I think when I made this last week there were only 2 reviews. There is no way that you can make this with 4 regular sized cans and a 6 cup Bundt pan! I used a 12 cup Bundt pan and all but 5 biscuits from 4 of the large cans and had PLENTY. The very middle wasn't done and I guess I could have baked it another minute or two, but I ran out of sugar and pumpkin pie spice to shake the biscuits in so some of them were lighter in color and flavor. Otherwise...VERY good. My boyfriend's daughter (7) helped make it. *it does take a while to cut that many biscuits into 4 pieces too

Wish I had read the reviews before I made this monkey bread also. Loved the flavor of the pumpkin. Do not see how anyone coated all of the biscuits pieces with only the 1/2 c. sugar and 2 T. spice suggested. After cutting up and coating two cans, I rand oout of the sugar mixture. I also have 3/4 of a can of pumpkin left. :(

I made this for breakfast on Thanksgiving morning. it was simple and delicious! Since the regular packages of Pillsbury biscuit dough now have 10 biscuits, not 8, I only used 3 cans, not 4. And to help save some time, I only cut the biscuits in half not in quarters (made much easier using kitchen sheers). This was delicious and easy and I really look forward to making it again!

I wish I would have read the reviews before making this. I think Pillsbury should edit their recipe to say 2 cans of biscuts or say a larger pan. I had biscut pieces all over the place while baking, luckily I put a pan underneath the bundt pan to catch them. Other than that this was REALLY DELICIOUS!

I followed the directions and have to agree 2 cans of the Grands bisciuts is probably a better idea. I tried using all four cans and it was a mess. I put some of the pieces in a smaller dish. The main bundt pan was filled and it over flowed and didn't cook competely either. I will have to try it again and see how it works with 2 cans

I followed the directions exactly. After three or four batches of biscuit pieces in the baggie, I ran out of spice and there was only sugar left so I had to add more spice. Bundt pan was VERY full with that many biscuit pieces and while cooking, it did overflow into my oven, and did not cook through in the middle. I would only use 2 packages of biscuits. But everyone who got outer pieces to eat found it very delicious.

I would definately make this with only one or two cans of biscuits, the pan was overflowing and the middle did not get cooked at all. Try doing it in a 13x9 pan so it can spread out and hopefully all cook together. It also didn't have enough of a pumpkin taste to it.

I made this for a small group of people, so I only used one can of biscuits and halved everything else (which meant I had leftover sauce). I used a round casserole dish that was large enough to accommodate the rising biscuits. This was super easy, really quick, and delicious! I'll definitely make again!

Not sure what I missed or did...but an absolute disaster!!! Used angel food cake pan - stuff oozed over edges onto the bottom of stove; had to put pan on baking sheet. Pieces fell off. Once "done" & cooled, middle of bread not cooked & yes, the temp in the oven was correct. Also, did not have enough coating mixture. Does the recipe really need 4 full sized cans of biscuits? Able to eat the outside of the bread, threw the rest away.

I saw this recipe and thought it looked yummy and wanted to take it as a passing dish to my family's Thanksgiving get together. I did a "test run" last night and my husband had two helpings, and commented on how good it was with every bite. I thought about adding more of the pumpkin-caramel sauce, it's so smooth and creamy, but I think I will leave the recipe as it is, and just make more sauce and put it in a dish right in the center of the monkey bread with a small ladle. It is a rich tasting dish, but if you watch your portions it's really good. Fantastic!!!!!
