I have mentioned before (once or twice) about how much I love Pinterest. I’m finding so many good things there – crafts, scrapbooking inspiration, and most importantly, new recipes to try.

I have also mentioned before (once or twice) about how I am so not a morning person. I don’t really get going until mid-day, mentally, and so the early mornings required of being a mommy of school-age children is rather challenging for me. Most days, I feel somewhat like a zombie shuffling through the routine. But, I like to have something warm and yummy for my girls to eat before they leave for school.

So, imagine my pleasure when I stumbled across this little gem on Pinterest last week. I knew it had to be somewhere in our future – it looks like a super-easy version of Monkey Bread.

So, this morning was the morning.  I modified the recipe to suit what I had on hand and received no complaints from the monkeys in the house.  They said it was like a cross between cinnamon rolls, biscuits and pancakes.  Well, that is probably because it is! img_1260

I didn’t use the fancy tube pan – I just used my trusty loaf pan – same basic principle but much easier for me to dig out at 5:30 in the morning. (I said it was early, didn’t I?)

You can get the recipe over on Pinterest for the original version.  Or you can use mine here.  I think they’re so close they are virtually the same.

Great idea for a quick breakfast treat.

Gooey Breakfast Goodness

~1 Tbsp cinnamon (I just estimated)
~4 Tbsp butter
~1/2 c sugar (or brown sugar)
~1/4 cup pancake syrup
1 can Pillsbury Grands Biscuits

  1. Preheat oven to 350.
  2. In a large measuring cup, combine first four ingredients. You may want to melt the butter/syrup in the microwave for about 1 minute to make the mixing easier.  Mix well.
  3. Pour about 1-2 Tbsp of the syrup mixture in the bottom of a well-greased loaf pan (just enough to coat the bottom.
  4. In the pan, then stand biscuits on their sides like little soldiers marching along.
  5. Pour the remaining syrup mixture over the biscuits and sprinkle with cinnamon sugar if desired.
  6. Bake at 350 for about 30-40 minutes.
  7. Allow them to cool for a couple minutes before diving in to the yummy goodness. Can be rewarmed in the microwave if any are left over.
