How To Make Monkey Bread Muffins
Go bananas over these monkey bread muffins that are delightfully soft, covered in cinnamon, and drizzled with sugar glaze.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Butter a muffin tin, set aside.
In a large mixing bowl whisk together flour, 3 tablespoons granulated sugar, baking powder, and salt.
Pour buttermilk, ⅓ cup milk and melted butter into the flour mixture. Stir with a fork or clean hands just until the mixture comes together. Don’t overmix.
Pour ½ cup granulated sugar into a medium container that has a lid to cover. Scoop dough out about 1 even teaspoon at a time and drop into the container in an even layer, working in batches.
Then cover the container with a lid and shake to coat. Drop 6 sugar-coated dough balls into each muffin cup. Repeat this process until all muffin cups are filled.
Whisk together 6 tablespoons melted butter, brown sugar, and cinnamon until well combined. Pour about 1 scant tablespoon brown sugar mixture evenly over each muffin.
Place muffin tin on a cookie sheet and bake 18 to 19 minutes until golden. Allow to cool for 5 minutes in muffin tin before removing muffins.
In a mixing bowl whisk together powdered sugar and milk until well blended. Pour mixture into a piping bag or Ziploc bag, snip a small tip off the end of the bag, and drizzle glaze over each muffin.
