    Every Christmas I get up before everyone else and make some Monkey Bread.
    For those that don't know what it is, here is the recipe.
    1 or 2 loafs of frozen bread dough thawed
    some sugar and cinnamon mixed together (in our family I now use splenda in place of the sugar because I now have diabetes as does my sister in law)
    1 stick of butter melted
    and some walnuts.
    You cut the bread dough into little pieces and dip them in the butter, then the sugar/cinnamon mix and place in a bundt cake pan.
    Mixing in walnuts as you go.
    When the pan is full you bake it for about 45 minutes or so at 350.

    This is what it looks like before I flipped it onto the plate.



    You just pick a piece off it and enjoy.
    I was going to take a picture of what it looked like 10 minutes later, but the kids had already washed the plate and put it away.... :biggrin:
    (Hard to believe they washed the dish without being yelled at too!)

    Hey Dave,
    I used to make something quite similar. Only I did it the hard way. By hand. Your way sounds much better :>))

    That is delicious. Used to make them ahead of time and freeze. Christmas eve took them out to thaw. Warmed in oven in the morning. with 4 kids at christmas, Made a great breakfast.
    Snatch a peice and run lololol

    This recipe I had was called Hungarian coffee cake....
  3. STOP!

    It's well past midnight here and I am getting hungry :biggrin:

    I can't remember where I found that recipe but it does taste good and doesn't take to long to make either.
    Speaking of Hungarian food.. My wife's step mom was Hungarian and she taught my wife how to make a Hungarian Nut Torte cake, well Marji taught Ali how to make it yesterday.. Man was that good!
    Ali was so excited that everyone loved it when she served it after lunch today.
