    This sweet bread is super-easy to make. Small pieces of scone dough are coated in cinnamon sugar, then popped into a muffin tin, drizzled with a buttery brown sugar and baked to perfection. Enjoy for breakfast or top with custard for dessert.

    These were lovely, although more like cakes than bread. They had a lovely crispy sugar top and fluffy inside. Only gave 4 stars as there was a lot of waste after (butter and sugar drizzle mix) plus the cinnamon and sugar mix but ive stored this for next time I make them. If you dont plan on making this again id say only use half the butter and dark sugar as there is lots left over.  -  21 Dec 2011


    This is my recipe- 2 things: Cooking spray is missing from the ingredient list and you will spoon about 2 TBS of the butter/brown sugar mixture over each muffin. The original recipe was also edited- you should fill each muffin cup until full (8-10 pieces) of biscuits, not the 4-5 pieces as listed here. Enjoy!  -  16 Apr 2010  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I make this with cupcake liners and put a scoop of apple pie filling in bottom then roll the dough in sugar cinnamon and apple pie spice....then I add the brown sugar and butter over the top. My grandsons love this  -  10 May 2010  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
