  • 2 cans (16.3 oz) refrigerated Pillsbury™ Grands!™ Flaky Layers Buttermilk Biscuits (8 Count)
  • 1 stick butter, melted
  • 1 1/4 cup sugar, divided
  • 1 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/2 cup eggnog, divided
  • 3 cups powdered sugar
  • 1 tablespoon rum


  • 1
    Preheat oven to 350°F. Open the Grands!™ Biscuits and slice each biscuit into 4 pieces. Place in a large, microwave-safe bowl with melted butter, and sprinkle with 3/4 cup of the sugar plus the nutmeg. Stir until all of the biscuit pieces are well coated.
  • 2
    Transfer biscuit pieces into a large Bundt pan sprayed with nonstick baking spray.
  • 3
    There will be a bit of leftover butter in the microwave-safe bowl. Add remaining sugar and 1/4 cup of eggnog to the bowl. Microwave until bubbling, about 2-4 minutes.
  • 4
    Drizzle eggnog mixture over the biscuit pieces. Bake monkey bread until golden brown, about 32-38 minutes. Remove and cool until just warm to the touch, then invert pan on a large serving platter.

    Whisk together remaining eggnog, powdered sugar, and rum. Drizzle over warm monkey bread. Sprinkle with nutmeg to garnish, if desired.

More About This Recipe

  • Spiced Eggnog Monkey Bread is the perfect holiday treat for breakfast, brunch or snack time. The first time I ever ate monkey bread was at my friend Sarah's house. We'd walked home from school on a chilly, winter day and, like a pro, she started pulling cans from the fridge and tossing Pillsbury™ Biscuit pieces with butter and sugar and cinnamon. It was popped into the oven for a half hour or so, then out came a golden, caramel-y loaf of monkey bread. I thought it was better than donuts. And cinnamon rolls. And cinnamon roll donuts! I pledged to make it again and again. Monkey bread is such a simple snack. It's easy to pull together, and kids and grown-ups all love the playful, finger-friendly serving style of this warm and sweet comfort treat. Over the years, I've made dozens of variations on monkey bread. But my favorite has to be the golden Bundt pulled from my oven this week. Spiced with nutmeg and eggnog and topped with a buttery rum frosting, this Spiced Eggnog Monkey Bread may just happen to be better than donuts, and cinnamon rolls, and even the all-time fave monkey bread recipe! Try tossing a batch together this week, celebrate the holidays with a sweet and simple treat, and enjoy just how fun it can be to eat food with your fingers! Gather 'round ye olde eggnog yule loaf. Forget about sticky fingers and start celebrating – just pull, eat, and enjoy!
