  • 5 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/4 cup milk, heated to 110 degrees F
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted
  • 2 eggs
  • 3 teaspoons instant yeast
  • 1 teaspoon salt


  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter
  • 1/2 cup smooth peanut butter


For the Dough

  • In the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the dough hook, combine the flour, warm milk, sugar, butter, eggs, yeast and salt. Stir to combine on medium-low speed. You may need to use a spatula to scrape some ingredients off the sides of the bowl to incorporate.
  • Once the ingredients are mixed, turn the mixer to medium-high and mix for two to 3 minutes to knead the dough.
  • Place the dough in a well-greased bowl. Cover with a towel and let rise for about an hour, or until the dough has doubled in size.
  • While the dough rises, preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Spray a tube pan with non-stick spray and set aside.
  • Once the dough has doubled in size, pinch off sections of the dough to roll into 2 to 3 inch balls. Set on parchment until you've created about 45 balls.

For the Dip

  • While the dough is rising, you can make the coatings.
  • Combine the brown sugar and cinnamon in a medium bowl and whisk to combine.
  • In a separate bowl, stir together the butter and peanut butter until smooth.


  • Dip each ball of dough into the peanut butter and butter mixture and then the brown sugar mixture. Fill the tube pan with the dough. You'll have about two layers of the dough.
  • Once you've added all the dough, pour any remaining peanut butter mixture over the top. If you're out of the peanut butter mixture, you can combine another 1/4 cup each of melted butter and peanut butter to make more.
  • Bake the bread for 35 to 40 minutes.
  • Let cool for about 15 minutes in the pan and then invert the monkey bread onto a plate or cake stand to serve.
