I made Monkey bread for the first time. I really do not know why it is called Monkey Bread- it is such a weird name! Can you imagine little monkeys picking at it like they do each other. I think that is why they named it that!! It was super good though! Joel would have liked more sugar and butter but the boys sure gobbled it up!
What i did was use my white bread recipe, then i made a big fat snake. The snake was ripped into hunks and rolled in melted butter, then rolled in a brown sugar cinnamon mixture. Sounds so good eh! After that they were dumped in my new loaf pan and baked like normal bread!!
I just want to say that it really was as good as it looked!
Next time i will make the pieces bite size instead of 5 bite size and i think Joel will like them better and pour some melted butter and a bit of cream over the top when i bake them! Yum.
I want these to be for breakfast, that would make me so happy!! To do this i think i can freeze the dough unrisen and pull it out let it thaw, and rise, and bake! Easy-peasy!!
