Gooey Gorilla Bread

By Paula Deen


Difficulty: Easy



  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 3 (12 oz) cans refrigerated biscuit dough
  • 1 stick butter
  • 1 cup packed light brown sugar


Preheat the oven to 350 °F. Grease a 12-cup Bundt or tube pan with butter, oil, or cooking spray.

In a medium bowl, whisk together the granulated sugar and cinnamon. Cut each biscuit round into 4 wedges and dredge each wedge in the cinnamon sugar. Layer the wedges in the prepared pan.

In a small saucepan, melt the butter over low heat. Add the brown sugar and stir until melted. Pour over all the biscuit pieces. Bake until golden brown, 45 to 55 minutes. If you see the gorilla bread beginning to brown too quickly, loosely cover it with some foil. Let the bread cool in the pan for 5 minutes, then invert onto a plate. This is best served warm so that it’s nice and gooey.
