Monkey Bread

Yemp, these are Super Yummy, and so easy to make! (and its the same dough recipe as the Super-Duper Pizza Dough recipe coming soon!)


Monkey Bread

1 envelope Dry Yeast (2 1/4 tsp)
1 tsp. Sugar
3/4 c. luke warm Water
1 3/4 c. Flour
1/2 tsp. Salt


Mix the yeast, sugar and water. Let it bubble. Then add the flour and salt. Beat for 5 min.
Once the dough is made, pinch off little balls about 1 in. big.

Now you need to prepare 2 bowls:
Melt about 1/2 stick of butter in a bowl.
In another bowl mix 1/2 cup sugar, 1 Tbs. cinnamon, cloves, allspice, ginger, nutmeg or what ever spices you love to combine with cinnamon.
Dip the balls first into the melted butter, then roll in the sugar mixture. Place the sugar-coated balls in a 8 x 8 greased pan. Let the balls rise for 10 min. Bake at 350' for 10 min. Drizzle frosting on the warm Monkey Bread to let it melt into the cracks. Yummy!
Frosting
2 oz. Cream Cheese
2 TBS. Butter
1 tsp Milk
1 tsp Vanilla*
Powdered Sugar
Whip together the cream cheese and butter. Add the milk and the vanilla to make a little bit runnier. Slowly add powdered sugar to the mixture until you have the consistancy you want, or until it tastes good.
(*I added a 1/4 tsp. of Maple Extract to the frosting instead of Vanilla to make a good "breakfast" flavor to it also)
