A delicious and beautiful variation on your typical dinner rolls, Monkey Bread can function as a side and a centerpiece! Recipe from our mother, Nancy!
1/2 cup water
2 teaspoons yeast
2 teaspoons sugar
Combine and let stand for 5 minutes.
1 cup hot water
1/2 cup butter
1/4 cup sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
2 1/2 cups flour
Combine in a large bowl, then beat for 5 minutes. Add yeast mixture, then add 3 more cups of flour. Let rise and punch down twice.
Melt 1/3 cup butter in bundt pan. Roll out dough and cut into circles. Dip each circle in the melted butter, then stack them on their sides around entire pan. Let the dough rise to top of the pan, then bake at 350 degrees for 25-35 minutes. Invert onto serving plate and serve immediately. We love this with homemade jam!
