  1. i have all the ingredients except yeast, and i’ve made this monkey bread
    exactly from allrecipes before with yeast, so i think it’s important, but
    can i use baking powder instead?

  2. Nothing lazy about using a bread machine to do your dough! I have two
    machines (one I purchased over 5 years ago for only $50 and the other was
    given to me as it was never used by the original owner) and I make a lot of
    breads, cinnamon rolls, sweet rolls, bread bowls, pita bread, bagels, etc.
    Bread machines makes it just easier and you can invest more time doing
    other things in the kitchen or spend more quality time with your family. It
    was awfully rude to call someone lazy for using a bread machine. There’s
    many reason to use a bread machine!! 

  3. I tried this recipe today and it was delicious! It’s a keeper in our
    family. I didn’t add raisins or nuts, just made it plain since none of my
    kids like nuts in desserts. 🙂 

  4. O.m.g. absolutely love it.i did this long time back without any bread
    machine(don’t have it)..looking at this, even this looks so very
    delish.thank u guys:-)

    In matter fact, they’re 3 Americas, you forgot central America, we don’t
    belong neither north America nor south America

  6. The only thing im thinking is if it’ll be possible to make it this time
    around the year., coz its so cold the yeast dough might take hours to rise
    &its to be risen twice..

  7. “Here is a recipe for a bread machine, though it can easily be done in the
    conventional, muscle building way. You use the dough only setting and do
    the rest by hand. For machines that do 1 1/2 – 2 pound capacity.”
    2 1/2 teaspoons active dry yeast
    3 cups all-purpose flour
    1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
    1 teaspoon salt
    1/4 cup white sugar
    2 tablespoons margarine, softened
    1 cup water
    1 cup margarine
    1 cup packed brown sugar
    1 cup raisins
    1. Remove baking pan from machine. Place yeast, flour, ground cinnamon,
    salt, white sugar, 2 tablespoons butter and water in the order that is
    recommended for the bread maker. Make sure that no liquid comes in contact
    with the yeast. Select dough cycle and press start.
    2. When dough is complete, place dough on floured surface and knead 10 to
    12 times.
    3. In a medium saucepan on low heat, melt one cup of butter, stir in brown
    sugar and raisins ( 1/4 cup of chopped nuts is good too!). Stir until
    smooth. Remove from heat.
    4. Cut dough in one inch chunks. Drop one chunk at a time into the butter
    sugar mixture. Thoroughly coat dough pieces, then layer them loosely in a
    greased Bundt or tube pan, staggering layers so you’re plopping each dough
    chunk over a space between two below. Let rise in a warm, draft-free spot
    until dough is just over the top of the pan, 15 to 20 minutes.
    5. Bake in a preheated 375 degree F (190 degree C) oven for 20 to 25
    minutes or till golden brown. Remove from oven, place a plate face down in
    top of the pan and, using oven mitts to hold plate on pan, turn over both
    until bread slides out onto plate. Serve warm…and enjoy.
