How to Make Easy Monkey Bread with Pecan and Brown Sugar Glaze


  1. Grease a Bundt pan with Crisco.
  2. To make the glaze add brown sugar, butter and cream to a small saucepan. Stir continuously. As soon as the glaze comes to a boil, pour it into the Bundt pan so it puddles evenly in the bottom.
  3. Add 1/2 of the pecan on top of the glaze.
  4. Cut each loaf in 12 pieces.
  5. Roll each piece in a ball and then in the butter and then in the sugar mixture.
  6. Place in Bundt pan. After 1/2 of the dough is used pour the rest of the pecans over the balls.
  7. Finish filling the pan with the dough. Cover with a light cloth and let it sit for about 30 minutes.
  8. Bake in a preheated 350F oven for about 25-30 minutes until golden brown.
  9. Take a knife and break the rolls away from the pan. Invert the pan on a dish and pour out.
