Betty Crocker's brunch recipes start with Warm Caramel Monkey Bread, which looks absolutely divine! I have always wanted to try making monkey bread from scratch, but haven't done it yet.
Maybe I should start now; with the help from the easy Bisquick (or any brand) baking mix, this looks to be a simple recipe.
3/4 cup butter (do not use margarine)
1 cup packed brown sugar
2 tablespoons whipping cream
1/2 cup coarsely chopped pecans
3 1/2 cups baking mix
1/2 cup milk
2 tablespoons granulated sugar
3 tablespoons butter, softened (do not use margarine)
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/4 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
Heat oven to 350°F. Spray 12-cup fluted tube cake pan with cooking spray.
In 2-quart saucepan, melt 3/4 cup butter. Add brown sugar and cream; heat to boiling over medium heat, stirring constantly. Boil 2 minutes; remove from heat. Pour into pan; sprinkle with pecans.
In large bowl, stir Bisquick mix, milk, granulated sugar, 3 tablespoons butter, the vanilla and egg until soft dough forms. Shape dough into 1-inch balls.
In small bowl, mix granulated sugar and cinnamon. Roll each ball in sugar mixture; place randomly in pan. Sprinkle with any remaining sugar mixture.
Bake 22 to 28 minutes or until golden brown. Cool in pan 10 minutes. Place heatproof serving plate upside down over pan; turn plate and pan over. Remove pan. Serve warm.
