeing what your grands are up to with their many hobbies and interests. Love your small pedestal cake stand - it's perfect to display things too - love those sizes. And amen to smaller sizes of anything fattening, haha. Big hugs.

  5. Love the polkadot tea set and cake pedestal!

    This is the first time I've heard of monkey bread. Sounds like a tasty treat!

    I initially thought you were going to Hawaii when I saw your Zumba party pic. LOL

  6. I'm all about the smaller versions Kitty! Sounds great for fall:@)

  7. Monkey bread is a favorite of mine, I first tasted it at my DIL's many years ago, thank you for the recipe! Loved the pictures of the grand girls, congratulations to both! Aren't grandchildren the most fun! Thanks for sharing.

  8. Your Monkey Bread looks so yummy with that shiny brown sugar glaze Kitty! Love seeing your family...Cissy is such a pretty girl (young lady!) Happy Labor Day ♥

  9. Kitty, that monkey bread looks so good. I enjoyed looking at the china and your family. Thanks for the recipe and I hope you have a nice week.

  10. I love monkey bread and it looks fabulous in that cute little cake stand you won from me. Love the tea cup. Your sweet little face vase is always a favorite. So glad you are staying active. Zumba looks like fun. Your grands are growing up so fast. Very cute photos.

  11. A smaller Monkey Bread recipe would be perfect! Looks like you had a fun time at the Zumba party!

  12. Beautiful crochet doily! What sweet teacup and delicious recipe. Love those gorgeous photos of your wonderful family. Hugs. Pretty flowers too!

  13. It was so nice to see all the photos of you and your family having so much fun and enjoying life! Zumba looks like so much fun. May the Lord continually bless you, sweet friend.

  14. I have never eaten Monkey Bread! I don't know why! I guess because I've never made it, and no one I know has ever served it at an event. What is WRONG with us?!??!?! I would want to make a smaller version like this one since there are only 2 of us, and one of us who is NOT ME doesn't care for leftovers.🙄

    I tried Zumba some years back. Too fast and furious for my old bones (that was pre-surgery), but it looks like a ton of fun! I have a hard time remembering dance steps, but maybe it's something to try again just for extra exercise. I love my weight training, but I'd welcome something else to augment the cardio part!

    Have a fantabulous weekend!

  15. What a great idea Kitty, I need to get a small bundt pan to make small versions, yummy! Your grands are all so cute and athletic! A Zumba party sounds like fun! Sorry I'm so late, it's been a busy week!

  16. Kitty, it's always a treat to see your grands! They must keep you busy! Love monkey bread, so will give this a try. Thanks!

  17. I love a vase with personality! So cute and so are those girls of yours and your friends at Zumba :) I'd love to find a fun class like that!
