For Valentine's day, Peter made dinner for me! He made a beautiful meal! So I got that extra time to come up with a fun treat to make for him... Monkey bread! It was perfect for Valentines because I could make it in a heart-shaped bundt pan, instead of the normal circle bundt pan. Also, it was fun because you can just eat it with your fingers, so we could sit on the couch and watch a movie together while we had fun pulling it apart. AND, any leftovers become a breakfast treat the next morning... what, it's the same as a cinnamon roll for breakfast!
I would love to make this with a homemade dough, but that will have to wait for another post; this night I wasn't really allowed in the kitchen because Peter wanted dinner to be a surprise. Thus, this version will be with a pre-made dough. So this one is quick and easy.
- 2 loaves of Bridgford 'Ready-Dough', defrosted (sold in 3 packs, in the freezer section of the supermarket) ...you can use all 3 loaves of bread if you want more, but be sure to bump up the amount of butter to 1 1/2 sticks if you do so.
- ½ cup butter (1 stick), melted
- Cinnamon sugar mixture (4 tsp cinnamon mixed with 3/4 cup sugar)
