This is my last post of 2015 and I think I'm ending the year on a really high note. I don't exaggerate when I proclaim this Monkey Bread is absolutely A-M-A-Z-I-N-G! I'm kicking myself for never trying to make it before. Dare I say I may even prefer it over cinnamon rolls because it's so simple to make and so fun to eat.
I've seen versions that use store bought bread dough but it's so much more delicious when you make it from scratch yourself. This recipe from Cook's Country is easy to follow and would be great for the little ones to help with.
The yeasted dough is divided in to small pieces, rolled in melted butter, tossed in brown sugar and cinnamon and finally baked in a bundt pan. The brown sugar and butter melts in to a yummy, gooey caramel that perfectly coats the bread. How perfect would it be for breakfast or brunch?
For those of you who want a smaller bread you can easily cut the recipe in half and bake in a small bundt pan. That's what I did for the monkey bread in these pictures.
Wishing everyone a wonderful new year! Happy 2016!!!!
