Similar to monkey bread or pull-apart loaf, this easy variation is made from time-saving ingredients and cooks quickly in the microwave.

Total Time:
20 mins
1 shallow tube pan


  • cup brown sugar

  • 2 tablespoons water

  • 2 tablespoons butter

  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

  • 1 (8 ounce) tube refrigerated biscuit dough, separated and cut into quarters

  • ½ cup diced apple (Optional)


  1. Mix brown sugar, water, butter, and cinnamon together in a microwave-safe bowl; heat in microwave until the butter melts, about 2 minutes.

  2. Stir biscuit dough and apple with the sugar mixture to coat dough pieces completely. Spread the mixture evenly around the ring of a microwave-safe tube pan (such as Bundt®).

  3. Cook in microwave oven on High for 3 minutes. Let rolls finish cooking as they rest at room temperature for 5 minutes. Invert onto a serving platter.

Cook's Note:

A silicone tube pan works great, but you can substitute a glass pie plate with a custard cup in the center.

A double recipe will take 5 to 8 minutes in the microwave.

Use your favorite dried fruit in place of the apple.
