Have you ever tasted heaven? Caramel Monkey Bread (with lots of pecans) is to die for! Little balls of homemade dough, drizzled with butter and rolled in cinnamon sugar, slathered with caramel, and warm from the oven! It doesn't get much better than this!
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.
This is an overnight recipe - you'll need to start this the night before you want to serve.
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.
Layer the bottom of your bundt pan with a cup or two of fresh pecans, top with the cinnamon-sugar covered dough balls, and drizzle with homemade caramel sauce.
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!
