Sticky Cinnamon Pull-apart Monkey Bread

I made this out in Tofino over spring break. I meant to tell you immediately, but then didn’t… and even though it’s far from the weekend now, I’m thinking about it and don’t want to forget again. This is like cinnamon buns for those intimidated by the thought of making cinnamon buns… you start with balls of dough, dip them in melted butter and cinnamon sugar, then pile them in a Bundt pan to bake, then pull apart and eat by the bite. It’s like a pile of Timbits, amalgamated with butter and sugar.

You upend it onto a plate, letting any excess stickiness contribute to its gilded sides, then splatter it with a quick icing sugar drizzle and a fork. If you’re not so much into making dough, you could start with the kind of frozen dough they sell at the grocery store to bake your own loaves and buns, but it’s worth giving this smooth, sweet dough a go.

    Although I hate to admit it I have made this recipe with Pilsbury Biscuits. There’s so much sugar and butter you can’t really tell it’s from a can. I’m sure Julie’s are divine but these are quick and were devoured!

    I’ve made something similar with regular bread dough, melted butter, then rolled in gomashio (ground up sesame seeds and salt) – it was really good!
