Recipe Ingredients for monkey bread

3 1/4 cups all purpose flour
1 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt
1 cup milk
1/4 cup sugar
1/3 cup water
2 tablespoons butter
3/4 cup brown sugar
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup butter
1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1 cup pecans

Recipe Directions for monkey bread

  1. Preheat your oven to 200 degrees F, then turn the oven off and keep the door closed.

  2. Generously grease a bundt pan with a nice schmear of soft butter.

  3. Whisk together the warm milk, water and sugar until dissolved. Add the butter and then the yeast, stirring and place in a warm place until yeast has bloomed.

  4. Sift together the salt and flour, before making a well in the center of the bowl. Pour the yeast-milk- butter-sugar mixture into the depression, and stir, using a wooden spoon, until a shaggy, clingy dough begins to form. Turn out onto a well-floured board and knead for a good 7-10 minutes, until elastic, smooth and hefty.

  5. Dump into a large buttered bowl, cover with plastic wrap, and place in the warm-but-off oven for one hour.

  6. Once risen, remove dough from the oven and dump out onto a well-floured surface. Gently shape and pat the dough into a free-form square, and cut the square into quarters. Then cut each quarter into at least ten smaller pieces. Roll each piece of dough gently, until rounded, but don?t compress or squish too much air out of them.

  7. With your fingers, pinch and grind together the two sugars and cinnamon until uniform in color and clump-free. Roll each dough ball in the melted butter and then in the sugar mixture. Drop into the greased bundt pan, and continue, filling in any gaps and varying the size of the balls, dropping pecans in at random intervals. If you have any leftover butter, pour over the top, and scatter any remaining sugar (especially the inevitable buttery clumps) over the whole thing. Cover with plastic wrap and let rise for 50 more minutes in a warm, calm place and then remove plastic and bake in a preheated 350 degree F oven for 30-35 minutes, until top is golden brown. Remove from oven, cool for 5 minutes (or until caramel stops bubbling), then turn out onto a large platter or plate. Cool for 10 more minutes, then serve warm.
