  • Open the canned biscuits and break each one into small pieces. Place the pieces in you medium size bowl. Once you are finished breaking up the biscuits you can begin coating them in the cinnamon sugar mixture.
  • Add a few biscuit pieces at a time to the Ziploc bag cinnamon sugar mixture, close the bag and shake to coat the biscuits. Remove the coated biscuit pieces and place them into the sections of your prepared muffin baking pan. Fill each section about half way.
  • If you are adding nuts and or raisins, now is the time to place them into each section of the muffin pan.
  • Now, melt the butter in the microwave and then stir the brown sugar in until completely dissolved. Pour a little of this mixture over the tops of the biscuits in each section in the muffin pan.
  • Place the muffin pan into the preheated and oven and bake for about 20 to 25 minutes or until the biscuits are done.
  • Cool in the pan for about 10 minutes and then remove to your serving platter. Serve and enjoy!

  1. I LOVE awesome, quick, easy recipes! And I love monkey bread, so this is certainly a double-win! I’m so happy you’re with us on The Yuck Stops Here! HUGS

    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!
