Pumpkin Caramel Monkey Bread Muffins

I just figured out what you should make for breakfast on Thanksgiving.  These little muffins were so good!  Before I moved to Iowa I had never heard of Monkey Bread before.  Now, I see it all over the place.  I saw a similar recipe to this from Pillsbury, and this is what I turned it into.  Monkey Bread Muffins, covered in a Pumpkin Caramel Sauce. 

I made these yesterday for my 6 year old, and he couldn’t stop saying how good they were.  At first he wasn’t excited.  He said he liked Cinnamon Roll Pancakes so much, why did I have to try something new?  Then he tried them…..”Mommy, you are such a good cooker!  How do you make so many things I love?  Now I won’t be able to decide what I want?”

These come together quickly, so you can get that Turkey cooking.  Why not wake up to wonderful pumpkin flavor, and have it all through the day!  I used 1 tube of biscuits, and it made 8 giant muffins.  You could easily double this recipe if you were feeding a crowd.  

I hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving!  Enjoy the time with the ones that you love!!  See you again on Friday.  

Pumpkin Caramel Monkey Bread Muffins
Adapted from Pillsbury

1/3 cup sugar
1 tsp cinnamon
¼ tsp nutmeg
¼ tsp all spice
¼ tsp ground cloves
1 tub Pillsbury Grand Flaky Biscuits
2/3 cup brown sugar
½ cup butter
1/3 cup pumpkin puree

Heat oven to 350 degrees.  Spray muffin tin with non-stick spray, or use liners.

Open tube of biscuits, and separate.  Using a kitchen scissors cut each biscuit into quarters.  In a zip lock bag mix together sugar and spices.  Add 6 pieces of biscuit at a time into the sugar and shake to coat.  Remove and place 4 pieces (3 if you want normal sized muffins), into each muffin tin. 

In a sauce pan melt butter, brown sugar and pumpkin together.  Bring to a boil and cook for 1 minute, while stirring.  Reserve about ½ cup of the caramel sauce for later.  Pour the rest of the sauce over the muffins. 

Bake for 15 minutes for large muffins (probably closer to 12 minutes for smaller muffins).  Let cool for a couple minutes before removing from the pan.  Drizzle with the reserved caramel sauce.

I love a good pull apart bread of any kind. The caramel sauce in this sounds so awesome!

I love making monkey bread this way. I leanred to use refrigerator biscuits in 7th grade cooking class. I'm ashamed to say that I've never even made monkey bread homemade because it's so easy with these. This sound like a wonderful flavor combo! Happy Thanksgiving Erin!

Oh man, deadly! I had monkey bread for the first time at a brunch recently, and the idea of making it as muffins is just too great! :)

Happy Thanksgiving!

OMG OMG OMG...these are sooo cute and easy! Also, regarding the green bean casserole. I LOVE it too; however, I need fresh beans, home made soup and crunchy onions. It's my favorite thing on the menu, usually :)

I like cinnamon roll pancakes a lot too, but would have no trouble passing them up for this! You've possibly made the most perfect monkey bread adaptation. Pumpkin, caramel, sugared biscuits. I don't know how this gets better! Wishing you a great Thanksgiving :)

I love it when Dudette says that I'm a good cooker! It's definitely the most important seal of approval. I'd also say that your little guy has incredibly good taste. These do look delicious. Decadently so. I'm sure that the pancakes won't be missed at all.

Oh yummy! My mom makes some fabulous monkey bread. Your son is going to be one heart breaker if he keeps giving lines like those.

I love reading your blog as much as I learn new words or should I say old words used in new contexts such as "mom, being a good cooker..." I have a list of those from my toddler too. If your little one loved them...I but it won't be different in our household. Will make a batch real soon. Thanks for the post!

Yum!! My first reaction when I saw the title and photo was a little voice in my head that screamed "I want I want I want!" These look amazing. And that is so cute what your son said about making so many things he loves. Happy Thanksgiving!!

Ooh, that looks delicious--like bread pudding in muffin form!

Oh my word do these ever sound amazing! I love that they're muffins, maybe it would help me with portion control since usually I can't stop myself from eating an entire monkey bread if I make it :)
