Your family is going to love this easy Lemon Curd Monkey Bread for breakfast and dessert. It’s easy to make with just four store bought ingredients. Make some for a weekend treat!
I LOVE Monkey Bread! Love, love, love it!! It’s easy to make and feeds a ton of people… which, for me, are also the downfalls of it… It’s too easy to make and it’s just two of us who eat it. So, I wanted to make a smaller batch of pull-apart bread that we can all enjoy without a ton leftover taunting us to eat.it.all!
My other big love is my love for lemon. I wanted to bring the two together so I was looking up some recipes online and I really didn’t like the idea of using lemon pudding to make a Lemon Monkey Bread. I had some lemon curd so I thought I’d just improvise.
It totally worked!
I skipped the cinnamon in favor of just sugar and butter with a dollop of the lemon curd on top. It was perfect! The lemon baked into the giant muffins and everyone was a happy camper.
The other perfect thing was that each one was the perfect portion to enjoy and not indulge. Don’t get me wrong, I definitely wanted a second one, but I felt that this was a great way to maintain some self control.
I hope that you make these. You don’t need a special weekend or reason to enjoy in some lemony goodness! They also froze great and I can enjoy one whenever I want 🙂
I got lots more Lemon Treats! Check out these favorites –
- 1 package premade Biscuits
- 1/4 cup butter, melted
- 2 tablespoons sugar
- 1 cup Lemon Curd
- Preheat the oven to 350 deg F and spray your jumbo muffin pan with non-stick spray.
- Divide the biscuits and cut them into quarters. Melt the butter and stir in the sugar. Coat the biscuit pieces in the butter and place 5 to 6 pieces into each muffin cup. Add a tablespoon of Lemon Curd to the top.
- Bake for 20 minutes until the tops start to brown. Remove from the oven and allow to cool for 10 minutes before removing from the pan.
I preferred these on the slightly warm side and not piping hot.
