Pumpkin Monkey Bread Muffins #SundaySupper

by jerseygirl on September 24, 2017 · 5 comments

It’s that time of year where fall has begun. I’m loving the cooler night- time weather, football on Sundays and watching my son’s high school soccer games. There’s apple picking, hayrides, bonfires and of course pumpkin season. Even though I think the pumpkin spice thing is sometimes overdone, I do look forward to baking with pumpkin.

This week Sunday Supper is featuring easy pumpkin recipes. I decided to make a batch of monkey bread muffins and add a little pumpkin to them. I also pulled out the jar of pumpkin spice even though I refuse to put it in my latte. Pumpkin spice belongs in monkey bread, muffins, and pumpkin breads but it is not going in my pasta, sausage or  stuffing.

Take a look at what the other taste makers have made with pumpkin below. Have I said that I love easy recipes?

Enjoy a little pumpkin!

This monkey bread is made with packaged biscuit dough and canned pumpkin. It doesn't get easier than that.
Ingredients
  • baking spray
  • ⅓ cup butter
  • ⅔ cup light brown sugar
  • ½ cup pumpkin puree
  • 2 teaspoons pumpkin spice
  • 1 (16 ounce) can flaky biscuit dough
  • ⅓ cup white sugar
  • maple syrup for drizzling if desired
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Spray 6- cup large muffin tin with baking spray. Make sure sides and bottom are coated very well.
  3. In a medium sized saucepan, melt butter on medium heat. Add brown sugar, pumpkin purée, pumpkin spice and vanilla. Whisk until smooth. Remove from heat.
  4. Break the biscuit dough up into small pieces and mix in a large bowl with the white sugar.
  5. Place ⅓ of the pumpkin mixture into the bottom of the muffin cups. Arrange half of the biscuit pieces on top. Layer in ⅓ more of the pumpkin mixture. Top with the remaining biscuits and the remaining pumpkin mixture.
  6. Bake for 14 to 16 minutes or until brown on top.
  7. Cool for 10 minutes. Slide a knife around sides of muffin pan so removal is easier.
  8. Drizzle with syrup before serving if desired. I like mine without but some people like monkey bread super sweet.

Ha, ha…it sounds like a lot of us from #SundaySupper are a little over the “pumpkin spice” wave but still love a good pumpkin recipe. What a cute idea to make monkey bread muffins. I bet any kid would love these as an after school snack.

Love the do-ability factor of scrumptious flavors and textures…Pumpkin and maple syrup are a match made in Heaven!
