Why I Love This Recipe
During the holiday season, I love preparing easy and delicious breakfasts. The rest of the year, cold cereal is as good as it gets. But there’s something about a sweet, home-cooked breakfast that makes the holidays even more cozy.
These Pull Apart Cinnamon Roll Muffins come together quickly and take just about 15 minutes to bake. You could also make them the night before, covering tightly with foil and pop them into the oven in the morning.
How To Make Cinnamon Roll Muffins
- Preheat the oven and grease a pan of regular sized muffin cups.
- Whisk together milk, eggs, cinnamon, and vanilla.
- Open the package of cinnamon rolls and set the icing cup aside. Cut each piece into 8 pieces, then drop them into the bowl and coat with the egg mixture.
- Divide the pieces of cinnamon roll into the muffin cups. There should be 5-7 pieces per cup. Spoon extra egg mixture over the tops and drizzle maple syrup over each muffin.
- Bake in the preheated oven until golden brown and fully set. Set aside to cool slightly
- Heat icing for 7-10 seconds, just enough to make the icing smooth and pliable.
- Let the muffins cool completely, then serve with your favorite breakfast foods, or as a dessert treat.
These muffins are the ideal sweet accompaniment to any brunch spread. Here are a few ideas for what to serve them with:
- Crockpot Breakfast Casserole
- Breakfast Quesadillas
- Sausage and Potato Breakfast Hash
- Scrambled eggs, Omelets, sausage, bacon
- Fruit salad
Store cooled muffins in an airtight container at room temperature for 2-3 days, after which they will begin to lose their freshness.
- Try your best to cut each piece the same size. This helps the muffins to cook evenly.
- If you don’t want to include the maple syrup, simply omit it.
- If the icing isn’t sweet enough or if it is too thick, try thinning it with. a little milk.
