Apple Cinnamon Raisin Nut filled Monkey bread

Nor M.


I like my Monkey bread made with home made dough.I prefer it to the the canned dough people use to make Monkey bread. Honestly canned dough does not compare to homemade dough.I wanted to put a twist on the traditional monkey bread.This is more like a coffee cake. You can pull it apart like monkey bread too.I Came up with this,and it was a huge hit with my family.I love using the apples I pick from the local orchards in my area.I used Jona Gold apples in this recipe. Hope you all love it. :)

How to Make Apple Cinnamon Raisin Nut filled Monkey bread


  • 1Fill a large bowl with warmed milk,and stir in yeast. Let sit 5 minutes. Add eggs,salt,and sugar.Mix well. Add melted butter and 1/2 of the flour .mix together, and add the remaining flour Stir until combined
  • 2Put dough in to greased bowl cover with towel. Set aside and let it rise until doubled in size.
    1 -2 hours
    Note: You can speed up the rising process by heating your oven to 100 degree's. Shut it off and put dough in bowl in oven. watch it rise!!
  • 3Spring form pan with parchment paper, if you have it. If not grease it real well. I use a spring form pan for the depth.
    Start getting your other ingredients together for filling. don't forget to pre heat oven to 350 degree's
  • 4melt the butter put aside.In another bowl Mix sugars and cinnamon together.
  • 5Get your dough that has risen. Pinch off some dough and start making balls about the size of a doughnut hole.keep making dough balls until dough is gone.
  • 6Now dip your dough balls in the melted butter and put in the sugar cinnamon mixture and coat well.
  • 7Start placing your dough balls around the inside of the pan until half of dough balls are used.
  • 8Make your filling. Take your apples,raisins,and nuts mix together with sugar and cinnamon. Sprinkle it on top of dough ball in pan all the way around.
  • 9Top with remaining sugar coated dough balls.Sprinkle with remaining filling and slightly press in to dough. Dough will raise again with in 15 minutes after handling. Put in oven and bake at 350 degree's 35 -40 minutes,or until not doughy any longer.
  • 10make the streusel topping. Mix all ingredients
    together until crumbly. You can also put it in a food processor to quicken this. I use my Ninja.
  • 11Top dough with streusel and bake at 350 degree's for 50-60 minutes or until golden brown.
  • 12take out of oven cool for a bit,and turn upside down on to plate. At this time. You can make a simple icing with a box of confection sugar,and a few tablespoons of milk. and drizzle over top or eat as. is.
