I love monkey bread, but it usually takes so long to make. This recipe is a lot easier, and can give you a quick monkey bread fix without all the time and effort you would normally put into making it. Nothing beats hot monkey bread right out of the oven, but this will do!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Place the butter, water, brown sugar and cinnamon in a glass pan and microwave for 2 minutes.
  2. Put biscuits into pan with mixture and stir everything (gently!) so the biscuits are completely coated.
  3. Microwave for 5 mins at 70% power or until done.

What a great recipe for my kids to make! Simple, warm and yummy! The pan didn't even come out of the microwave hot so it seems very safe for them to make. I baked it for 5 minutes at 70% and it was a little dry so I think I will drop the time back and check it next time I do it.... and I will make it again! So good! Hmmm, maybe next time I will sprinkle pecans on top!

made this last night when i was looking for a quick snack. used one 7.5 oz can of biscuits - but kept the rest of the ingredients the same. was more then enough for two - my boyfriend never had monkey bread before and he loved it - said ti reminded him of a cinnimon bun. great recipe for a quick sugar fix
