For Trisha Yearwood's Monkey Bread Muffins

GMA Recipes
Difficulty: Easy
Cook Time: min

"Monkey bread is usually baked in a large tube pan and served by pulling off a "lump" of bread at a time. My niece Ashley tried this idea for making monkey bread in individual servings by downsizing the biscuit pieces and using our Hot Maple Syrup in the mix. The muffins are a lot cuter and less messy!"

-Trisha Yearwood


  • 3 cups granulated sugar
  • 2 cups light brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons dark corn syrup
  • 2 cups water
  • 2 teaspoons maple flavoring
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon almond extract
  • Cooking Directions

    Mix the sugars, syrup, water, maple flavoring, and extracts in a medium saucepan and cook over medium-high heat until the sugars dissolve. Bring the mixture to a boil, then reduce the heat to medium and simmer for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally, as the syrup reaches the correct consistency.

    Serve warm over pancakes or waffles. Store any leftover syrup in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks.

    Change it up by making bacon waffles. Cut bacon to fit each waffle grid. Close the cover and bake for 1 minute before adding waffle batter. Scramble some eggs and you have a complete breakfast.

    Makes 4 cups
