For the Monkey Bread:

Cooking spray

1 16-ounce tube refrigerated biscuit dough

3/4 cup granulated sugar

3 tablespoons packed light brown sugar

1 tablespoon finely grated orange zest

1 stick unsalted butter, melted

1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

For the Coulis:

1 cup strawberries, chopped

1/2 cup granulated sugar

1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice


  1. Make the monkey bread: Preheat the oven to 375˚ and coat an 8-inch (6-cup) Bundt pan with cooking spray.
  2. Cut each biscuit into 4 pieces. Whisk the granulated sugar, brown sugar and orange zest in a medium bowl until the zest is evenly distributed. Whisk the melted butter and vanilla in a separate bowl.
  3. Dip the biscuit pieces in the butter mixture, then roll in the sugar mixture and arrange in the prepared pan. Bake until deep golden brown on top, 30 to 35 minutes.
  4. Meanwhile, make the coulis: Combine the strawberries, granulated sugar and lemon juice in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Cook, stirring, until the sugar is dissolved and the mixture comes to a boil, about 5 minutes. Let cool slightly, then transfer to a blender and puree until smooth (or puree in the saucepan with an immersion blender). Strain through a fine-mesh sieve into a bowl and let cool.
  5. Invert the monkey bread onto a plate while still warm; let cool slightly. Serve with the coulis.
