Cook's Notes

Icing Tip: Turn the plate as you drizzle the icing so you won't have to reach as far. Let the icing drip down the center hole and the outside.

    this is a really great baking activity for small children. the monkey bread is tasty and best served warm. i don't like the recommended icing. also, i think this recipe would turn out better with more than 2 tbsp of the nut mixture in the bundt pan, and more melted butter.

    I think it's important to note, if you haven't baked with yeast before, is that temperature is super important. When diluting the yeast, make sure the water is actually quite warm - about 70C. Also, make sure that the other ingredients are either at room temperature or warm. When letting the dough stand, make sure it is covered and in a warm place away from any drafts. I also added 1/2 a cup more brown sugar and ground hazelnuts as well as cinnamon in the icing.
