My crew is split - I have my pecan lovers, and those that prefer no nuts - so we compromise. Every other batch is loaded up with pecans (okay, I really load up all batches of this with pecans, and just pick off the pecans (YUM!) for those that don't care for the nuts.
We make this tender dough from scratch - no short-cuts here! Even though the "other" recipe is a lot quicker, once you have tasted the tender, homemade, soft and doughy goodness, you'll taste the incredible difference right away!
The dough only takes about 15 minutes to prepare - you then let it sit overnight. In the morning, roll the dough into bite-sized balls and roll with cinnamon sugar.
Bake until golden brown, wait a few minutes, and you'll be serving up the best Caramel Pecan Monkey Bread you have ever had!
Time to get a cup of fresh coffee and enjoy these babies!
