Okay, so monkey bread is not normally a side dish in most eyes, but for me it is. Anything other than the main meat is a side dish. Well I was gonna do actual monkey bread in a bunt pan but realized after searching for a hour I don't own one, so this became muffins very quickly. My nephew had actually made monkey bread in school using their own recipes. So he deserves the credit on these. After making them I see I had some mixture that was being wasted so I cut his recipe down just a tad. Normally you use the regular size biscuits but I only had the jumbo size ones on hand. They did just as well, and became huge muffins.
1 can of Jumbo can of biscuits or 2 normal size buscuits
1/2 cup of white sugar
1 Tbsp of ground Cinnamon
1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup light brown sugar
1 Tbsp of ground Cinnamon-- yes I meant to say Cinnamon again as you need it separately.
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. In a bowl mix the white sugar and one of the 1 Tbsp of cinnamon. In another microwavable bowl put the butter, brown sugar and other 1 Tbsp of Cinnamon and cook in microwave until butter is melted. Open your can of biscuit(s) and cut each biscuit into 1/4ths. Drop in about 4 pieces of your cut biscuit into the white sugar and cinnamon bowl and mix evenly. Place 2-3 pieces in each muffin hole for jumbo biscuits or 4-5 pieces for normal sizes. After all pieces have been covered in mix and placed into the muffin pans, drizzle the melted butter mixture over each muffin, using about 2 Tbsp. on each one.
Bake for 15-20 minutes, you want them just a bit crispy on top. Allow to cool for 10 minutes before serving.
