    Do you think this would work in another kind of baking pan or casserole dish?

      Hi, Claire! Managing editor of Simply Recipes, here! I think this would be fine baked in a bread loaf pan or a cake pan. I think a more shallow casserole dish would work, but the monkey bread might not hold together as well when you turn it out. Baking times might also be a little different, so I’d start checking after 20 minutes. Let us know how it turns out!

        Thank you! I made it for Christmas breakfast in an 8×8 glass baking dish. Worked great! 25 minutes did the trick.

    I’m not sure what “shaggy dough” looks like for someone that never makes bread. Also, is the medium high speed a kneeding speed. You keep it on med/high for 10 minutes?
    “Mix on medium speed until a shaggy dough forms, then turn the mixer up to medium-high and knead for 10 minutes (set a timer!).”

      Hi (again!) — I kept thinking about your question about the kneading speed and talked it over with Cindy, the recipe’s author. After discussing, we think that “medium-low” is probably a better kneading speed for most mixers. You can be a bit more aggressive with this dough, but the idea is really just to keep it moving and kneading at a good clip. I’ve updated the recipe. Thank you!

      Also, if you do a Google image search for “shaggy dough” you’ll get some pretty good images that will show you what to expect!

      Hi, Bridget! “Shaggy dough” is when there’s no more loose flour at the bottom of the bowl and it’s mostly been mixed into the rest of the ingredients, but the dough still looks clumpy, floury, and “shaggy.” It looks kind of like the fur on a big shaggy dog! And yes, med/high speed when kneading with a stand mixer. If you’re kneading by hand, it might take you a little longer. Hope you like the recipe!

    Does the recipe call for Apple Cider Vinegar?

    • Emma Christensen

      Hi, Dana! No, you just need apple cider (unfiltered apple juice) for this recipe. Enjoy!

    I like the over night Idea, maybe I just leave it in the oven with the light on and use my sour dough starter.

    • Emma Christensen

      Chad, I love the idea of making this with sourdough starter! Let us know how it works out!
