I have Bundt Fever! Is there anyone out there following The Food Librarian's I Like Big Bundts: 30 Days of Bundts who hasn't been affected? Not possible.
After 12 days of a-bundt-ant circular loveliness I had to get up off this chair and bake a bundt.
My humble contribution is a reprise of Food Librarian's day 7 Monkey Bread.
Like my bundt mentor, I followed Martha Stewart's recipe. My only change to the batter was the addition of a teaspoon of cinnamon. I like the golden colour it gives the finished cake. Also, when I was constructing the last layer, I switched out the chopped walnuts for chocolate chips. I like a little chocolate in, well, everything.
This was my first monkey bread and it won't be my last. Imagine taking a plate of cinnamon rolls, separating them into bite sized pieces and dipping each individual bite into a buttery cinnamon, brown sugar, nut mixture. Salivating? Me too.
Before I head back to the kitchen for another slice, let me encourage you again to visit The Food Librarian's blog where she is industriously baking a bundt a day, leading up to November 15's National Bundt Day. Please cheer her on.
