  • Author: Sofi | Broma Bakery
  • Prep Time: 5 minutes
  • Cook Time: 12 minutes
  • Total Time: 17 minutes
  • Yield: 8 muffins 1x
  • Category: Breakfast
  • Method: Oven
  • Cuisine: American


for the monkey bread muffins

  • 1 can biscuit dough (we used Pillsbury Grands!)
  • 4 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tablespoons cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
  • pinch of salt

for the cream cheese glaze:

  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 2 tablespoons cream cheese
  • 1 tablespoon milk
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon


  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F and line 8 muffin cups with muffin tins. Set aside.
  2. Combine the sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt in a bowl and stir to combine. Set aside. Pour the melted butter into a small bowl.
  3. Use a pair of kitchen scissors to cut each biscuit into quarters. Dip each piece in butter and then the cinnamon sugar mixture to fully coat the pieces. Fill each muffin cup with the biscuit pieces. We put about 6 pieces in each cup.
  4. Bake at 350°F for 11 minutes, or until the biscuit pieces are mostly baked, but still gooey in the middle.
  5. Allow the muffins to cool slightly while you make the cream cheese glaze. Combine all the glaze ingredients in a sauce pan over medium heat and whisk until combined. Drizzle the glaze over the warm muffins and serve hot!

What do you think about using Pillsbury Frozen Grand Biscuits? To let them thaw and then cut each into four pieces. Do you think that would work? These frozen raw biscuits taste so much like homemade biscuits – more than the canned biscuits. Thanks.

Hey Carey! I think that would work perfectly! We’ve never tried it, but I don’t see why it wouldn’t work!
