Every 6 weeks or so it’s my Sunday school’s turn to bring food to church.
Previously I made some yummy granola bars. Last week I made these delicious monkey break muffins.
This was my first time ever making OR eating monkey bread.
I had never even heard of it before Pinterest. Don’t know if that’s a Cuban-American First Generation problem or some kind of regional thing or what.
Now that I have made it & tried it I am hooked.
These were so simple! I got this recipe from The Frugal Girls.
The secret is refrigerated biscuit dough!
Cut each biscuit in 6 pieces. Then shake them in cinnamon sugar.
Put 8-10 biscuit pieces in each foil cupcake liner. Foil liners really are the way to go for these. I ran out & used some paper liners to finish the recipe, which I had doubled, & the results were super sticky. I made a little over 3 dozen muffins by doubling the recipe, so i’d say this recipe makes about 20 muffins.
Add raisins, walnuts, whatever else your heart desires! I made a mixture – I like giving people options! I found it best if you put 4-5 biscuit pieces in, then sprinkle in the stuff & top off with more biscuit pieces. This way they raisins/whatever are not just floating on the surface, but nicely mixed in with everything else.
I differed from the Frugal Girl’s recipe a bit by spooning 1 tablespoon of the brown sugar/butter mix over each muffin.
The results were glorious.
Buttery, sugary, chewy, soft, crunchy – in other words YUMMY!
These were the talk of the day at church.
