Quick and easy monkey bread muffins - perfect brunch food.
  • 1 can biscuits - 16oz
  • ½ cup white sugar
  • 1 tea cinnamon
  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • ¼ cup butter
  • 1 tea vanilla
  • Optional- icing:
  • ½ cup confectioner's sugar
  • 1 tbl milk
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Place ½ cup white sugar and 1 teaspoon cinnamon into a large bowl or a freezer bag and shake/stir to mix. Set aside.
  3. Open can of biscuits, separate biscuits and separate again into halves. My can had 8 biscuits so I wound up with 16 round dough circles in total.
  4. Use a knife or pizza cutter to cut each circle into 4 equal parts.
  5. Gently roll each slice into a circle shape and drop into sugar/cinnamon mixture- coating each circle well.
  6. Butter or spray your muffin tins well to avoid sticking.
  7. Place circles in prepared tin- filling only about ⅔ of the way up the sides as these will expand a lot in baking.
  8. You can sprinkle a little extra sugar mixture on the circles as you start stacking them up if you like.
  9. Once your tin is filled, place butter in a saucepan and melt over medium low heat.
  10. Add brown sugar and vanilla, stirring occasionally until the brown sugar dissolves.
  11. Pour melted caramel sauce over the top of each muffin.
  12. Bake for 15-20 minutes until dough is completely baked through and caramelized on top.
  13. Let sit for about 5 minutes to cool and remove from tin.
  14. Place on a serving dish and drizzle your confectioners sugar and milk mixture over the top before serving.
