This is my recipe- 2 things: Cooking spray is missing from the ingredient list and you will spoon about 2 TBS of the butter/brown sugar mixture over each muffin. The original recipe was also edited- you should fill each muffin cup until full (8-10 pieces) of biscuits, not the 4-5 pieces as listed here. Enjoy!
I make this with cupcake liners and put a scoop of apple pie filling in bottom then roll the dough in sugar cinnamon and apple pie spice....then I add the brown sugar and butter over the top. My grandsons love this
These were much simpler than my mothers recipe. Very good for being such a quick thing to throw together. Also one thing we usually do with our monkey bread is after removing the pan from the oven let it cool about 5 minutes and then run a knife around the edges of each muffin cup to loosen them then flip the tray upside down on a baking sheet and let it set a minute for the gooey-cinnamon topping to go down on the top of the muffins. Then remove the tray.
OMG so yummy! Super easy but I had a bit of technically difficulty with mine. I won't let that affect the rating because they were so delicious. I love almost anything with cinnamon and sugar so these are right up my alley. These should be a HUGE hit with anyone who likes cinnamon rolls. I can totally see myself making these in the future and drizzling a vanilla glaze over them when serving. The issues I had were that I couldn't find 7.5oz packages of biscuits so I bought 1 package of 16.4oz biscuits. Since it was a little bit larger amount I made 9 portions. But the biscuits were Pillsbury Grands which I think filled the muffin tins a bit too full. The biscuits definitely should be regular size NOT Grands because I poured the butter mixture over the biscuit pieces and while baking some of the sauce bubbled out and into the oven (and I still had a bit of the sauce left over that wouldn't fit in the pans.)
I think there is some confusion with the recipe. There's a review out there where the creator says there's a typo and to put 8-10 pieces in a cup. I think a lot of people missed that and got burnt results because they only used 5 pieces. I used 10 pieces in each and it seemed just a bit too much. I highly suggest making 10 muffins with 8 pieces. As others have mentioned the sugar-cinnamon mixture is way too much and there's a lot left over. Half it at least. I cooked it at 400 degrees but started to get nervous and turned it down to 350 degrees for the last 8 minutes. They didn't burn and were a great success. They did bubble over in the oven though and they were a bit too big but they were loved by all. I might try mixing in other things in the future - orange peel craisins pecans maybe chocolate chips...
I used a homemade bread recipe (Portuguese Sweet Bread I) but followed the recipe exact otherwise. My family fell in love with this all over again. It was nice to have perfectly done monkey bread and no raw spots. Thanks. NOTE: Kathleen is exactly right. Spray the heck out of your muffin tins or you'll have a mess on your hands.
FANTASTIC! Both tasty and super easy. I only had a can of Grands buttermilk biscuits so I cut them into eighths. Following the advice of a previous poster I used the entire muffin tin and they fit just right. Also baked at 350 for about 13-14 minutes. My 15 year old son said he thought he and I could probably finish off the whole batch before hubby gets home....tempting! Thanks so much for sharing a great new addition to my recipe file.
This recipe was alright if you turned down the oven to 350 degrees F and cut the cooking time in half. The first batch I made was extremely burnt. Also this recipe makes 16 servings with 5 pieces in every cup and you only need about a 1/2 cup or less of sugar and a 1/2 tablespoon cinnamon for the biscuit pieces to be coated in. Using 3/4 cup sugar and 1 tablespoon of cinnamon is a waste because you end up with a lot left over almost as much as you started with.
