Monkey Brains (Pull Apart Bread)

So, I’m not sure why we call this monkey brains except that my husband used the name once and it stuck. The kids, of course, thought the name was cool. 😉 This is a very simple recipe and it makes a wonderfully tasty addition to any breakfast. Since canned biscuits aren’t always cheap, I started buying the store brand biscuits (ie. Best Choice). They taste very similar to us and at $0.50 a pop, I cannot argue with that. Enjoy!

Monkey Brains (Pull Apart Bread)
Prep time
Cook time
Total time
  • 2 cans biscuits (10 ct)
  • ⅓ cup sugar
  • ¼ cup brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • ¼ cup melted butter
  1. Preheat oven to 350 F (175 C). Spray an 8" or 9" cake pan with non-stick cooking spray.
  2. Use kitchen shears to cut biscuits into bite size pieces (I cut my biscuits into 5 or 6 pieces each). Put biscuits into large mixing bowl with a lid.
  3. Add the sugar through cinnamon to the mixing bowl with the biscuits. Place the lid on the bow and shake, shake, shake!
  4. Take the lid off and dump the biscuit mixture into the prepared pan. Pour melted butter over the biscuits.
  5. Bake at 350 F for 15 minutes or until cooked through in the center. If you push down the center and it is still mushy, cook for another 5 minutes. You can always test the center with a knife, too. Enjoy!
