Monday Morning Monkey Bread

No work today? No problem! A bonus day to spend in the kitchen. I'm not feeling the greatest this weekend. I think this will be all I have the energy for today. That and laundry which never ends. Like I always say... If you are not doing the laundry naked, the laundry is not done!

I used my Basic GF Dough for pizza or sweet rolls recipe (duplicate pasted below). I added a bit more baking mix so I could roll the dough into balls with my hands.

Grease an 8" square cake pan. Preheat oven to 350. This is typically made in a Bundt pan but this is just enough for 2 to enjoy with no left overs!

Combine 1/2 cup sugar and 1 tablespoon cinnamon in a gallon sized ziplock bag.


2-1/4 to 2-3/4 cups GF baking mix
1 teaspoon sugar
1 package active dry yeast
1 cup Very Vanilla Soymilk
2 tablespoons oil

In large bowl combine 1-1/2 cups of baking mix, sugar, salt and yeast.  Heat soy milk in microwave until very hot (120 degrees).  My microwave takes 1 minute and 11 seconds.  You can also do this on the stove top.  Pour oil on top of milk.  Pour soy milk and oil in dry ingredients.  Mix for about 2 minutes  Slowly add in more baking mix a 1/4 cup at a time until it just barely pulls away from side of bowl. Add enough baking mix so you can roll the dough with your hands but also making sure it is still soft.

Roll the dough into balls and drop into the cinnamon sugar.  Shake and toss gently to coat.

Place dough in prepared pan in an even layer. Cover and let rise until double in size (15-20 minutes).

While dough is rising, make the caramel sauce.

Caramel Sauce

1/4 cup margarine
3/4 cup sugar
2 tablespoons maple syrup
1 teaspoon Very Vanilla Soymilk

Combine the above in small saucepan and stir until all melted together and gets to a low boil. Pour boiling liquid over the bread. Tilt pan slightly to get the sauce in all the spaces between bread balls.

I really should call this Tumblr is Making Me Fat Bread. So many photos of doughnuts, cinnamon buns, cakes, cookies, tarts, pies...!

Bake at 350 for 20-25 minutes.  Over turn out onto serving dish and let the caramel sauce drip down the sides of the bread. Mmmmmmmm.
