Moms. Do yourself a favor this Mother’s Day. Go to the store or dig through your kitchen. Assemble the following ingredients. Put them in your bundt cake pan. Print out the recipe and place it in the pan with the ingredients. Buy a bottle of champange and a bottle of orange juice. Inform spouse/partner/eldest child (old enough to use oven) that you won’t be getting out of bed on Mother’s Day until the Biscuit Cinnamon Ring is done and mimosas are poured. Then, sleep in.

Look, I’m sure your family has something really fantastic planned for your Mother’s Day. I’m sure. I hope they do because you deserve it. But, you know, just in case things go awry, this is a delicious backup plan.

Also perfectly suitable to make for yourself at 4:30 on a Friday afternoon, whether your a mama or not. It’s like the cop out version of monkey bread and I for one, am totally happy to cop out.

Biscuit Cinnamon Ring

  • 1 1/2 Tubes Grands Flaky Biscuits (I recommend the original)
  • 3 Tbsp melted butter
  • 1/2 Cup syrup (use Aunt Jemima or get fancy. Doesn’t matter)
  • 1/2 Cup brown sugar
  • 1 Tbsp. cinnamon
  • Optional: 1/2 cup chopped nuts of your choice
  • bundt/fluted tube pan
  • cooking spray

**HINT** Make sure you have a plate/platter/bowl whatever big enough to fit the entire biscuit ring when you turn it out from the pan before you have the hot pan out of the oven. Also make sure the plate has some sort of a lip, to catch excess syrup.

  1. Preheat oven to 350. Stir together syrup and melted butter. Spray tube pan with cooking spray, add half butter/syrup mixture to the bottom.
  2. Stir together brown sugar, cinnamon and nuts if using. Sprinkle half in bottom of pan. Open biscuits and begin to stack them around the center of the pan, sprinkling a pinch of cinnamon sugar in between each biscuit.
  3. Top with remaining butter/syrup and cinnamon sugar.
  4. Bake for 20-25 minutes.  WITH POTHOLDERS, hold the edges of the plate and the edges of the pan and flip over, so the pan is now on top and the plate is on the counter. If you are scared to do the flip method, the ring will probably stick together well enough for you to dump it out onto your plate. But remember your working with really hot syrup so be super careful.
  5. Enjoy.

Oh that Dough Boy.

Make sure you get the cinnamon sugar in between the biscuits and in the nooks and crannies.


Ohhhh, look at that.

The flaky biscuits are a great alternative to traditional monkey bread dough. Plus they help sop up all the extra syrup and sugar.
