Apple Fritter Monkey Bread Recipe! #tipit

posted in Food & Drink > Recipes
  • For the Dough (you can also use 4 cans of refrigerated biscuit dough instead of making the dough from scratch)


    2 1/4 teaspoons active dry yeast (or 1 package)
    1/4 cup warm water
    1 1/4 cups warm 2% milk
    1/3 cup unsalted butter, melted
    2 large eggs
    1/4 cup white sugar
    1 teaspoon salt
    5 cups all purpose flour

  • Directions

    To make the dough, dissolve the yeast in warm water in a large bowl. Wait a minute or so to make sure the yeast gets frothy. Add the warm milk, butter, and eggs. Mix to combine. Add the sugar and salt and mix to combine. Add flour a cup at a time and mix until incorporated. Knead for five-minutes, until dough is elastic (it will still be a bit sticky).

    Grease a bowl and put dough in it. Cover bowl and put somewhere warm to rise for two hours, or until double in size (you can also make the dough the night before and let it rise in the fridge).

  • For the Apple Filling


    2 apples, peeled and diced in small chunks
    3 tablespoons white sugar
    1 teaspoon cinnamon


    While you wait for the dough to rise, prepare the apple filling. Put diced apples in a bowl and mix with sugar. Set aside and let juices collect at the bottom (this will make sure that the filling isn't watery).

  • For the Coating


    1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted
    3/4 cup white sugar
    1 tablespoon ground cinnamon


    Prepare the coating ingredients. Melt butter in a small bowl. In another small bowl, mix sugar and cinnamon together to form cinnamon sugar.

  • For the Caramel Sauce


    1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted
    1/2 cup white sugar
    2/3 cup light brown sugar
    1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract


    Prepare the caramel sauce (which you will pour over the assembled monkey bread before baking) by mixing all the ingredients together in another bowl.

  • For the Glaze


    1 cup powdered sugar
    2 tablespoons milk
    1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract


    Mix all ingredients together in a small bowl.

  • To Assemble Monkey Bread

    Preheat oven to 350 degrees. After the dough has risen, punch it down and pull of 2-inch chunks. Flatten into a disc and fill with 1-2 teaspoons apple filling. Pull the dough around the filling and form into a ball. Roll each fritter in the melted butter and the cinnamon sugar coating.

    Place fritters in a bundt pan and sprinkle a few diced apples between layers. Once you fill the bundt pan about 3/4 way, pour the caramel sauce over the fritters. Bake for 35-40 minutes. Cover the bundt pan with foil if it is browning too quickly.

  • When the monkey bread is done baking, cool in the bundt pan for 5-10 minutes. Then turn the whole pan out onto a large plate. Drizzle with glaze and serve.
