Cinnamon Apple Cider Monkey Bread
Total TimePrep: 20 min. Bake: 45 min. + standing
Excellent! Pretty easy to make and so delicious warm or cold! Making it in a bundt pan I just cut pieces like a regular cake (most monkey bread recipes you seem to pull apart). One of our new favorites!
I made this for breakfast today and everyone loved it. It is really sweet and there's a lot of food. I made it in an angel food pan and it came apart when I tipped it over (but I had it on a round pizza pan, so it was fine, and it was easier to "dish" up. If I make it again, I'll buy better cinnamon rolls. The store brand ones I bought fell apart when I opened the can and it made it a pain to cut them in quarters. I was easy, but time consuming. Bland? Not with the cinnamon rolls, the apple cider drink powder and the 2tsp. cinnamon in the butter/icing. I thought they were Very cinnamony! Also very sweet.
So I took to heart the advice of the other comments left, which really helped. So to add flavor I added golden raisins with the pecans with liberal nutmeg and about a teaspoon and a half of cardamom Added to the butter mix. Then I left it inverted for about 40 minutes. Turned out awesome!
I was disappointed with this recipe. I knew it would be too much for my husband and me, so I made when our grandsons were here. They are 10 and 7. None of us liked it. It was way too bland. It was, however, easy to make. We put it out for squirrel food. They gobbled it up.
This is a delicious, sweet treat for brunch or anytime. Heed the advice to let the bread rest for 10 minutes before removing the pan, or the bread will come apart. I found 40 minutes to be plenty of cook time, even then the last layer gets quite brown.
Delicious and tasty, especially when warm! Easy to make also!
Is the cider mix a drink or just spices?
This was quick and easy. All in all it was good but it needed more icing so I advice to you two icing cups instead of just one.
This sounds delicious and I'll look forward to making it when our Thanksgiving company arrives.
