What my degree in IPE didn't teach me about baking, DIY, fitness, and life…

Pumpkin Monkey Bread

It’s been quite the last couple of months of pumpkin. Since I made my bucket list, I’ve made a ton of recipes that I really loved. It all started with the pumpkin pancakes (click on photos for posts and recipes):


Then came the cookies…


And the crumb cake…


and the biscuits that went into the pizza casserole…

As the weather got cold, pumpkin mac & cheese was the place to be…


and of course there were pumpkin brownies…

Oh and pumpkin cinnamon streusel muffins…


Well, I have one last pumpkin recipe for you – Pumpkin Monkey Bread. I’ve always wanted to make monkey bread, but somehow it never worked out. I didn’t have the right lead time, or I had to make it in advance (and monkey bread needs to be warm!). Finally the stars aligned and I made this monkey bread for a church dinner we hosted. It was warm, hot, and gooey. I would have liked it if the pumpkin came through a bit more strongly, but I won’t complain too much that the caramel flavour seemed to overpower it. Here’s how it works:

Break it into little pieces, roll them into balls, and cover them with yumminess:


With a little patience and a little glaze, before long you’ll have a gooey yummy plate of goodness:

Wanna try? Check out the recipe on Sugar Crafter. The only change I made was to replace the white sugar with brown sugar.

What foodie bucket list items did you cross off this Autumn?

    Mmm…monkey bread is on my list of things to make too! Yours looks so yummy with all that glaze dripping down!

    This fall, I made my own nut butter (that was on my foodie bucket list) with cashews, so easy!

    Awesome! I love cashews. In fact I just made my December peanut butter batch – peanuts, cashews, and white chocolate. Making that one last the month is going to be a challenge!
