Monkey Bread

Last night we had our "Ball" dinner and for dessert I decided to make these to carry on the ball theme. I've made them before but never in a muffin pan. The muffin size is perfect for the kids and portion sizing. The recipe was adapted from one on The Pickey Palate. I used my french bread recipe and used half for a loaf of bread and the other half for the monkey bread. I am sure you could use your favorite bread recipe or any Pillsbury dough.

Bread Dough
6 Tablespoons Sugar
3 Tablespoons Cinnamon
½ Cup butter, (1 stick)
½ Cup brown sugar

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. With kitchen scissors, cut dough ½ inch little cubes/balls. Combine sugar and cinnamon into a large bowl. Gently toss all pieces of dough into sugar mixture.
2. Spray a 12 count traditional muffin pan with non stick cooking spray. Divide bread pieces into the 12 muffin cups with or without paper liners. Set aside.
3. Place butter and brown sugar into a medium saucepan over medium heat. Stir until melted and bubbly. Pour evenly over each muffin cup. Place muffin pan on foil lined cookie sheet (mine bubbled over a bit in the oven).
4. Bake for 18-20 minute or until bread is cooked through. Remove from oven and let sit in pan for 5 minutes before transferring to cooling rack.
