Whole Wheat Cinnamon Monkey Bread

Today's monkey bread is a higher fat version. And is cinnamoney. And a big hit with my kids.

See - I didn't manage a picture before they attacked it!

Whole Wheat Cinnamon Monkey Bread 

This recipe has a LOT less sugar than similar recipes I have seen, and my kids did not miss the extra cup of sugar, really!


3 cups whole wheat flour
1 T. baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1/3 cup oil
1 cup milk

Mix together and knead with hands, for a short time.


1/2 c. sugar 
1.5 tsp cinnamon

Mix together in a shallow bowl

Form balls of dough and roll them to coat (lightly in cinnamon sugar mixture.
Layer into a greased baking pan

Use the leftover cinnamon sugar mixture (I had plenty left), add 1/3 - 1/2 c. more sugar. Mix with 1/3 - 1/2 c. oil.

Pour sugar and oil mix over the dough.

Bake 30-45 min at 375 F.

It's our new favorite quick cake! Maybe I'll make it pareve for Shabbat, with coconut milk or something...
