Mug Monkey Bread

One of my favorite indulgences is monkey bread, but it is so extremely indulgent that I usually reserve it only for Christmas.

However, temptation got the better of me and I decided to try to find a single serve monkey bread recipe.

I found this one on World Kitchen, but it left a little to be desired.

Frankly, nothing is ever going to be as good as monkey bread made in the over.

The sugar doesn’t caramelize and there isn’t a crust.

However, my new and improved version is still enjoyable! Perhaps next I’ll try popping it in the broiler or making a toaster oven version.

Kid Approved!

My kids tried the batch pictured and it was a hit! But then, you can’t go wrong with butter and sugar, can you?

This is probably a little too generous for a single serving–two adults of three kids would find it just right.
