Making homemade monkey bread from scratch is quick with this easy recipe! No cans and no yeast needed!
I love monkey bread, but I don’t love bread dough from a can. After many attempts, I finally managed to nail down a homemade monkey bread that is made entirely from scratch – no tubes or cans! This is easy and the kids love to help make it.
I really enjoy a good monkey bread, but I rarely have a tube of biscuits in the house. Finding a quick and easy homemade monkey bread was on my “to make” list for years. The problem I ran into was that most of the homemade monkey bread recipes I found required yeast and needed time to rise. I wanted a recipe that was as quick and easy as using tubed biscuit dough. After many failed attempts, I finally got it right!
This recipe does call for buttermilk, which is almost as rare in my fridge as a tube of biscuits! So instead I usually use yogurt instead of buttermilk. Just thin it out a bit by adding some milk. I use about a cup of vanilla yogurt and add a 1/4 cup of milk to thin it a tad and works great! You could probably also use sour cream or Greek yogurt. I use a Bundt pan for my monkey bread unless I’m making it into muffins.
