Truth be told, this is a much easier version of the traditional bundt cake option and I always love to lean towards EASY. Monkey bread is also a lot of fun to assemble. Get the kids involved because this is one kitchen task that the entire family can participate in.

And boy, do we love monkey bread! We’ve featured Christmas Monkey Bread, Chocolate Chip Monkey Bread (oh Lord help me), and then your traditional base Monkey Bread recipe.

Pineapple Upside Down Monkey Bread Recipe

Ingredients

makes 1 9 inch bundt pan

  • 2-16oz can Homestyle Biscuits
  • 1/2 C sweetened shredded coconut
  • 2 Tbsp sugar
  • 1/2 C unsalted sweet cream butter
  • 2/3 C light brown sugar
  • 1 C maraschino cherries cut in half
  • 3 C pineapple chunks, juice drained

How To Make Pineapple Monkey Bread

Cut biscuits in quarters

Preheat oven to 350 degrees and spray a bundt pan with baking spray. Then set your bundt pan aside.  Cut each biscuit round into quarters. I use Homestyle Pillsbury Biscuits, but you can use whatever type you’d like. Each biscuit should be cut into 4 pieces.

Cover biscuits in coconuts

Place your biscuits pieces into a large bowl and then mix the contents with sugar and coconut. Cover evenly and set aside. Have I mentioned yet that this is the absolute best way to end a meal? Oh my word! 

Melt butter in bundt pan

Melt butter and brown sugar in a small pot until combined, mixing gradually. Pour into greased bundt pan.

Add pineapples and cherries

Next up, you will want to place your cherries into your caramel mixture. Then add your pineapple chunks on top of the cherries.

Top with money bread

Finally, place your dough mixture on top of the pineapples. Bake for 45-50 minutes or until dough is completely cooked in the middle. Every oven is different – so be sure to check often. 

Finished pineapple dessert on platter

Place a large plate or cake stand on top of the bundt pan and flip over. This is how you get the upside down part of the monkey bread recipe
