Monkey Bread
Ingredients:


Cooking Directions:
-------- ------------ --------------------------------
2 1/2 teaspoons active dry yeast
3 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup white sugar
2 tablespoons butter or margarine -- softened
1 cup water
1 cup butter or margarine
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup raisins or currants

Place yeast, flour, ground cinnamon, salt, white sugar, 2 tablespoons
butter and water into the bread pan in the order that is recommended for
the bread maker. Make sure that no liquid comes in contact with the
yeast. Select dough cycle and press start.

When dough is complete, place dough on floured surface and knead 10 to 12
times.

In a medium saucepan on low heat, melt one cup of butter, stir in brown
sugar and raisins (1/4 cup of chopped nuts is good too). Stir until
smooth. Remove from heat.

Cut dough into 1-inch chunks. Drop one chunk at a time into the butter
sugar mixture. Thoroughly coat dough pieces, then layer them loosely in a
greased Bundt or tube pan, staggering layers so you're plopping each dough
chunk over a space between two below. Let rise in a warm, draft-free spot
until dough is just over the top of the pan, 15 to 20 minutes.

Bake in a preheated 375 degree oven for 20 to 25 minutes or until golden
brown. Remove from oven, place a plate face down in top of the pan and,
using oven mitts to hold plate on pan, turn over both until bread slides
out onto plate. Serve warm.

This recipe yields 1 loaf.

Comments: Here is a recipe for a bread machine, though it can easily be
done in the conventional, muscle building way. You use the dough only
setting and do the rest by hand. For machines that do 1 1/2 to 2 pound
capacity.
