Congratulations to Chef Steve for being an Elaine Foodbod’s Enriched Sourdough Competition Winner with this monkey bread recipe.
For the Monkey Bread Dough, I Used Elaine’s Alternative Slightly Lighter Option:
I let the dough prove on the counter overnight and at the point of the second prove I divided the dough into seventeen rounded balls. Meanwhile, I made the filling and white chocolate crème fraiche topping and proceeded with the recipe.
Prepare filling: In a small saucepan, melt 1/2 cup butter. Cook over moderately low heat until butter turns amber and smells nutty, about 3 minutes. Whisk in 1/4 cup honey and 1/2 teaspoon salt; let cool slightly.
- In a separate bowl stir together brown sugar, granulated sugar, and cinnamon.
- Generously butter a 10-inch cast iron pan. Dust the bottom of the pan with half of the sugar mixture. Add dough balls one at a time to bowl with remaining sugar mixture; turn to coat. Arrange balls in an even layer in a cast iron pan. Pour cooled honey mixture on top and cover loosely with plastic wrap; let stand in a draft-free location until risen to the top of the pan, about 1 to 2 hours.
To make the White Chocolate Crème Fraiche
- Bring cream to a boil & add crème fraiche.
- Lightly heat through & pour white chocolate chips into metal bowl to disperse heat
- Once creams are hot, pour over the white chocolate and whisk until melted then season with salt
- Cool and put into a piping bag.
To finish off the Monkey Bread add 4 tbs. white chocolate crème fraiche & 4 tbs. toasted pecans, chopped. Then drizzle with softened white chocolate crème fraiche and finally top it off with pecans. Enjoy
