Monkey Bread

  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter
  • 2 large eggs
  • 3 3/4 cups bread flour
  • 2 1/2 tsp instant yeast
  • 1/4 cup caster sugar
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 cup salted caramel sauce

Sugar Sprinkle

  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup caster sugar
  • 1 tbsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp ginger
  • 1 tsp nutmeg


Monkey Bread

  • Add the milk and butter to a heatproof jug and microwave for 60 seconds. Add the eggs and whisk until well combined. Set aside.
  • To the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with a dough hook, add the bread flour, instant yeast, caster sugar and salt. Mix to combine. Then add the wet ingredients and mix until a dough forms. Continue mixing the dough on low speed for 3-4 minutes until it’s smooth. Cover the bowl and place in a warm spot to let the dough rise for 1 hour.
  • Take the cover off and punch the dough. Sprinkle your workbench with a little flour and place your dough on dough. Sprinkle with a little more flour and form into a ball. Then using a knife or bench scraper cut the dough in half. Then in half again. Then roll each piece into a log and cut into 8 pieces. Roll each piece into a ball.

Sugar Sprinkle

  • Add the brown sugar, caster sugar, cinnamon, ginger and nutmeg into a small bowl and use a whisk to combine.

Let's Assemble

  • Preheat the oven to 180°C / 350°F.
  • Brush a bundt pan with some melted butter. Add a layer of dough balls and brush with some melted butter. Sprinkle with some of the sugar sprinkle. Then add half of the remaining balls and repeat until all the dough balls are in the bundt pan. Finish with a sprinkle of the sugar mixture.Bake for 35 minutes until well risen and golden.

To Take Out Of The Pan

  • Simply tap the bundt pan on your workbench two times, turn upside down and tap to encourage it to come out. If some of it sticks, it’s ok, this cake looks a little messy anyway. Once cooled slightly, drizzle with some salted caramel sauce. Serve.


This cake is best served the day it’s made.
