Bucketlists. That’s what we decided to tackle as our first post with the SundaySupper group.
A new year, a new recipe crossed off the list. The List. If Iever thought that starting a food blog would shorten it, of course I was wrongby a gazillion light years. The List is relentless in it’s urgency, each itemmore important than the last one, which seemed so urgent at the time.
So, what’s on your bucket list as you start the year? You might find what you need today here, or you might just add a few dozen new ones. That’s how good the list of recipes is.
The Listhas two types of recipes, the ones I need to tackle because of a certaintechnique I want to master and the ones that just need to be made because I’vebeen wanting to for ever, and that is a long time according to the years I’vebeen cooking, like this monkey bread.
I don’tthink I ever saw a monkey bread pic that I didn’t find amazing. Yet here I ammaking it for the first time.
|Before the last rise|
Littleballs of bread dipped first in butter and then in brown sugar with cinnamon, andbaked until a caramel like situation forms around them. It’s like the bestcombination ever, for breakfast, snack, movie watching, the perfect sugar/starch craving soother. Orjust because you wanted to make something really decadent and fun to eat.
Youprobably have every ingredient in your house. You can use white sugar only,or another spice or citrus zest, or a boozy glaze, which of course I did, thelatter. I added rum instead of milk, because I really can’t help myself. Please, please eat it while it´s warm. And then lick your fingers.
My sugar coated balls of dough look two different colors because they were. I ran out of light brown sugar and had to go with dark brown for the last part.
Mineunmolded pretty nicely, something that is achieved only if done within thefirst minutes after taking it out of the oven, but three pics later it startedto fall apart. Which made it even more impossible not to start eating at once.After all it was falling apart. Interesting how fast one can pop these bitesand not even realize a huge chunk of monkey bread is gone.
One lastthing. About that dipping in melted butter and then in sugar. You have twohands, and it’s a good decision to use one for each chore. So, if you don’tfollow my advice and end up with two hands thickly buttered and sugared, somuch that you have to wash them before you realize you’ve done it again, andagain, and again, don’t come here to complain.
Here is the link to this wonderful monkey bread.
