Apple-Pecan Monkey Bread
Makes 8 to 10 servings
  • 1⅔ cups sugar
  • 5 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • ¾ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1¼ cups chopped peeled Braeburn apple
  • 1 cup chopped pecans

  • 11 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
  1. Spray a 10-cup Bundt pan with cooking spray.
  2. In a small bowl, whisk together sugar, cinnamon, salt, and nutmeg. In another small bowl, stir together apple and pecans.
  3. Roll each piece of dough in melted butter, then in sugar mixture. Place half of dough pieces in prepared pan. Sprinkle apple mixture on top of dough pieces. Top with remaining dough pieces. Cover and let rise in a warm, draft-free place (85°) until doubled in size, about 2 hours.
