Monkey Bread

Cream Cheese Monkey Bread

I saw a recipe on Pintrest that looked amazing so I decided to give it a try.  My comments and review are at the end.

Here’s the original from Pip & Ebby, I’ve modified a bit Cream Cheese Monkey Bread.

Dinner Rolls
Cream Cheese
Brown Sugar

Quick Steps

1. Put the rolls into a pan.  I used a round pan because it would be easier to clean than a bunt pan as used in the original.

2. Use your finger to make a divot in the rolls then add some cream cheese.

3. Melt enough butter to cover.

4. Sprinkle a good amount of cinnamon, sugar, and brown sugar over the top.

 5. Bake until complete.  I know it’s done because the smell begins to fill my house.

Review and Comments

The picture in the original recipe looked so much better than mine!  Overall, I think I should have added MORE SUGAR!!!

1. I don’t think I used enough sugar.  More sugars would have made it have more of a consistent taste.

2. There is too much bread!  When I’m eating something sweet, I don’t like much of the original dough to be un-coated. Because the dinner rolls are thick, much of the inside of the bread tasted just like a typical dinner roll.

3. The cream cheese threw off the flavor a bit.  I’m a big fan of cream cheese but I think because the cream cheese was just inside a large piece of dough, it was a bit boring and bland.  A suggestion to remedy this and add flavor is to use a flavored cream cheese, Brown sugar and Maple would have been a great choice.
