Bacon and Maple Monkey Bread

Confession time: I’ve never had monkey bread. How has this happened? My SO actually just requested some monkey bread the other day. I think he was just thinking the cinnamon sugar kind, but I know that he loves both maple and bacon. Sooooo, maybe I’ll treat him to some bacon and maple monkey bread.

This would be such a great dessert or breakfast. What a lovely birthday breakfast this would be! 

This monkey bread is going to be so rich and luscious. Those pecans paired with bacon, and then in all that maple flavor? Oh my heavens! How amazing. Again, this would be a great recipe to share at a potluck or a family function.

  • ½ cup real maple syrup
  • 4 tbsp. butter
  • ⅔ cup packed light brown sugar
  • ½ cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 12 oz. bacon, cooked and crumbled
  • ½ cup chopped pecans
  • 3 tubes (7.5 oz. each) refrigerated biscuits, cut each biscuit into quarters


Preheat oven to 450°F. Grease a 9×13-inch baking dish or spray with cooking spray and set aside.
2. In a medium saucepan over medium-low heat, cook the maple syrup and butter until the butter is melted. Add the brown sugar. Stir until well combined. Slowly add the flour, whisking well between each addition until all of the flour has been added. Remove sauce from heat and add the vanilla. Pour sauce into the prepared pan.
3. Sprinkle the cooked and crumbled bacon evenly over the top of the sauce in the baking dish. Sprinkle pecans evenly over the top. Top with quartered biscuits.
4. Bake for 15-17 minutes or until the biscuits are cooked through and golden brown and the sauce is bubbly.
5. Remove from the oven. Cover with serving dish. Quickly and carefully invert the biscuits out onto the serving dish. While the sauce is still hot, scrape any sauce still in the baking dish out over the biscuits.
6. Serve immediately.
