Cook time
Total time
For this example, I used a 10 count package of Pillsbury Buttermilk Biscuits (net wt 7.5 oz).
Recipe type: Breakfast
Serves: 12
  • Package of refrigerator biscuits
  • ¼ C carrot cake mix or spice cake mix
  • 2 T butter or margarine
  • ½ Apple
  • 2 T golden raisins
  • 3 squares of Carmel candy
  1. Preheat oven to 350.
  2. Using kitchen scissors, cut each biscuits into 9 pieces (two snips in each direction - think tic tac toe).
  3. Peal and core the apple then chop into small pieces.
  4. Place the cut up biscuits, chopped apple and raisins on a plate. Separate the items so that they are in a single layer.
  5. Put ¼ cup of the cake mix into a gallon size baggie.
  6. Microwave the butter or margarine in a glass cup for about 30 seconds or until melted.
  7. Drizzle the melted butter over the items on the plate to coat. Do not completely empty all the butter out of the cup.
  8. Taking a small section of the items at a time, add to the bag with the cake mix and lightly toss.
  9. Take the items from the bag and start filling the cupcake pan. Each section should only be about ½ full.
  10. Bake for 15 minutes.
  11. While the Monkey Bread is baking, add the 3 squares of Carmel candy to the cup that contained the melted butter and microwave for 30 seconds.
  12. Drizzle the melted candy/butter mixture over the tops of the Monkey Bread and bake an additional 5 - 10 minutes
