Monkey Bread Muffins

Guess what? Tomorrow is the first day of fall! Which means it's my most favorite time of the year to cook! What's not to love about warm soup, crisp apples and of course all the delicious baked yumminess that comes with fall!

These Monkey Bread Muffins would be the perfect thing to pop in the oven on cool fall morning, or any other morning for that matter. I actually made them a few weeks ago and the entire family went nuts! Better yet, if you have any leftovers (which is doubtful) you can store them in a ziplock bag. When you're ready to eat the rest, just pop them in the microwave for a few seconds and they'll taste like they just came out of the oven.

So break out your spiced scented candles and get cooking! Happy Fall!

Monkey Bread Muffins
Adapted from Goddess of Baking


1 Teaspoons Cinnamon
1/4 Cup Sugar
1 (16 ounce) Can Refrigerated Biscuit Dough, 8 big biscuits
1/2 Cup Brown Sugar
3 Tablespoons Butter, Unsalted
1 Teaspoons Water
1/2 Teaspoon Vanilla
1/2 Teaspoon Cinnamon


Preheat the oven to 375.

Grease muffin cups of a standard muffin pan or fill with paper liners.

Mix the white sugar and cinnamon together in a small bowl and set aside.

Cut each biscuit into quarters. Roll each piece in the cinnamon sugar and place three in each muffin cup. I pressed mine together, just slightly. Continue until all 10 cups are full. Scatter the remaining dough pieces in the muffin pans. You will not have the same number of biscuit pieces in each muffin.

In a saucepan, melt the brown sugar, butter and water until bubbly. Add the vanilla and 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon. Make sure the sugar has melted and the consistency is smooth.

Spoon the brown sugar sauce over each muffin cup. I put about 1 teaspoon of sauce on each muffin. I reserved a small amount of this sauce to drizzle over the muffins when they came out of the oven.

Bake for 10 to 2 minutes. Let stand 5 minutes before taking out of muffin pan. They will stay together better this way.

Spoon more sauce on the muffins while still hot.
