Cinnamon Sugar Pull-Apart Muffins

Layers of buttery cinnamon sugar goodness packed into a muffin.

Ingredients

1
can (11 oz) Pillsbury™ refrigerated crusty French loaf
1/4
cup butter
1/2
cup sugar
1
teaspoon cinnamon
1/4
teaspoon nutmeg

Directions

  • 1 Preheat oven to 350°F and spray a muffin tin with cooking spray.
  • 2 In a skillet, brown the butter over medium-low heat for about 5 minutes. The butter will turn a caramel color and smell nutty. (Watch it carefully because it can quickly go from browned to burned.) Set aside to cool.
  • 3 In a small bowl combine the sugar, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Set aside for later.
  • 4 Open the bread dough and place on a cutting board. Using a sharp knife, make a small slit to score the dough at the middle point of the roll, so that there are two equal sections. Then score each section again in the middle. Repeat, scoring sections at the halfway point, until you have 31 slits in the dough. Using a very sharp serrated knife, slice the dough into discs using these score marks as guides.
  • 5 Place all the slices on a large sheet of wax or parchment paper and flatten with a rolling pin. Brush each disc of dough with the melted butter. Dip buttered slices into the cinnamon sugar mixture. Add any remaining butter and sugar mixture to the prepared muffin tin.
  • 6 Stack 5-6 pieces of dough on top of each other. Slice each stack in half and place both sections cut side down in a muffin tin. Repeat with remaining dough until all cups of the muffin tin are filled.
  • 7 Place muffin tin onto a large rimmed cookie sheet to catch any sugar or butter overflow. Bake 20-25 minutes or until golden brown. Allow muffins to cool for 10 minutes in the pan and then enjoy!

Cinnamon Sugar Pull-Apart Muffins

As prepared by Girl Who Ate Everything,

Like your favorite sweet pull-apart loaf, these individual muffins have layers of buttery cinnamon sugar to peel off and nibble to your heart's content.


Sunday mornings are a little less fast paced around here — the only morning of the week that I actually have time to indulge in a breakfast besides cereal. So I thought, why not try these Cinnamon Sugar Pull-Apart Muffins for a Sunday morning treat?

One of life's greatest pleasures is pulling warm bread apart. Mmm ... these muffins have layers of warm buttery bread sprinkled with a cinnamon sugar mixture. Each muffin has intricate layers just begging to be devoured.

 

Pillsbury Simply Rustic French Bread

You could totally make your own bread dough to start. But why? I used a package of Pillsbury refrigerated French Bread dough to start out these muffins fast and easy.


 

Make slits in bread dough.

I made small markings in the dough so I would know where to cut and to make sure all of the pieces were uniform in size.

 

Make discs of dough.

Using a very sharp knife, cut each slit into a slice of dough.

 

Roll out each disc.

Roll out each disc of dough on wax paper. The more surface area we have the more butter and cinnamon sugar we can incorporate into these.

 

Brush dough discs with melted butter.

Brush each disc with browned butter. Browned butter has a nutty taste and adds so much more than just regular melted butter. Once you've had browned butter you'll try to find a way to use it in everything.

 

Sprinkle with cinnamon sugar.

Sprinkle the dough generously with your cinnamon sugar mixture. The mixture seeps into all of the cracks and crevasses when baking, making some major magic happen.

 

Stack the sugared dough discs and cut the stack in half.

Stack about 5-6 discs together and cut them down the middle. We want to put the cut side down here so that the pretty edges are showing up top.

 

Cinnamon Sugar Pull-Apart Muffins ready to eat!

After they've baked you have layers and layers of cinnamon sugar bread all in one little muffin. It's really hard to eat just one!
