You need three separate bowls. Dissolve yeast in a small amount of lukewarm water. In another bowl, mix eggs, sugar, salt, and 1 cup water. In third bowl, pour boiling water over shortening. Combine all ingredients and add 6 cups flour.

pull apart: monkey bread.

3/4 cup granulated sugar

1/2 cup chopped pecans

2 teaspoons orange zest

2 (12-ounce) can refrigerated buttermilk biscuits (10 count)

1 (8-ounce) package cream cheese

1/2 cup (1 stick) melted butter

1 cup sifted confectioners' sugar

2 tablespoons fresh orange juice

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. In a small bowl, combine the granulated sugar, pecans, and zest; set aside. Separate the biscuits. Place about 3/4 teaspoon cream cheese in the center of each biscuit. Fold each biscuit in half over the cheese, pressing the edges to seal.

Dip the biscuits in melted butter, then dredge in the granulated sugar mixture. Place the biscuits, curved-side down, in a single layer in the hollows of a lightly greased 12-cup bundt pan, spacing them evenly (do not stack). Place any remaining biscuits around the tube, filling any gaps. Drizzle any remaining butter over the biscuits, and sprinkle with

any remaining sugar mixture. Bake for 35 to 40 minutes, until golden brown. Immediately invert the cake onto a serving platter. Combine the confectioners' sugar and orange juice, stirring well; drizzle the glaze over the warm cake. Serve warm. Good luck.

I'm finding that often times my caramel sauce (from brown sugar and butter) in my monkey bread ends up granulated. The last time it was granulated and hard. I don't know how to fix that. I believe I'm cooking it as directed.

What cooking principles apply here?

You can also use those biscuits that come in a tube. All you have to do is cut them in half. It may be easier than using frozen bread if you are in a hurry. (11/30/2004)

Thanks for sharing your wonderful recipes. I always use frozen bread dough for any recipe that calls for bread dough or biscuits. It saves on time and the taste is unbelieveably close to homemade. Rhodes frozen dough is my favorite, you can buy the loaves or rolls. They also make yummy cinnamon rolls. Thanks again! (12/12/2007)
