The dough balls dipped in butter and rolled around in cinnamon sugar creates such a wonderful gooey mess. A gooey mess that is even more wonderful from the sweet strawberries tucked in between each fluffy pillow of dough. This monkey bread is dreamy. Truly dreamy!
When you flip it out onto you serving dish, there is this incredible cinnamon-sugar-strawberry sauce just waiting for you to dive into!

monkey bread notes: I had many ideas for this berry theme! Where to start? A fun quick bread was of course on my mind. Then I was going a breakfast bread route like the blueberry bread I made last year. I then was remembering it’s been a while since I made a monkey bread and they are always very welcomed here. I was thinking about my friend Shelley’s strawberry version she made with #TwelveLoaves last year and thought it would be perfect for our Berry theme this April. I used this dough recipe which is a really reliable dough that I use for some many recipe. I think these would be delightful also with blueberries. Just make them…trust me, make them! You may not even have the patience to flip it out onto a serving plate and may dig right into the bundt pan. Just be sure to not burn your fingers.
1 cup whole milk
1 (1/2 ounce) envelope active dry yeast
1/4 cup warm water (100 to 110 degrees)
3 tablespoons granulated sugar
1/4 cup unsalted butter, melted
4 1/2-5 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
For the dough balls:
1 stick butter, melted
1/2 cup sugar
2-4 teaspoons cinnamon (depending on how much cinnamon flavor you like)
1 cup strawberries, cleaned and sliced
strawberry sauce: (optional)
1 cup strawberries, cleaned and sliced
3/4 cup sugar
Heat the milk in a small saucepan over medium heat until it just begins to boil. Remove from heat and let stand until cooled to room temperature. Meanwhile, sprinkle the yeast over the warm water in a large bowl.
Add 1 T of the sugar and let stand until foamy, about 5 minutes.
Beat in the remaining 2 T sugar, eggs and butter. Beat in cooled milk. Gradually add the flour and salt, scraping down side of bowl, until a soft dough forms.
