[Collegiate Meals] How to Make Monkey Bread


Step 5: Demold and Serve

Picture of Demold and Serve
Once you've removed the monkey bread from the oven - allow to cool until you can keep your hand on the pan/bowl without being burned. Remove your cup (if applicable) and place a plate on top and flip over. Allow gravity to pull your bread down and remove your pan/bowl. If a few balls refuse to drop, fear not - these are victory snacks for the hungry cook.

Monkey bread is best served near napkins. Monkey bread fears large crowds, only because too much monkey bread is almost enough when it comes to feeding hordes of monkey bread loving guests.
what is the gooyness on it at the end?
well thats the glaze... you only put half of the glaze in the middle the rest goes on top
That's the caramelized cinnamon sugar with butter that formed while in the oven. When you've finished putting all the coated balls of dough into the pan, you drizzle the remaining butter over the dough in the pan, and then sprinkle the rest of the cinnamon and sugar over the top.

While it's in the oven, the butter melts the sugar into the butter and makes a delicious, sticky caramelized glaze at the bottom of the pan. Once you flip the monkey bread out of the pan, that glaze is now on top of the monkey bread. It's truly the best part!

I made this for years when my husband and I were in college. It was delicious!

Definitely gotta make this for my family. They buy the stuff from a bakery out of town. But I bet they'd love it if I made some. Hehe.

I say this only because I have an ungodly high metabolism. I say after its completely finished, mix up a semi-sweet batter and deep fry that bad boy. Dear Lord the thought of that is givin me chubbage....

does the dough contain yeast? i can't get the pre-made dough here and I usually make my own pizza dough from scratch.

Mmmm... Sounds great. I'll have to give this one a shot. Thanks!
Here's an idea, after making the monkey bread try drizzling a cinnamon roll icing over it 2 1/2 ounces cream cheese, softened, approximately 1/4 cup 3 tablespoons milk 5 1/2 ounces powdered sugar, approximately 1 1/2 cups

Hey now, any recipe that begins with "melt 1 stick of butter" has got to be good :)
"melt 1 2 16 sticks of butter" has got to be good :D
