Raspberry monkey bread

1/3 cup, plus 1/3 cup sugar, divided 

1 tsp. ground cinnamon 

2 cans buttermilk biscuits, each biscuit quartered

1/4 cup sliced almonds

1/2 cup fresh raspberries 

1/4 cup seedless raspberry jam

1/2 cup butter

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Prepare by spraying bundt pan with baking spray with flour. 

In a large resealable bag, combine 1/2 cup sugar and cinnamon, shake well. Add biscuit pieces to sugar mixture and shake to coat. Layer 1/3 of biscuit quarters in prepared pan. Sprinkle with half of almonds and half of raspberries. 

Drizzle with half of jam. Repeat layers once, top with remaining biscuit pieces.  

In a small saucepan bring butter and remaining 1/2 cup sugar to a boil over medium heat. Cook stirring constantly until sugar is dissolved. Carefully pour onto biscuit pieces. Bake 40 minutes, covering with foil to prevent excess browning.
