Microwave Monkey Bread

It’s been a while since I posted a recipe, and with the start of school just around the corner, I figure that in honor of my own children, I’ll share their very favorite snack—

Microwave Monkey Bread.

1/3 C. brown sugar
1/3 C. margarine
1 TBSP water
½ tsp cinnamon
¼ C. chopped nuts (optional)
1 (7.5 oz) can refrigerated biscuits (the cheap kind)

In a shallow 1 qt. round (glass) baking dish, combine brown sugar, margarine, water, and cinnamon. Cook, covered with paper towel for 1 ½ minutes, stirring after margarine melts. Stir in nuts. Separate and cut each biscuit into quarters. Add to sugar mixture; stir, coating each piece. Push mixture away from center and set a juice glass in the center. Cook, uncovered, for 4 minutes on HIGH power. Let stand for 1 minute and remove glass. Invert to serving dish. Serve warm.

NOTE: We don’t actually ever invert them onto a serving dish—we flip them over in the pan, coating both sides with the sugar-sauce, divide them up and then eat them like ravening wolves.
