Pecan Praline Monkey Bread

Friday was a P.A. day for the kids. Since they got to stay at home we were able to do some fun things together before I had to leave for a weekend work trip to Niagara Falls. A few weeks ago I made a Seafood Stuffed Monkey Bread. Ever since then the kids have asked me to make the traditional sweet kind.

So Friday morning, I got them to help me and we used it as the next Kids in the Kitchen recipe. All three of the kids were involved this time, each helping in different ways. If you are looking for a recipe to make with your kids, this is an excellent option!

If you have never had Monkey Bread before I highly encourage you to give this recipe a try. The caramel mixture that is poured over top coats the pecans and monkey bread. It is so easy to make and is like bite size cinnamon bun and praline goodness! It is great as a breakfast treat or as a dessert as well.

The kids were thrilled to help out and there were tasks that each of them could do!

Roll the pieces of dough in a sugar and cinnamon mixture.

Place in a buttered bundt pan with some pecans sprinkled throughout.

Make the caramel and pour over the pieces of dough.

Bake for 35 minutes. The monkey bread will brown and start to crisp up on top. Let it rest for 10 minutes before removing from the bundt pan.

The caramel works its way all throughout the bundt pan and coats the whole loaf of monkey bread. It is so amazing.

  • Awesome! I love pralines and miss how easy they were to come buy living in Texas. I hardly ever see them in Wisconsin.

  • Monkey bread can be very addictive, especially with pralines! I consider this a dangerous post because with this recipe, it is not only addictive but fairly easy to make. I will need to invite a bunch of people over if I make this to keep me from over indulging!

  • Growing up in Cali, for some reason i never knew what monkey bread was until I moved back east. Not surprisingly I quickly became addicted to it. Great simple recipe.

  • Aw, your kids are so cute! What a great dad you are…mine would never help me bake, but they’d be happy to gobble up this amazing monkey bread~

  • What a great idea to make regular ol’ monkey bread and turn it into PRALINE monkey bread! It’s times like this that being allergic to cinnamon KILLS ME!

  • Never heard of monkey bread before – but it looks nice.
