Why We Love This Recipe

  • I’ve taken my easy Apple Monkey Bread recipe that serves 6 and transformed it into an Mini Apple Fritter Monkey Bread recipe. In this mini monkey bread, I’ve stuffed diced apples in between the puffy layers of dough coated with cinnamon sugar.
  • The apples add a wonderful taste and this dessert completely reminds me of an apple fritter.

How To Make Monkey Bread

For this easy-to-make apple monkey bread recipe, I used a toaster oven. You can also use a conventional oven and keep the temperature and cooking times the same.

  • I use a package of 10-count refrigerator biscuits and cut each biscuit into quarters.
  1. Roll each quarter of dough into a ball.
  2. In a bowl, mix together cinnamon, brown sugar and white sugar.
  3. Melt butter and transfer the cinnamon sugar to a ziplock bag.
  4. Dip each ball of dough into the melted butter, toss them into the bag and line the bottom of your buttered ramekin.
  5. After you’ve gotten a layer on the bottom, add the diced apples.
  6. Add another layer of buttery, sugared dough over the apples.
  7. Pour a mixture of melted butter, sugar and cinnamon over the top and place in the toaster oven.
  8. Bake the monkey bread in the toaster oven for about 25-30 minutes.
  • When the Apple Fritter Monkey Bread is done, take it out of the toaster oven and let it cool for a few minutes, then either pull the warm bites of dough from the bowl to enjoy or turn the monkey bread out onto a plate.

When you turn the monkey bread upside down onto a plate, the cinnamon sugar drizzles down the sides and between the layers of dough. It’s absolutely delicious!

  1. So this helps with the portion control right? 😉 I love how easy this is and I love even more your other recipes that you share…GENIUS. I would have never thought to have done that with those biscuits.

  2. I must be missing something as the recipe calls for a 10 biscuit package yet says it is a single serving? Should I only be using 1 or 2 biscuits then?

    1. Hi Kris, you will be using the entire tube. It sounds like a lot, but what you’ll do is cut each biscuit into quarters and roll each quarter piece of dough into a ball. The balls of dough will be small, that’s why you end up using the entire tube.

  3. Oh my gosh I’m drooling over this recipe! I’m so happy to be in your SITS group or I wouldn’t have seen this. I can’t wait to try it, I love monkey bread and this is the easiest recipe I’ve seen yet!

  4. LOVE! I am a big fan of both but no one else in my house is. Thank you so much for the perfect little recipe when I am in one of those moods.

    Coming at you from the SITS Comment Love Tribe!

  5. Gah! I am SO trying this today. You had me at “sweet and buttery”. I’ll have to do this after my 3-year-old twins go to bed though. It’s meant to be for one and I intend on keeping it that way. lol!

  6. What a great idea! I never thought to make a monkey bread for one….I usually just make the huge version and eat it…like it’s just for one. 🙂 Thanks for sharing!

  7. You had me at apple fritter. LOL! This take on monkey bread is awesome! I can’t wait to try it and share it with my daughter who’s in college. 🙂 Sharing the SITS love today. 😉
