  1. Hehe, I just read the pumpkin-cream cheese monkey bread idea to my hubby, and he started waving his hand in the sky like a crazy guy yelling, "Yes, please, yes, please!!" :) I'll let you know when we try it!

  9. If I make all of these at once my husband and I will go into a sugar comma. It would be way easier to make all the dough at once though. Will the starter dough freeze well for later use?

  10. Abby - Ha! Sounds like he might want you to make it. ;)

    Muffin Tin - Thank you! The pull apart is so fun - and delicious!

    Megan - Go for it!

    Katie - Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment! You get the gold star for first to mention the movie reference. :)

    Ande B - Thank you!

    Anon - I hope you get a chance to make one or more of them. Have fun and let me know how it goes!

  11. Eternal Student - Ha! I hear ya! I had to bring the goodies to work, and I froze the pull-apart bread.

    You can definitely freeze the dough. Once it's proofed, divide it how you want and freeze the portions you want to save for later. Put the dough in gallon freezer bags, one per section of dough. When you want to use it, you can pull it out and leave on the counter or you can defrost in the fridge then put it in a bowl to double. This will take around 4 or 5 hours, I'd guess, since the dough is chilled through and needs to warm up.

    The other thing you can do is bake the bread however you want, then freeze it already baked. Just wrap it really tightly in plastic wrap, then foil then put the whole thing in a ziplock. The monkey bread is probably not the best for this method, but the other two should work fine this way.

    Good luck, have fun!

  15. Any chance you had monkey bread left over the next day? We have pumpkin pie day at my office right before the Thanksgiving holiday and I was thinking of making this but since I get into the office at 6am I need something that I can make the night before.

  16. Mommy Tanya - I definitely had leftovers. I made this on a Sunday, forgot to bring to work on Monday, so I brought it in Tuesday. Still tasted fantastic. Got rave reviews.

  17. Lorraine - I'd say a little of both. ;) Have fun making (and eating) these!

  18. I just pulled these out of the oven - I made the monkey bread and the swirl loaf.

    My roommates' eyes lit up when they bit into the monkey bread. They ate a whole 2 loaf pans in under 15 minutes. You've made their year.

    We haven't tried the loaf yet, but it's so soft and smells so good, I think it'll be the perfect breakfast.

  24. Very creative which should be what baking is all about. I did some pumpkin muffins over the weekend and the kitchen smelled better than the local bakery. While I had thought of a pumpkin yeast bread, I've never made one, so these definitely go on the list ;-)

  25. This was a great bread project.......it does take hours start to finish. BUT well worth it. Thank you for sharing. The only thing I did different was use tablespoons of pumpkin pie spice to make super pumpkin flavor and then on the last bread roll......did another cream cheese/powder Sugar/cinnamon/pumpkin spice frosting......olalala. Thanks again.

  26. The instructions for the dough in the first recipe is the dough for the monkey bread too, yes?

    ReplyDelete
  27. Yep! Same dough for each of the variations.

  28. I got the wonderful idea to make a yeasted pumpkin bread this week as the summer weather turned into crisp, cool air. This menagerie of different recipes was the perfect go to! Everything got so yummy, the pull apart was my favorite. The pumpkin flavor was very subtle but worked oh so perfectly with all of the other flavors. Thanks for the great recipe!

  31. In my part of the world canned pumpkin is unheard of. I have to order it from Amazon. Having just read these recipes, looks like I'll be putting an order in soon! The monkey bread looks amazing and I can't wait to bake it!
