This, is most definitely, one of the best things I have ever had the pleasure to bake. It's sweet dough, rolled into smalls balls, individually dipped into butter and then rolled in cinamon sugar, baked together to form a sweet, sticky, tear and share bread. Then glazed with extra spiced, sticky glaze. It is so good, I cannot afford to make this too often!
It is similar in flavour to cinamon buns and this recipe has made itself infinitely more appealing to me by including pecans. I love anything with nuts in but pecans are exceptionally good in sweet treats.
Originally from the US, it is usually served for breakfast. I cannot imagine a better start to the day, maybe even better than my favourite Waitrose Pain Au Chocolat. Although it would necessitate a very early start to get it done for breakfast. I think i'll stick to the early afternoon treat variety.
I used the BBC Good Food recipe: - Monkey Bread
