I love making this pumpkin monkey bread for a holiday brunch. Leftovers reheat well, and the sauce is good enough to make extra to use as waffle and pancake syrup. —Emily Main, Tonopah, Arizona

Ingredients

  • 1 cup warm 2% milk (70° to 80°)
  • 3/4 cup canned pumpkin
  • 2 tablespoons butter, softened
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 4 to 4-1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons active dry yeast
  • SAUCE:
  • 1 cup butter, cubed
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 cup dried cranberries
  • 1/4 cup canned pumpkin
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves

Directions

  1. In bread machine pan, place the first 11 ingredients in order suggested by manufacturer. Select dough setting. Check dough after 5 minutes of mixing; add 1-2 tablespoons of water or flour if needed.
  2. Meanwhile, in a large saucepan, combine sauce ingredients; cook and stir until blended. Remove from heat.
  3. When dough cycle is completed, turn dough onto a lightly floured surface. Divide into 36 portions; shape into balls.
  4. Arrange half of the balls in a greased 10-in. fluted tube pan; cover with half of the sauce. Repeat, being sure to thoroughly coat the top layer with sauce.
  5. Let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 30 minutes. Preheat oven to 375°. Bake 20-25 minutes or until golden brown. Cover loosely with foil if top browns too quickly.
  6. Cool in pan 10 minutes before inverting onto a serving plate. Serve warm.
