Gigi Hadid has been popping off with the recipes on her Instagram stories during quarantine and her monkey bread is almost to die for. This masterpiece doesn’t take very long to make and only requires a few ingredients. Let’s get started!

Always preheat your oven first! For this recipe, you’ll need your oven to be set at 350 degrees. Next, cut 2 cans of buttermilk biscuits into bite size pieces. I just cut each biscuit into four pieces but you’re welcome to cut them smaller or leave them larger. 

In a separate bowl, mix the sugar and cinnamon. Set a greased bundt pan next to you so you have easy access. Take your biscuit pieces and absolutely bury them in the cinnamon sugar mixture, placing each piece in the pan afterwards. You want every piece of the biscuit to be covered, trust me. 

Now for the glaze! In a saucepan, melt together the butter, remaining cinnamon sugar mixture and brown sugar. Bring the mixture to a boil, take off the heat and stir together until the sugar dissolves. You don’t want a crunchy glaze. 

Pour the glaze over your biscuit pieces in the bundt pan. Don’t be alarmed if the glaze basically drowns the biscuits– that’s normal and makes it all the much better. Place the pan in the oven for 30 minutes, checking on it to make sure the top isn’t burning.

Once finished, make sure you let it sit for at least 10 minutes. This helps the glaze really get gooey and hold the bread together. I wouldn’t recommend saving this bread for longer than two or three days. It hardens overtime!
