Pull Apart Monkey Bread

Wednesday, November 26, 2008

I have no idea why it's called Monkey Bread. I've never made it before. This is my husbands recipe. I was making another dish with frozen bread dough today, and figured I might as well thaw two loaves.

I will DEFINITELY make this bread again. It is wonderful...and super easy. Sorry, I forgot to take pictures until I had already started!


1 loaf frozen bread dough
1 cube butter, melted
3/4 cup cinnamon sugar mix

Follow the directions on the dough and let it rise. Punch it down and roll it flat. Using a round bisquit cutter, cut out dough circles.

Dip in melted butter, then in cinnamon sugar.

Put a bread loaf pan on its end and stack the dough circles until all gone.

It should fill the loaf pan.

Let rise again, to the top of the loaf pan. Bake at 350 for about 20 minutes.

Be amazed at the power of yeast!

Let cool a few minutes, then turn the loaf pan upside down onto a plate.

The melted butter/cinnamon sugar glaze will cover the bread, and make it irrestible!

I have seen recipes that this can also me made with canned bisquits, like Grands. That might be alright, but I really like the flavor of the yeast bread.

I think I had too many pieces...I'm heading into a sugar coma as I type.
