Overnight Monkey Bread
This Overnight Monkey Bread combines several buttery balls of bread coated in cinnamon and brown sugar! There isn't a better way to greet yourself Good Morning!
Servings: 6 People
For Bread Dough
- ⅔ (160 ml) Cup Milk full fat, warmed to about 110°F
- 1 tsp Yeast (use instant yeast, if not resting the dough overnight)
- 1 ½ tbsp Granulated Sugar
- 1 tsp Salt
- 1 ¾ (228 gms) Cups All purpose flour
- 2 tbsp Butter room temperature
- 1 Cup Butter Melted
- 1 Cup Brown Sugar (Light/dark both are fine, I used dark)
- 2 tsp Cinnamon
- ⅛ tsp Salt
Mix warm milk, yeast and sugar together in the bowl of stand mixer fitted with dough hook. Allow to sit for 4-5 mins.
Add a cup of flour and beat on low for 30-45 seconds. Now add the remaining flour, butter and salt. Increase the speed to medium and beat for 4-6 minutes. The dough will be sticky. (If you don't own a stand mixer, knead dough by hand.)
Dunk the balls:
Dip balls in the melted butter and then generously roll into cinnamon sugar, working with one ball at a time.
Melt remaining butter, salt and cinnamon sugar together in microwave till the sugar melts. Arrange the dough balls in the prepared bundt pan and pour the sauce over.
Cover and allow to rise in the refrigerator up to 8 hours or till the balls have risen well.
Second Rise and Bake:
When ready to bake, preheat the oven to 350°F (177°C) and bake for about 30-35 minutes or till the bread sounds hollow to tap and appears golden brown on top. Place a rimmed baking tray underneath the bundt pan to capture any drips of sauce in the oven.
If you see the bread is browning too quickly on the top, lightly cover with an aluminium foil. Cool the baked bread for 5-10 mins and then invert on the serving plate. Enjoy warm!
