Pumpkin Monkey Bread

It’s What’s for ____ Wednesday?!  So, what’s for brunch? Pumpkin Monkey Bread!  I actually used this recipe as a dessert, but traditionally, Monkey Bread is served as a brunch dish.

What the heck is Monkey Bread?  A delicious, sticky, gooey pastry.  From Wikipedia – “The bread is made with pieces of sweet yeast dough (often frozen) which are baked in a cake pan at high heat after first being individually covered in melted butter, cinnamon, sugar and chopped pecans.[3] It is traditionally served hot so that the baked segments can be easily torn away with the fingers and eaten by hand.”

This recipe is nut free and is made with pumpkin…yum!  Now, I must warn you.  If you are looking for a pumpkin fix, this is not the recipe for you.  Don’t get me wrong, this Monkey Bread was scrumptious, but the pumpkin flavor was definitely overpowered by the spices.

I followed SugarCrafter’s recipe to a tee and then took an awful photo with my iPhone because I forgot to bring my camera to my monthly girls’ dinner!
