Me & My Impromptu Monkey Bread.

June 12th, 2008 No comments

Bridgford Ready-Dough — Thawed, set aside to rise, then dipped in melted Butter and rolled in Brown Sugar, Cinnamon, Nutmeg and chopped Pecans.  It’s was baked at 375° for 30 minutes, then turned upside-down onto a plate.

I wish I could say this tasted as good as it looks, but it was a little dry — Next time I may set it aside to rise again and cook it for less time.

FYI:  The Post Title was inspired by a Robbie William’s Song – Me and My Monkey.  I used to have it linked here, but its origin was unfortunately removed.  Robbie Williams is so under-played in the USA.  I love his music.

Amish Friendship Bread. Is it Worth the Process?

When my friend first gave me a Baggie-o-? I thought to myself, I don’t know about this.  I must be honest, the baggie kind of grossed me out, but it was kind of interesting too.  At that time, she also gave me a slice of the Bread she just baked.  It was fantastic. 

Since I look forward to tasting it again, that will be my driving force.  I know that it’s supposed to be good, so I’m continuing the process.  It appears to be sort of a Chain Bread.  I hope mine turns out as tasty as hers. 

She gave me a “Starter” on Day 3 of its creation.  I then had to pick it up from there.  I’ll just need to do a little mashing for a few days, and let air out of the bag, when necessary.
