Bread Machine Monkey Bread

I use a Wolfgang Puck Bread Machine and love to make different things in it, other than just homemade bread. I have made pizza dough, as well as Monkey Bread. If you haven’t tried Monkey Bread – you are missing out!

Bread Machine Monkey Bread

Dough Ingredients (Put in machine in order as below)

  • 1 cup water
  • 2 tablespoons margarine, softened
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup white sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons active dry yeast

Topping Ingredients

  • 1 cup margarine
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 cup raisins (optional)
  • 1/4 cup of chopped pecans (optional)

Sugar Mixture

  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 tablespoons cinnamon

Directions

  1. In the order of ingredients, place in bread machine. Make sure the yeast is on top of the dry mixture & doesn’t touch the liquid, until the bread machine is started.
  2. At the top of the powdered mixture, place the yeast. Make sure that no liquid comes in contact with the yeast. Select dough cycle and press start.
  3. When dough is complete, place dough on floured surface, knead and roll dough in to a long tube shape.
  4. Cut dough in to 1 inch bites.
  5. Drop one chunk at a time into the sugar mixture. Thoroughly coat dough pieces. I like to use a sifted spoon to get excess sugar off the rolled dough.
  6. Layer them loosely in a greased Bundt or tube pan, staggering layers so you’re plopping each dough chunk over a space between two below.
  7. Chop Pecans
  8. In a medium saucepan on low heat, wisk together topping ingredients until smooth. Remove from heat.
  9. Pour topping mixture over coated rolls in baking pan.
  10. Bake in a preheated 375 degree F (190 degree C) oven for 20 to 25 minutes or till golden brown.
  11. Remove from oven & enjoy!

    Hi!

    I just wanted to let you know that after having this on my Pintrest board for the longest time, I finally used it for Christmas morning. It was a huge hit and went directly on my family’s “make again” list. Thank you for sharing it!

    Oh, and Tracey, you DO have to either divide them or use a big pan. I used my big bundt cake pan and it filled it all the way up. You have to consider that there are 3 cups of flour and yeast doubles nearly doubles that even while it’s cooking…plus add all the fluid from the butter and sugar? You need a big pan and place it on a cookie sheet if you have any doubts at all

    Thank you again, I hope you had a wonderful Christmas!

    Well I tried these today and was not impressed. They are ok, but I would not make them again. They boiled over in my oven for starters! Yikes :negative:

    @Tracey, What size of pan did you use? It sounds like your pan was entirely too small. Try compacting your dough and try a larger pan. You can always taste the topping and season sweeter to your likings. ;)
