Lemon Monkey Bread How-To
This citrusy springtime monkey bread is sure to brighten your day.
One of my favorite sweets to make for big family breakfasts or brunches is monkey bread. Traditional cinnamon- and raisin-filled monkey breads are fine, but I wanted a lighter flavor for spring...something that would be a different yet still a welcome addition to my table.
When I think of springtime sweet treats, I always think of citrus, so I decided to make a sticky, gooey Lemon Monkey Bread. To make this recipe really easy, I used pre-packaged lemon pudding mix combined with fresh lemon zest for extra flavor. Then I finished off the monkey bread with a light lemon glaze.
This monkey bread is simple to make. You can have it ready for your family in less than an hour. To save time, you could also assemble it the night before, store in the refrigerator and bake the next morning.
We start with two tubes of Pillsbury® Grands!® Flaky Layers Butter Tastin’ biscuits and ¾ cup melted butter.
