How to Make Butterscotch Pumpkin Monkey Bread from Scratch

Step-by-Step

  1. Prepare this recipe ahead of time.
    Butterscotch Pumpkin Sauce
  2. In a small Pyrex bowl, add boiling water and sugar. Stir until sugar is totally dissolved. Then allow to cool to warm.
  3. Then add yeast, stir until there are no clumps. Let sit for 15 minutes. Set aside.
  4. In a pot, scald milk. Then turn off heat and stir in shortening. Allow to cool to room temperature. Set aside.
  5. In a large mixing bowl, add all dry ingredients, then add wet ingredients, and finally rising agents. Dump out on a floured surface.
  6. Knead dough for about 5 minutes adding as much as a cup or two of flour, until you can pass the thumb test. (Dough bounces back after you press with thumb.)
  7. On a greased cookie sheet, make dough into balls. Place on cookie sheet and allow to rest for 30 minutes to 1 hour.
  8. Then in a greased Bundt pan or deep Pyrex dish, optionally sprinkle chopped pecans. Then put down one layer of dough balls. Scoop one ladle of Butterscotch Pumpkin Sauce and spread around. Then continue to layer dough to sauce.
  9. Cover with either plastic wrap or a Pyrex lid. Place in refrigerator for 2-6 hours.
  10. Bake at 350F for 30-35 minutes. Allow to cool for 5-10 minutes before turning over onto a plate.
