Small Batch Mini Sticky Bun Cinnamon Roll Monkey Bread

Are you craving a delicious treat that combines the gooey goodness of sticky buns, the irresistible flavors of cinnamon rolls, and the fun of monkey bread? Look no further! In this blog post, we will guide you through the process of making a small batch of mini sticky bun cinnamon roll monkey bread.

What is Monkey Bread?

Monkey bread is a sweet, pull-apart bread that is typically made with balls of dough rolled in sugar and cinnamon, then baked together in a bundt pan. It gets its name from the way you eat it, by pulling apart the individual pieces with your hands, just like a monkey!

Why Make a Small Batch?

Making a small batch of monkey bread is perfect for those times when you want a sweet treat, but don’t want to make a whole pan. It’s also great for smaller households or for those who want to indulge without going overboard. Plus, it’s a fun and easy recipe to make with kids!

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, cold and cut into small pieces
  • 3/4 cup buttermilk
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans (optional)

Instructions:

  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C) and grease a 9-inch round cake pan.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, granulated sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
  3. Add the cold butter pieces to the flour mixture and use a pastry cutter or your fingers to cut the butter into the dry ingredients until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
  4. Pour in the buttermilk and stir until just combined. The dough will be sticky.
  5. In a separate small bowl, mix together the brown sugar, melted butter, cinnamon, and chopped pecans (if using).
  6. Take small spoonfuls of the dough and roll them into balls. Dip each ball into the brown sugar mixture, making sure to coat it well.
  7. Place the coated dough balls into the greased cake pan, arranging them in a single layer.
  8. Bake for 25-30 minutes, or until the bread is golden brown and cooked through.
  9. Allow the monkey bread to cool in the pan for a few minutes, then invert it onto a serving plate.
  10. Serve warm and enjoy!

Variations:

Feel free to get creative with your mini sticky bun cinnamon roll monkey bread! Here are a few variations you can try:

  • Add a cream cheese glaze on top by mixing together softened cream cheese, powdered sugar, and a splash of milk.
  • Swap out the pecans for walnuts or almonds, or leave them out entirely if you have nut allergies.
  • Sprinkle some raisins or dried cranberries into the brown sugar mixture for added sweetness and texture.

Whether you’re making this small batch mini sticky bun cinnamon roll monkey bread for a special occasion or just because you’re craving something sweet, it’s sure to be a hit. So gather your ingredients, roll up your sleeves, and get ready to enjoy a warm and gooey treat!
