Bubble Bread

If you want to impress friends and family, making a Bubble Bread is the way to do it. This fun-to-make bread consists of a yeasted sweet dough that is rolled into golf ball-sized chunks, then rolled in butter and cinnamon-sugar and arranged in a Bundt pan. After it had risen, you bake it and devour the sweet cinnamony morsels that have been drizzled (or not) in a sugar glaze.

When making this bread, give yourself enough time to make the dough and let it rise. I think it took me about 2 hours from start to finish with no dilly-dallying. The final result looks really neat - sort a cross between cinnamon buns and a Bundt cake. It is also fun to eat and the portions are smaller so, in theory, the guilt factor is as well. It's like eating a Timbit instead of a whole doughnut, you know? I've included some modifications to the recipe in the recipe link below just for reference. I know some of you may be weary of working with yeast and I totally understand where you're coming from. But, if you're looking to challenge yourself this is a yummy way to get started.

That looks really good! I've never made it quite like this. When I make this bubble/monkey bread, I usually make the balls smaller so that there's more cinnamon sugar and butter per bread. But I'll definitely give this a try.

Jerry - I can't disagree with you!

Hayley - Thank you!

HungryKat - Smaller balls...sounds like something to try out next time I make it. My little guy rolled the balls for this bread. :)

Patricia - Thanks! Check your mail, hint hint. :)

Veron - Yes, I believe bubble and monkey are the same bread. :)
