Printable Recipe

1 cup warm water
2 T. oil
1 t. lemon juice
1 ½ t. salt
2 T. sugar
2 T. powdered milk
3 cups flour
2 t. yeast

In bread machine, place everything in the order recommended by manufacturer. Select dough setting (check after 5 minutes, add water or flour if necessary). When cycle is completed, turn dough onto floured surface. Pull it apart and form into 1” size balls.

Dip each ball into:
1/4 cup butter, melted

½ c. sugar
½ c. brown sugar
1 t. cinnamon

Place in a greased casserole dish or bundt pan. Dump any remaining butter or sugar mixture over the top. Let it rise for 15 minutes or so. Bake at 375 for 35-40 minutes. Dump it onto a plate and enjoy.

Holly's Note:
This is the same recipe for
Good White Bread. I know that most Monkey Bread recipes call for refrigerator biscuits and they're good too. We prefer using homemade bread. I don't often have refrigerator biscuits on hand anyway!

You can also do these the night before. Just pop the pan in the fridge overnight for a slow, second rise. In the morning, pull it out, let it sit at room temp for about 1/2 an hour and bake.

  1. That looks delicious. I haven't made it in a while. It's one of those cold weather things and cold weather is coming so I'll be making it soon.
