Half cooked "monkey bread" doesn't make Christmas morning festive.

It smells really great ~ all buttery, cinnamon warm deliciousness. Then you bite into it.

And the saddest part is that you are so hungry, you try to pick off all the cooked parts off the dough and eat those, along with a fair amount of uncooked dough.

Next Year: Pre-cooked cinnamon rolls.

Dude, I would eat the dough. Cinnamon, butter, sugar, a little flour and eggs - what's not to like?

I swear, Kyle really does feed me.

What also doesn't taste so good is the potatoes that you tried to bake,then you forgot to turn on the oven and they weren't done in time for dinner and then you forgot they *were* cooking until they'd been in the oven a really long time and then they sucked. Not that that happened to me. Yesterday. Damnit.

I was fortunate this year because J took over the holiday cooking duties, so no such mishaps. But I'm with Julie, I'd probably eat the uncooked dough!

I would very likely have tried to finish cooking it in the microwave and just eaten in anyway. After the many many cooking mishaps in my career, I've learned to improvise, or just tell everyone that's how it's supposed to look/taste ;o)

Been there before. :-) But typically that's when the whole family ends up eating candy for B-fast.

why is it called "monkey" bread??

Jess said...

What IS monkey bread? Sounds unappetizing. And not just because of the whole half-cooked thing.

I decided to make baked brie, and the pastry outside part wasn't cooked on the bottom. We ate it anyway and my stomach hurt for an hour afterward! Serves me right, I suppose.

Well. I don't know WHY it's called monkey bread. It is essentially small round bits of dough that you roll in your child's germ ridden hands, then thrown into cinnamon sugar and then into a Bundt Pan.

I had never had it before another Mommy produced it at a gathering. And it was AWESOME.

It also is "supposed" to be easy to pull off - so the dough balls make like little munchkins and pop off.
That did not happen with mine, as they all stuck together in a gooey, uncooked, glop.

Perhaps it is because a mass of monkey eyeballs rolled in cinnamon sugar would look the same?
