Upside-Down Banana Monkey Bread
Total TimePrep: 45 min. + rising Bake: 25 min.
delicious but very rich
Wonderful recipe. It does take a while to make, but what I did was follow the recipe through the making the dough into balls, rolling in cinnamon/sugar and placing them over the caramel sauce in the pan. I then covered it tightly with plastic wrap and aluminum foil and I froze it. Then, the night before I wanted to serve it, I boiled a cup of water in my microwave, and while that was boiling I removed the covering from the dish and recovered it with a clean kitchen towel. I then removed the cup of boiling water from the microwave and placed the towel-covered dish in the warm/moist microwave to raise overnight. By morning, it was perfectly raised and I bake it according to recipe instructions. I did put all the caramel sauce in the bottom the dish when I made it, rather than reserving some as the recipe said since I knew I was going to be freezing it. When I turned the baked dish out onto the serving platter, there was plenty of sauce and I just thinly sliced a whole banana over the top. My breakfast guests loved it and I will definitely be making this again!
Thus was absolutely delicious! It was quite a bit of work but worth it.
This was great! Loved the glaze and the banana isn't too heavy of a taste. Nice and cinnamony! My family really enjoyed it!
