Yield: Serves 10
Prep Time: 30 minutes
Inactive Time: 1 hour, 30 minutes
Cook Time: 45 minutes
- 1 cup milk, warm
- 1/3 cup water, warm
- 1/4 cup brown sugar
- 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
- 2 teaspoons instant yeast
- 3 1/4 cups all-purpose flour, plus extra for work surface
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 4 strips bacon, cooked and crumbled
Brown Sugar Coating
- 1 cup dark brown sugar
- 2 teaspoons Sunspun ground cinnamon
- 1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted
- In a small bowl, combine the warm milk, warm water, brown sugar, melted butter, and instant yeast. Whisk together until everything is well combined. Cover and let sit for about 10 minutes.
- In a bowl of a stand mixer, combine the flour and salt. Add the wet mixture to the flour mixture, and with a dough hook, knead until a smooth dough forms (about 10 minutes).
- Transfer the dough to a lightly floured bowl. Cover with a kitchen towel and let sit in a warm place for about an hour or until doubled in size.
- While the dough is resting, make the brown sugar coating. In a medium bowl, combine the dark brown sugar and ground cinnamon. Whisk until well combined. Add the melted butter to a separate bowl and set aside.
- Preheat your oven to 350F. Grease a Bundt pan with cooking spray or butter.
- Turn out the proofed dough onto a lightly floured surface. Cut the dough into small pieces and roll them into balls. Dip each ball into the melted butter, then roll it in the brown sugar coating.
- Sprinkle 1/3 of the bacon into the greased Bundt pan. Place the coated balls into the pay in a layer. Top with more bacon and another layer of dough. Once all the dough balls are in the pan, sprinkle with the rest of the bacon overtop.
- Bake the monkey bread for 40-45 minutes, or until the top is golden brown and the bread is cooked through.
- Remove the monkey bread from the oven and let it cool for 5-10 minutes in the pan.
- Invert the pan onto a serving platter to release the monkey bread. Serve warm, and enjoy!
