We love having Butterscotch Rolls for Christmas and the 4th of July, but occasionally I’ve been known to forget to start the rise the night before. My bad. So, I was ever so glad to see these mini muffins. My excellent sous chef has been staying here for a few days, so it seemed like the perfect opportunity to experiment.
These individual monkey bread servings are perfect hot out of the oven, or 24 hours later. Caramelized bite size pieces of breakfast heaven. Enjoy! We’re heading to the coast for a few days, Covid virus permitting, and I think this would be a fun treat to take along.
- 2 8 count cans of buttermilk biscuits
- 2 Cups sugar
- 2 Tablespoons cinnamon
- 2 sticks of butter
- 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
- 1 box butterscotch pudding, not instant
- pre-heat your oven to 350 F
- cut each biscuit into six pieces
- Put 2 Cups sugar and 2 Tablespoons cinnamon in a bag and mix, add the biscuit quarters and shake them until all the quarters are fully coated
- Place 6 or so biscuit pieces in each muffin cup
- Sprinkle with some butterscotch pudding
- Melt 2 sticks butter, and 1/2 Cup brown sugar over low-medium heat, until fully melted and the sugar has dissolved resulting in a gorgeous golden brown, dark caramel color (stir frequently)
- Pour the butter mixture over the muffin cups until each is about 3/4 filled
- Place in the pre-heated oven and bake for about 25 minutes
- Remove from the oven and immediately turn over onto a platter so that all the ooey gooey caramelized butter sugary goodness tips out and covers the monkey bread bites in their caramelized goodness.
- If you have some cute little ramekins or serving dishes, place a monkey bread cup into each one and use a spoon to drizzle more caramelized sauce over each cup.
- I found several recipes like this on line so I’m not really able to give credit to anyone in particular.
* From the Recipe Box:
I didn’t tip these out of the muffin pan immediately; I wanted the caramel sauce to firm up a bit so it would stick to the muffins a little better.
We always vote after eating something new and this was voted a winner.
Is there anything better than a tradition?
