Butterscotch Pecan Monkey Bread

If you’ve ever wondered what the difference was between butterscotch and caramel, let me enlighten you. It’s pretty simple. Butterscotch is made with brown sugar while caramel is made with white sugar. I’m fond of both flavours and use them quite a bit in my baking. With my latest monkey bread kick, I wanted to incorporate the yummy, rich flavours of butterscotch into a recipe. The result was this sublime Butterscotch Pecan Monkey Bread made with butterscotch chips, brown sugar and pecans. Craving a little decadence? This is your recipe.

I slathered on the butterscotch sauce so this recipe is ultra sweet and rich. One serving idea is to put a piece in a bowl and add a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top. It will melt against the warm butterscotch sauce.

The recipe bakes in about 40 minutes. Make sure you check the middle since that tends to be the last place that bakes. If you notice it’s looking a little raw still, leave it a bit longer. Everyone’s oven will be different.
