I sure do love monkey bread, it's delicious!!
I decided to make this for dessert for a party my soccer "team" is having after practice. It was really simple and fun to make, I think I might made it with my niece once she's a little bit older!  It came out really well, and I'm hoping it'll be a hit with everyone tonight.




Here's a tutorial if anyone is curious as to how it's made. I made mine in a muffin tin so there could be individual servings, but you can put the pieces in a round cake pan, bundt cake pan or just place them on a cookie sheet!

The following ingredients list made me 36 individual serving sizes:

3 Cans of biscuits (there were 8 biscuits in each can)
1 Cup sugar
4 Tbs. Cinnamon
1 cup butter (melted)

Other materials:
1 Sharp Knife (ask your parents for help, kiddies!)
1 Cutting board
1 Muffin pan (12 muffin cups in the pan)
Cooking Spray
Oven
1 Ziplock baggy


Got your all of your supplies together? GREAT! Let's get started!

1: Pre-heat the over to 350F, then mix together the cinnamon and sugar into a ziplock baggy.



2: Melt your butter in a microwave safe dish (I chose a Pirex glass measuring cup) and mix in some of the cinnamon sugar mixture (about a tablespoon or so)

3:   Open your tasty biscuits, and try not to jump when they pop (some how I always do, but so do the dogs, so I feel a little better that I'm not the only one!)



4: Pull apart the biscuits and cut each one into 8 pieces (I usually cut it into forths length wise, then cut each forth in half) I found that 16 pieces (which is 2 biscuits!)  will happily fill 3 of the muffin cups (5 pieces per cup, then split the remaining piece where you see fit).



5: Roll each piece between your hands (think making a small snake out of playdoh), then place it into the bag of cinnamon sugar, close the baggy and shake it up, making sure to coat all of the pieces entirely!



6: Once the pieces are covered in cinnamon sugar, place them in the muffin cups (about 5 pieces for each cup)



7: Repeat steps 4-6 until all of your cups are filled, or all of your biscuits are gone, which ever comes first.


8: Once all of the cups are filled, spoon a little bit of the sugar/butter mixture into the muffin cups, over the biscuit pieces.



9: Place in the over and bake for 15-17 minutes, or until the biscuits are well cooked. Take the pan out of the oven when the timer goes off.






10: Allow the monkey bread to cool, then take out of the pan (they should come out pretty easily if you turn the pan upside down over some foil)  and enjoy!! Feel free to hang from a tree and oot like a monkey while eating them!





Please let me know if you try the recipe and how you liked it, or if you found a way to change it! I'd love to see what people do!

Okay, I may need to make a trip to the grocery store specifically for biscuits after seeing this.  My MIL makes monkey bread but she uses her huge Kitchenaid mixer and a four hour long dough making process, so I've never wanted to attempt it...but this, I could do, AND enjoy!  My 7 year old would sooo love it too!  Thanks for the inspiration and recipe.   Grin

My hubby and kids made me monkey bread for mother's day!  We've always used a big bunt cake pan, and it takes a long time to cook-this would be so much faster!  Yummy!

They look so tasty.... I do believe I have a can of Grands in my fridge right now.... might be a quick breakfast... add melon, strawberries and blueberries on the side and bam!  might be super tasty!

Thanks for the monkey bread nudge!

Okay so once again I am completely redoing my pictures. Got tired of photobucket, the only reason I used it was for here so I decided I will just use Craftster's photo uploader. So while I am switching over my photo links will be broken. Message me if there is a post you would like the pics for.

What a good idea to put them in muffin tins.  I never thought of that.

I think you pour it over the biscuits around step 8.  Not sure, but it looks like there's melted butter on her pan in the pic!

i think making individual servings of monkey bread might be the best idea ever.  lessens the chances of eating the whole thing in one sitting, since with the big loaf you can just sit there and pick at it and it's gone before you know it!  Wink   Cheesy
those look delicious, and i might have to try this the next time i'm craving some monkey bread.

I'm really glad everyone likes this!
I took it to our party tonight and it was all eaten up fast! I brought 32 little servings with me, and my tupperware was empty by the time I had to go home (my boyfriend was actually eating the last one as he was saying good bye [after celebrating the victory of getting the last monkey bread!])

Let me know how everything turns out if you make it!!  Adding melon and berries on the side to make it a breakfast treat sounds wonderful! Oooh fresh strawberries! How brilliant!

I made this recipe tonight for dessert!

There are just three of us so I used one tin of biscuits (9) and only half a cup of butter...I eyeballed the sugar and cinnamon.  I cut each biscuit into quarters and put 4 quarters in each muffin cup.  Bake 15mins.

YUMMY!

I was wondering that too, but I have a feeling that they are a US-only delicacy. However I was wondering about doing them with ready-roll puff pastry? They look absolutely gorgeous!

DO you have something like Bisquick in the UK?  Like powdered biscuit mix?  You could make up a batch, roll it up in little balls and shake it in the sugar...then make it the same way...a little more labour intensive but should get you roughly the same result.

Wow. I want to eat these! They look so tasty.

I have never heard of anything similar to American "biscuits" before, or even "bisquik" which was mentioned before. What are they? Is it savoury? kind of like a bread roll? Or more like ""normal"" biscuits which are cookies?

Does anyone know if "biscuits" in a can are available in Australia anywhere? Or does anyone know a recipie which will made biscuits like this?

Biscuits in the US are like a bread roll. I guess maybe you could call it a dumpling or english muffin? It's a soft bread that is usually eaten with meats or foods with gravy. They're really tasty! I'm sure you can find a recipe online.

Thanks.. I am thinking they sound a little like Yorkshire pudding... or maybe scones, just not sweet. Thank you for adding the searching a recipe. I had a bit of a blonde moment and forgot about that. It's almost 4am I'm a little delirious hah.

This is a great idea, to use muffin tins. My daughter and I have been making a similar treat in a large pan, 9 x 13, with about 4 packages of biscuits, the smaller size, still 8 biscuits, but buttermilk biscuits or whatever is on sale. We do not roll the pieces... I find overworking the dough can toughen it. With the smaller-diameter biscuits, we simply cut them in quarters, and the resulting plump triangles nestle together nicely. In the large pan, they are great as pull-aparts, but I can hardly wait to make these with my grandchildren and the more individualized portions in muffin tins.

Thanks for a great recipe!!

When I make monkey bread, I roll the cut biscuits in the butter before I roll in cinnamon and sugar.
