Pumpkin Caramel Monkey Bread

  • Yield: 6-8 servings 1x


Soft, buttery bites coated in gooey pumpkin caramel sauce and a drizzle of white chocolate. My family loves this pumpkin caramel monkey bread!


Units Scale

Pumpkin Caramel:

  • 6 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1 cup loosely packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 1/2 cup canned pumpkin puree (unsweetened)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • a good pinch of kosher salt, to taste


  • one 16-ounce can refrigerated buttermilk biscuits
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 tablespoon granulated sugar

White Chocolate Drizzle:

  • 1/2 cup white chocolate chips
  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil


  1. Make the Caramel: Melt butter in a small saucepan. Add brown sugar, heavy cream, pumpkin, vanilla, and salt. Whisk until smooth. Bring to a low simmer and let it bubble gently until it’s incorporated and slightly thickened, 3-5 minutes (you don’t want to overcook it or it will get too thick). Remove from heat. 
  2. Prep the Dough: Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Cut the biscuits into 6 even pieces (half, then into thirds). Toss the biscuit pieces with cinnamon and sugar. Transfer to a round 9-inch cake pan or baking dish.
  3. Assemble: Pour most of the pumpkin caramel over the biscuits until mostly covered. Set aside the remaining 1/4 to 1/2 cup caramel for topping.
  4. Bake: Bake for 20 minutes. Remove from the oven, let rest for just 2-3 minutes and then invert onto a serving plate.
  5. Optional Topping: Melt the white chocolate and coconut oil in the microwave in 15 second increments, stirring in between. Once melted, drizzle over the monkey bread. Drizzle with reserved pumpkin caramel (optional). Serve warm.


To use with Rhodes frozen dinner rolls: Thaw the rolls for about 45 minutes at room temperature. Cut into 4 pieces, toss with cinnamon sugar and an extra tablespoon or two of melted butter. Transfer to the baking dish and let it sit on the counter for another 1 hour to allow the dough to rise. Once the dough has doubled, pour the sauce over and bake according to the recipe above – adding a few extra minutes if needed.
