Monkey Bread Cupcakes with Maple Glaze

Whenever I hear the words Monkey Bread, I get extremely happy because who doesn't love it?!

Here's a really simple recipe to indulge yourself in.


1 1/2c Water
2 1/4 tsp Instant yeast
2 tsp Salt
1/2 cup sugar
3 TBSP Whole Milk
4 1/2 cup Flour

I put the water, yeast, salt and sugar in the mixer and mixed it for a few seconds then waited for a minute to get bubbly.  Added the flour and started mixing on low while streaming in the milk.  Mix on medium for 4-5 minutes to develop that wonderful gluten goodness!  Cover the bowl and let it double in size.  Once its doubled,  turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface or silpat.  Cut the dough into strips and then the strips into little bite-sized pieces, (about one inch).  

Dip each piece into some melted butter, for 24 cupcakes I used 4 TBSP.
Then toss them in a mixture of 1 cup sugar and 4 TBSP cinnamon.
Place 3-4 pieces of the dough into each spot in the cupcake tray.  Cover with plastic wrap and allow to rise and double in size again. 

Bake at 350 for 15-17 minutes or until golden brown.

As soon as you pull them out of the oven, drizzle the glaze on top and let cool.  


3 cups Powdered Sugar
2 tsp Vanilla Extract
2 TBSP Milk
2 TBSP Melted Butter
1 1/2 TBSP Maple Syrup

Place all ingredients in a bowl and simply mix.  Cover with plastic wrap until ready to use!  

This is the easiest and delicious glaze!
