Cake Batter Monkey Bread {TWC Linky Party #84 - Breakfast Breads}

(BREAKFAST Breads: Donuts - Muffins - Coffee Cakes)

I promise, I am still alive. It's been a WHOLE week since I posted last. Crazy for ME, I know. I can't really say I've been too busy, just lazy!!! But, I am also planning a HUGE Graduation Party for my twins! OH MY, I can't believe they are finished with school in 2 days, YES, 2 days. They graduate on Friday and the BIG Celebration party is Saturday. We are so excited (no tears yet). I am just SO SO excited about this new adventure for them, it's too hard to be sad (I think I will just cry LATER after they move to Missouri for college, until then it's HAPPY HAPPY HAPPY!!!).

But today, we are sharing Breakfast Breads in our Linky Party, everyone loves a good muffins, a savory bread or just a good old fashion coffee cake. I am sharing a delicious new money bread recipe. Which ALL of my kids enjoyed and would love to have again and again. That's when I know it's a good recipe, yes this will be in my next family cookbook.
Could we really make Monkey Bread even better? I have my favorite Monkey Bread recipe and I really never thought another recipe would even compare, well I have found it's match. Cake Batter Monkey Bread or as my son calls this "A Cupcake on Steroids". Don't get me wrong he LOVED it, but it does taste like a cupcake, and it's AWESOME!!!

Cupcakes for breakfast, why not! LIVE-A-LITTLE

Cake Batter Monkey Bread
recipe found at Chef-in-Training, originally from Pillsbury

1 can refrigerated biscuits
1 cup dry cake mix (funfetti is nice, but plain vanilla or whatever kind you have on hand)
3 tbsp brown sugar
4 tbsp butter, melted
1/2 tsp vanilla
Vanilla Frosting
Sprinkles (add some to the batter too if you are not using funfetti)

Preheat oven to 375. Spray muffin tin generously with cooking spray or use cupcake wrappers. We used the JUMBO muffin tins and they were wonderful, plenty for each person to enjoy.
Melt the butter in a small bowl and add the vanilla; mix well and set aside. In another small bowl, combine the cake mix and brown sugar. Cut each biscuit into four pieces.

Dip pieces in the butter/vanilla mixture, coating completely. Using a fork, remove from the butter mixture and coat thoroughly in the cake mix mixture. Place four coated pieces into each muffin tin (for a regular size muffin tin) or place about 6 pieces each in the jumbo muffin tins. Repeat until all tins are full.

Bake for approximately 12-15 minutes or until lightly golden and centers appear set. Allow to cool in pan for about 5 minutes before gently removing them. Place a dollop of frosting on the tops of the still-warm muffins and top with sprinkles.
