Apple Butter Monkey Bread and a Musselman's Giveaway!


.  And the giveaways keep on comin.'

How fun, huh?!  And you can only thank yourselves because the more support and views LSM receives, the more opportunities I get to share some wonderful products with everyone.  Win-win situation if I do say so!

So what do I have for you today?  Well, you guessed it.  Apple Butter*.  But not just any apple butter paired with just any recipe.  But Musselman's Apple Butter paired with a caramelly mixture poured atop fluffy cinnamon-sugar biscuits.  A.k.a a caramel apple-like Monkey Bread.  GAH!


But maybe I should back up a bit and give you some deets [that would mean details in my world] about how this all started.

About a month ago, I received an e-mail asking if I'd like to receive a kit from Musselmans filled with a surprise kitchen gadget, a jar of apple butter, and various recipes using the infamous product.  Uhh, heck yeah!  I mean really, who wouldn't?


I received my lovely package in the mail and so here we are.  Baking away with Musselman's.

I'd actually never used apple butter before aside from the one time I bought some from a local farmer's market and proceeded to make cheesecake bars.  But not gonna lie, my bars were just average. Nothing really special, hence, I never made them again.  So going into this project I was probably a bit skeptical.  Shame on me.


Like I said previously, this monkey bread is pure heaven.  And you would never guess that this immaculate creation took a whopping 10 minutes to put together.  No joke.  Impressive, flavorful, and a sure crowd pleaser.  Couldn't ask for much more, right?!

So now that I've gabbed away about how wonderful apple butter truly is and that monkey bread is a must-make recipe [especially for beginner bakers or anyone in a rush], let's get into this giveaway.  Remember that package I received?

WELL YOU COULD WIN ONE!
And just to recap, here's what you'd receive:

1 jar of Musselman's Apple Butter
3 recipe cards (I received Monkey Bread, Apple Butter Marinade for Chicken, and Sweet Potato Apple Butter Casserole)

So all you have to do to get a chance to win this fun and unique package is leave a comment at the bottom of this post telling me about your favorite apple butter recipe.  Simple as that!  You have until November 11, 2012, to make your entry, so why don't you go ahead and just enter now?  And like most giveaways, you can gain additional entries by following Musselman's on Facebook, Twitter, or Pinterest.  Just be sure to leave extra comments for each one you do.


So now that you've entered this delicious giveaway, and I know you're drooling from these pictures, head on over to Musselman's recipe page for the Apple Butter Monkey Bread recipe as well as other apple butter recipes!  

Get bakin'!  .

*For those of you who don't know what apple butter is, it's very similar to [but thicker than] apple sauce but has a much deeper flavor and color.  It's a non-dairy product typically used for spreading on toast or baking.  You can typically find apple butter in the jam/jelly aisles of your grocery store.

  1. Oh my gosh! That monkey bread looks delicious! I've never used apple butter in a recipe aside for topping my toast or oatmeal, but I'd like to try the apple butter pumpkin pie recipe on the Musselman's recipe website!

  2. I used to waitress at The Apple Farm in San Luis Obispo, Ca. Their trademarks were the hot apple dumpling dessert and their apple butter. I used to spread that apple butter on everything - - english muffins, fresh apple slices, cornbread - you name it. So delish.

  3. These soft apple butter cookies rock http://allrecipes.com/Recipe/Soft-Apple-Butter-Delights/Detail.aspx?prop24=RD_RelatedRecipes Of course they are hard to make in my house, because my husband goes through the apple butter so fast. :) At Musselman's site, I loved the Sweet Potato Casserole recipe. :)
