Sweeten up springtime with this strawberry monkey bread coated with a cream cheese glaze.
Strawberries and cream cheese is one of my absolute favorite flavor combinations. So when the opportunity presents itself to bake up a sweet treat like monkey bread, this easy-to-bake version made with strawberries, cream cheese and Bisquick almost always makes it to the top of the list.
I love baking monkey breads for brunches or parties, including wedding and baby showers. Guests can pull off bites as they please, making it a great treat for a crowd. And with springtime in full swing, this is a fantastic way to showcase the season’s flavors!
First, gather your ingredients for making the dough. It’s a lot easier and quicker to make this recipe when you’ve made sure you have everything you need measured ahead of time.
Combine the dough ingredients in a large bowl until well combined. Place the dough on a lightly floured surface and divide into 24 equal-sized balls.
Coat each piece of dough with melted butter and a brown sugar-cinnamon mixture. This is my favorite step because I get excited knowing how delicious the end result will taste!
Alternate layers of dough and strawberries in the bottom of a greased bundt pan. It’s OK if the layers are a little uneven; the dough will even out and fill the holes as it bakes. Bake the bread until the top is golden brown and the dough is baked through, about a half-hour.
Meanwhile, make the cream cheese glaze. This is all about feel; just add more milk or powdered sugar until you’ve got a smooth but thick glaze. The glaze will thin out and melt a bit once you pour it over the bread.
Remove the bread from the oven and let it cool 5 minutes before inverting it onto a serving plate.
Top with the glaze and serve warm. Super easy and super tasty!
