Hide Images
  • 1
    Heat oven to 350° F. Grease 12-cup fluted tube cake pan with shortening or cooking spray.
  • 2
    Cut each block of cream cheese in half lengthwise, then cut each half in 4 rows by 3 rows to form 12 equal cubes (24 cubes per block).
  • 3
    Set aside icing from cinnamon rolls. Separate each can of dough into 5 rolls; unroll each roll, and cut each in half.
  • 4
    Take one section of dough and fold it over to form a rectangle shape. Place a square of cream cheese on the dough; fold over the dough, and gently crimp it around the cream cheese. Repeat with remaining dough pieces (you will have four leftover pieces of cream cheese).
  • 5
    Place cream cheese-filled dough balls in pan. Place butter pieces evenly on top.
  • 6
    Bake 40 to 45 minutes or until deep golden brown on top. Cool 10 minutes; run knife around edge of pan to loosen. Place heatproof serving plate over pan and turn over; remove pan. Cool 10 minutes.
  • 7
    Drizzle reserved icing over top of bread, allowing some to drizzle down sides. Pull apart to serve; serve warm.

Expert Tips

  • Store any leftover monkey bread covered in the refrigerator.
  • For an even sweeter monkey bread, roll each cube of cream cheese in brown sugar before rolling into dough.
  • Stir the leftover cubes of cream cheese into the icing until smooth before drizzling over the monkey bread for even more cream cheese flavor.
