#23_ Monkey Bread


Have you seen a monkey eat bread? I haven't! I don't even know that monkeys eat bread. So, why is this bread called MONKEY BREAD? Your guess is as good as mine.

Another name for this bread is PULL APART. That's because this bread is already buttered, and you don't need to do anything to it. You just go ahead and pull it apart and nibble like monkeys!

Use dough recipe for the Sticky Buns (entry #21).
Update: you can also use the Basic Sweet dough recipe, click here.

1) After the dough cycle is finished, take it out and divide into half.
2) Take one half portion of the dough and divide it into 20-24 pieces.
3) Shape into balls and dip each piece in melted butter then arrange them in a non- stick bundt pan. Do the same with the other half portion of the dough in another bundt pan.
4) Let rise for an hour or until double in bulk.
5) Put in a 350 degrees pre- heated oven and bake for 35 minutes.
This recipe makes 2 bundt pans of monkey breads.

Let cool for about 10 minutes before inverting onto a cooling rack or onto a serving platter.

For variation, after dipping the dough pieces in the melted butter, you can toss each piece in a mixture of cinnamon and sugar and arrange them in the bundt pan
