Bisquick Blackberry Monkey Bread

Bisquick Blackberry Monkey Bread is a delicious monkey bread that uses real food. No more canned biscuits. The blackberries add another level of flavor.

If you’ve been a reader very long, you know that I like to make things from scratch. I like to know what is in my food. I want less preservatives and chemicals and more real food. 

Many of the Monkey Bread recipes have you use canned biscuits. I’m not a huge fan of canned biscuits. And I don’t know what is in those biscuits. So I decided to make those dough balls out of DIY bisquick. I know what is in that because I made it. I keep a canister with DIY bisquick in for whenever I need it. 

As I developed this recipe, I was afraid it was going to be hard. While it does take a little more time than cutting canned biscuits in quarters, it did not take a ton of time and was fairly easy. Once you have your dough balls rolls (which isn’t hard at all) this recipe assembles very quickly.

This Bisquick Blackberry Monkey Bread recipe does use blackberry jam. You can choose to buy the blackberry jam or you can make your own. Lucy has a great recipe for Thirty-Second Blackberry Jam. Her recipe has 2 ingredients and both are real food. This recipe can be completely from scratch or you can buy your bisquick and jam and it be a little less from scratch.
