  • 2
    Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Coat bundt pan with nonstick cooking spray.
  • 3
    Combine dough mix, yeast packet, 1/4 cup melted butter, warm buttermilk or milk and egg in the bowl of a stand mixer (with dough hook attachment.) Mix on low speed until dough comes together. Increase speed slightly and mix until dough forms a ball and is slightly tacky, about two to three minutes. (This may also be done by mixing and kneading by hand in a large bowl and will take about five to seven minutes.)
  • 4
    Place dough in a bowl sprayed with nonstick cooking spray. Cover the dough and allow to rise in a warm area for 30 minutes.
  • 5
    Melt 1/2 cup butter. In a bowl, mix sugar with the cinnamon sugar filling.
  • 6
    Divide the dough into approximately 45 to 50 pieces and form into 1 inch balls.
  • 7
    Place dough balls in the remaining melted butter and coat evenly. Roll buttered dough balls in the cinnamon sugar mix.
  • 8
    Place buttered and coated dough balls into the bundt pan.
  • 9
    Bake for 30 to 35 minutes or until golden brown. Cool in pan five minutes. Invert onto serving plate.
  • 10
    Frost warm monkey bread immediately and cool for 5 to 10 minutes before serving.
