  • 2 tubes refrigerated biscuit dough 8 biscuits each
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
  • ¾ cup butter
  • 1 cup brown sugar


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Liberally grease a 9 cup bundt pan.
  • Remove the biscuits from the can and cut each biscuit into 4 pieces.
  • Place biscuit pieces into a large zip top bag and add the granulated sugar and cinnamon. Seal the bag and shake to coat the biscuit pieces in the cinnamon and sugar.
  • Add the biscuit pieces to the prepared bundt pan.
  • Melt the butter and brown sugar in a small sauce pan over medium heat, stirring often. Once smooth and combined, pour the mixture over the biscuits.
  • Bake for 35 minutes or until no longer doughy in the center.
  • Let cool for 5 minutes and then carefully flip onto a serving dish.
  • Let cool for 10 minutes before serving.



Test the size of your bundt pan, by measuring water and pouring it into the pan. A 9 cup bundt pan will hold 9 cups of water. A larger bundt pan will also work fine, but do not use a smaller pan with this recipe. 
We like to put our pan on a baking sheet before placing in the oven, just in case the caramel leaks over the edges. It's much easier to clean the baking sheet than the oven.
