Vegan Monkey-Bread

Scout had a sleepover so I made Monkey Bread for breakfast...

Mom used to make Monkey Bread for family get together mornings - but I don't have her recipe - I just used a basic bread dough from my no-knead-bread post:

2 cups of bread flour
2 T sugar
1 T powdered soy milk
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp yeast
1 cup warm water
1 T canola oil

Mix and let rest 20 - 30 minutes.
...then I mixed about 1/2 cup of turbinado sugar with about 1 teaspoon of cinnamon and melted some Earth Balance - then I scooped off a spoonful of dough and dredged it first in the Earth Balance and then in the Sugar/Cinnamon and laid it in the beautiful Pound Cake Pan that Karen gave me (I greased it with some Earth Balance first) - Let rise about 20 - 30 minutes and bake in a 350 degree oven for 30 - 40 minutes.
This is what it looked like before it went into the oven...
...and after it came out all gorgeous and bubbly...
...Just invert the hot pan onto a plate... reveal the gooey yumminess...
...and be very careful that your 'monkeys' don't burn their fingers trying to pull the bread apart...


  1. Mmmmm, monkey bread! I haven't had that since high school, it was one of the things we learned to make in our home ec class, except me used a box mix. I'm totally going to try your recipe, thanks for posting :)

  2. yuummmm - definitely not ETL!!! i think the vegan crescent rolls would work if you wanted to skip the dough-making...

    love, k

  3. Oh yes, that looks really good. I am going to make that for sure!

  4. Very good substitute for my recipe. We use canned biscuits cut in fourths. Rest is about the same. MOM

  7. ooh! Sweet monkey bread! My mom always makes monkey bread for Thanksgiving, but it's like dinner roll monkey bread and not sweet! I'll have to try this "new" version. :)

  8. This looks yummy! Where did you find powdered soy milk? How long did you bake and at what temp.
