Easy-Made Monkey Bread

Sharing another great post from Organizer By Day. Hope you like it!

Happy Thursday Everyone! Hope you all are having a great week so far. TGTF (thank goodness tomorrow's Friday) right?! This weekend I believe...fingers crossed...we don't have any plans! I promised to help sub a Zumba class Saturday morning, but that's it. I seriously can't believe it. I'm half scared to even say this, because every time we realize we have a weekend free we end up getting booked with tons of plans. We'll see if our free weekend stays that way :)

I've told you on here before we followed Dave Ramsey to get debt free, and we still use his model today. That means when our budget is spent, the money is gone until the next payday. And we stick to it. This past week, even though we were out of eggs and milk (we don't have kids so it's not pertinent for us to have it everyday), I wanted to come up with something delicious for the weekend. It was tough seeing as I needed a recipe that didn't include either of those. Good luck, right?! I opened up the fridge, stared, stared, and stared some more and I finally came up with this super quick and super Easy-Made Monkey Bread!
I didn't want to call this homemade Monkey Bread since technically I didn't make the biscuits from scratch. But that's what makes these so great, they're so darn easy!
Just cut:
Drop and Coat:
Plop and Cover:
Place and Bake:
And you're done! Oh...don't forget the yummy icing!
I had a little assembly line going and it made it even easier to get these all done!

3/4 Cup brown sugar
3 tsp cinnamon
8 Biscuits
5 Tbsp butter
1 Tbsp corn syrup

1 Cup powdered sugar
2 Tbsp milk
1 Tbsp butter, melted
1 tsp vanilla


Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Grease a muffin tin and set aside. Mix together the brown sugar and cinnamon and set that aside too.

Cut up all your biscuits into 6 pieces.

Melt the butter in a small bowl, then add in the corn syrup. Drop the pieces into the butter mix then dip them in the sugar cinnamon mix. Make sure each piece is coated in sugar before removing it.

Place four pieces into each muffin tin. Bake for about 12 minutes. When the timer goes off, turn off the oven and let the monkey bread sit in the oven for another few minutes. It helps them crunch up without continuing to cook.

Remove from the oven and run a knife along the edges to make sure they're easy to take out. Combine everything for the icing and drizzle all over the bread.

Serve and enjoy!
Do you have any fun plans for the weekend? Are you excited to NOT have any plans for this weekend?! I hope whatever you are doing you have a fabulous time doing it!

Thanks for stopping by!

  3. That is such a great way to make it! I have always wanted to make it, but I don't have a bunt pan, plus maybe doing it that way could help me with portion control? (Not likely! Haha)
