A: Yes! You can assemble the apple cinnamon monkey bread in advance and refrigerate it overnight. Just cover the pan tightly with plastic wrap and bake it in the morning. The result will be a fresh and flavorful treat with minimal effort.

Q: Can I freeze the leftovers?

Tips and Tricks:

  1. Coating the biscuit pieces: Make sure to fully coat each biscuit piece in the cinnamon sugar mixture for maximum flavor and caramelization.

  2. Mixing the caramelized apples: Stir the cooked diced apples gently to avoid breaking them apart, ensuring a nice distribution of apple goodness throughout the monkey bread.

  3. Serving warm: This apple cinnamon monkey bread is best enjoyed warm. If reheating, wrap it in foil and warm it in the oven at 350°F (175°C) for a few minutes.


  • Apple Fritter Monkey Bread: For an apple fritter twist, dip the biscuit pieces into a mixture of diced apples, cinnamon, and brown sugar before layering them in the pan. Drizzle with glaze made from powdered sugar, milk, and vanilla for a delightful finish.

  • Caramel Apple Monkey Bread: Drizzle caramel sauce over the layers of biscuit pieces and apples before baking. The result is a gooey and irresistible caramel apple flavor in every bite.
