Monkey Bread


This has been a LONG time coming!  Gluten free, egg free, nut free Monkey Bread, dripping with warm, gooey caramel and I'm not monkeying around.  I've been wanting to tackle this for a couple of years, and now it's here.  Finally, I can sign up to bring Monkey Bread for brunches with friends.  That is if my kids let me out the door with these!  I may need to make a separate batch just for them.



Who will you share these with?  Invite over your neighbor you've been meaning to spend time with, invite your family over, or invite that friend you need to catch up with.




Monkey Bread

~ Gluten Free, Egg Free & Nut Free

2 c Paula's Gluten Free Flour Mix   (recipe at bottom of bread post, I make a big batch and store in my cupboard for easy and quick baking because I use this in so many recipes)
1 t xanthan gum
1 1/2 T sugar
2 t baking powder
1/4 t salt
1/2 t ground cinnamon
4 T butter, chilled and cut into small chunks
3/4 c buttermilk
* extra GF flour for dusting work surface

1/2 c white sugar
1/2 t cinnamon

1/2 c brown sugar, packed
6 T butter

* Can be made in a loaf pan or in a 8" square pan (if doubling the recipe, use a bundt pan).


1.  Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Butter loaf pan well (or spray with cooking spray).  To prepare work surface, wash counter top, place about 18" saran wrap on slightly wet counter top, sprinkle GF flour on top of saran wrap. 
2.  In a large bowl, combine flour, xanthan gum, sugar, baking powder, salt and cinnamon.  Whisk together well.  Cut chilled butter into flour mixture and mix with a pastry blender until it resembles a coarse meal, with pea size pieces.  Add buttermilk and stir gently just until entirely moistened.
3.  Place dough on prepared work surface, gently knead a couple of times.  Roll out to about 1/2"-3/4" thick.  Cut dough into roughly 1 inch square pieces.
4.  In a small bowl, combine white sugar and cinnamon and stir together well.  Gently toss dough pieces in cinnamon sugar mixture to coat each piece, then place pieces of dough into prepared pan.
5.  In a small saucepan, combine brown sugar, and butter.  Melt over medium heat, do not boil.  Pour over dough.
6.  Bake for 30 minutes at 350 degrees.  Let rest for 5 minutes then invert pan onto serving tray.  Use a spatula to get all the extra caramel out, you won't want to waste one single drop.

Serve warm.  Makes about 6 servings.

    1. I feel your pain Becca. Looking at recipes at night can be dangerous. It reminds me of what my Mom always said, "Don't go to the grocery store hungry." I probably shouldn't look at recipes hungry either. ;)

  12. Michael Kors Outlet Online was a huge success there and became very well known. The designer Kors then branched out into accessories including Michael Kors Handbags Clearance. He never lost focus on his American chic styling. Some of his most notable collections include the Michael Kors Totes, Michael Kors satchel and the Designer MK Outlet and Michael Kors Outlet Online Store.

    No one has to know that they are cheap Ray Ban Sale UK and no one will know unless you tell them. Each of the cheap designer Ray Ban Sunglasses Sale UK carries the signature brand on the lens to let you know that you do have authentic designer Cheap Ray Ban Sunglasses UK.

  13. Ce sac cartable Michael Kors est si universel qu'il pourrait plaire à tout le monde. Dans cet article, je vais essayer de passer en revue les caractéristiques principales et les éléments qui distinguent ce sac à main des autres.

    L’extérieur de ce fourre-tout Michael Kors est un cuir métallisé de laiton froncé et froncé. Si vous connaissez les sacs à main Michael Kors, vous savez que ce cuir sera doux et souple. Les deux grandes poignées supérieures sont attachées au sac avec quelques centimètres de chaînes dorées, puis les moitiés supérieures des bretelles présentent le même cuir couleur laiton.

    La diversité des couleurs et la taille utilisable de ce sac le rendent parfait pour un usage quotidien. Les poches intérieures ne manquent pas pour aider à garder les choses en ordre. Il y a des endroits parfaits pour votre téléphone ou votre Blackberry. Le zip top empêche les malfaiteurs de saisir votre sac dans un bar et aide également à contenir tout ce qui se trouve à l'intérieur lorsque vous courez pour créer ce train.
