Microwave Monkey Bread

1/3 cup firmly packed brown sugar
3 tablespoons margarine or butter
1 tablespoon water
1 can (7.5 oz) refrigerator biscuits


  1. In an 9 in pie plate, combine the brown sugar, margarine, and water.
  2. Microwave on HIGH uncovered for 1 minute.
  3. Stir to melt the butter and dissolve the sugar.
  4. Cut each biscuit into three or four pieces.
  5. Add the pieces to the butter sugar mixture.
  6. Push biscuit and sugar mixture away from the center of the plate. Place a small empty custard cup in the center to form a ring mold.
  7. Microwave at 100% power for 2 ½ minutes. Biscuits should be sticky when touched.
  8. Allow to stand for a few seconds. Lay dinner plate on top of biscuits then turn over. The biscuits will fall onto the plate: the syrup will ooze onto the biscuits.
