  • refrigerated biscuit dough - 3 (10-12 oz) packages
  • sugar - 1 cup
  • ground cinnamon - 2 tsp
  • butter - 1/2 cup
  • packed brown sugar - 1 cup
  • chopped walnuts - 1/2 cup
  • raisins - 1/2 cup


mix white sugar and cinnamon in a plastic bag. cut biscuits into quarters. shake 6 to 8 biscuit pieces in the sugar cinnamon mix. arrange pieces in the bottom of the prepared pan. continue until all biscuits are coated and placed into 9" or 10" tube/bundt pan. if using nuts and raisins, arrange them in and among the biscuit pieces as you go along.

in a small saucepan, melt the margarine with the brown sugar over medium heat. boil for 1 minute. pour over the biscuits.

bake at 350° for 35 minutes. let bread cool in pan for 10 minutes, then turn out onto a plate. do not cut! the bread pulls apart.


dip biscuit pieces in melted butter first to help them come apart later on.
