Monkey Bread

Monkey Bread

I think you may know, or even if you don’t, I like to make breakfast. I usually make it on the weekends for the fam.¬† In my humble opinion breakfast is the most fun meal of the day. Who doesn’t like a meal that has so many dishes that are almost like dessert.

One of my favorite “breakfasts (desserts)” is monkey bread. This monkey bread isn’t one of the canned biscuits or frozen rolls recipes. This is the real deal. Full on tasty bread balls covered in gooey cinnamony goodness.

Yes, you have to make a yeast dough, but don’t fret, its easy! Only problem with this recipe is that its hard to find time to make it in the morning. So took a idea from¬†Artisan Bread in Five Minutes a Day and put it in the fridge the night before after I make them in to sugary balls of goodness and deposit them into the bundt pan. This allows for a slow rise, and in the morning the next day I take it out a little early and let them warm up on the counter. Pop it in the oven and you are good to go. Trust me it works and cuts down on the hassle of making something like this in the morning!

    Lee! I’m so excited. This is my husbands favorite food, hands down. I’ve tried so many variations, he likes them all- but I don’t. They’re never as good as the ones my mother made when I was a kid. I can’t wait to try this recipe.

    Lee–this looks so amazing! Just like my mom used to make, only without the refrigerator dough. Do you feel like you need the glaze on top, or does the “bread” have enough flavors on its own? In any case, I hope I can try it soon.

    I’m enjoying warm gooey, delicious monkey bread right now! Thanks for the recipe. I mixed the dough in the bread machine on the dough setting until the first rise was over. Also, I didn’t have unsalted butter, so I used salted butter and only put 1 tsp of salt into the dough. It turned out great!
