Whole Wheat Monkey Bread

Here is a recipe we enjoy eating on the weekends. I took a picture of it this morning to add to the blog and it looks like a pile of monkey doo-doo, not a yummy breakfast. Obviously a career as a photo food stylist is not in my future.

Monkey Bread
1 loaf frozen whole wheat bread dough.
1 stick butter
3/4 cup brown sugar
1 tsp cinnamon
Pecans

Thaw out frozen dough according to package directions. In the morning, melt butter, sugar and cinnamon in a sauce pan. Cook until the brown sugar is dissolved.
Butter a loaf sized pan. Break off pieces (bite sized) of the bread dough and place it in the loaf pan. When you have used half of the dough, pour on half of the caramel sauce and nuts. Add another layer of the remaining dough and sauce. Bake at 350 for 35 minutes.

I'm definately trying this. I've been trying to avoid white bread, only because a website told me to.

By the way, welcome to the blogging block!

We use the frozen wheat bread dough for a lot of things - pizza crust, calzones, breadsticks. Granted this stuff is still not "healthy" but it has to be better than using white bread.
