  • 1
    Heat oven to 350°F. Generously spray 12-cup fluted tube cake pan with cooking spray.
  • 2
    In large bowl, stir together brown sugar, lemon peel and pudding mix.
  • 3
    Separate both cans of dough into 16 biscuits. Cut each into fourths; place in another large bowl. Add melted butter; toss to coat, making sure each piece of dough is covered with butter. Roll each piece in pudding mix mixture; place in pan.
  • 4
    Bake 38 to 42 minutes or until golden brown and no longer doughy in center. Cool in pan 10 minutes. Place serving plate upside down over pan; turn plate and pan over. Remove pan.
  • 5
    In small bowl, stir together powdered sugar and enough lemon juice until smooth and drizzling consistency. Add enough food color for desired yellow color; mix well. Drizzle glaze over warm monkey bread. Serve warm; pull apart to serve. Store in airtight container in refrigerator.

Expert Tips

  • For a less tart glaze, simply make the sugar glaze with water instead of lemon juice.
  • Although monkey bread is best served fresh and warm, it can be reheated the next day in a 200°F oven or in the microwave.
