Monkey bread is a nice bread to make for a party—it's made up of lots of bite-sized pieces. You can read more about it in this blog post, but here's the recipe.
This is very time consuming to make, mainly due to multiple long waits for the dough to rise.
|Ingredient||Volume||Weight||All-purpose Flour||4 cups||500 grams|
|Sugar||¼ cup||47 grams|
|Active Dry Yeast||1 packet||--|
|Salt||1 teaspoon||6.1 grams|
|Milk (2%)||1¼ cups||305 grams|
|Butter||¾ cup||170.3 grams|
Preheat oven to 225F (107C).
Mix all the ingredients together and chill. Roll into 10 to 15 gram weight balls. Place on an unlined light-colored baking sheet; dough can be spaced closely, as these cookies don't expand when baked. Cook for about 45 minutes. It can be tough to tell when they're done, as they don't brown. Place on cooling racks to cool.
When cooled, roll cookies in powdered sugar. When serving, cookies can be rolled in additional powdered sugar.
