Muffin Cup Monkey Bread

Muffin Cup Monkey Bread is a nice quick and easy dessert to throw together in a pinch.

My husband and I have purposely not been keeping snacks or desserts in the house. If you don’t have anything sweet, you will most definitely develop a sweet tooth, right?

That happened earlier this week so I just whipped up this Muffin Cup Monkey Bread. I was pleasantly surprised to find a can of biscuits in the refrigerator. All you really need is biscuits, cinnamon, sugar and butter. 

My muffin pan is about 35 years old so it is a dark color and well seasoned. A well seasoned pan will cook just a tad quicker than a newer pan.

Pour the melted butter and brown sugar mixture on top of the biscuits and place into the oven.

    1. I did not know that Monkey Bread was considered to be American but I like that 🙂 I’m always hearing people say that America doesn’t actually have a culture. Thanks Anna.

  2. I haven’t made monkey bread in years! Thanks for reminding me that I really like it! I’ve always made mine in a pound cake or bundt pan. I’m going to try it your way.

    1. I hadn’t made it in years either until the other day 🙂 It sure is good though! I like the Muffin Cups because you can portion it that way. Thanks for the Pin.

We enjoying hearing from you!
