The Mountain Pie Cook-Off is back! The entries are lining up. In the breakfast category, we have Mountain Monkey Bread in pie iron one…

Mountain Monkey Bread? Yeh, Mountain Monkey Bread. And it’s good. Here’s what you do.

Mountain Monkey BreadIngredients

2 rounds of refrigerated biscuit dough, cut into quarters
1 tablespoon sugar
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1 tablespoon brown sugar
1 tablespoon pecans, chopped


1. Combine the cinnamon and sugar in a small bowl.

2, Melt a little butter in your iron, covering both sides.

3. Sprinkle your brown sugar in the butter and add your pecans.

4. Roll each biscuit dough quarter into cinnamon sugar and place in pie iron on top of the brown sugar and pecans. Close and cook until the dough has puffed up and has turned lightly brown.


This was super delicious, but burns easily. Go slow and keep turning, checking often. It took us two tries to get it right. The sugars can easily turn to black goo if you aren’t careful. But once you learn how, it is worth repeating. Everyone loved this.
