  • 1
    Heat oven to 350°F. Spray 12-cup fluted tube cake pan with cooking spray.
  • 2
    In large bowl, mix Bisquick™ mix, pumpkin, 1/4 cup of the granulated sugar, 3 tablespoons melted butter, egg and vanilla to form soft dough.
  • 3
    In wide shallow bowl, use whisk to mix remaining 1/4 cup granulated sugar and the cinnamon.
  • 4
    Scoop dough into balls, about 2 tablespoons each, and roll into cinnamon-sugar.
  • 5
    Meanwhile, in 2-quart saucepan, heat 3/4 cup butter, the brown sugar, whipping cream, vanilla and salt to boiling, stirring to dissolve sugar; boil 1 minute. Remove from heat; pour into pan. Carefully place coated dough balls in pan, taking care not to burn hands on hot butter and sugar mixture.
  • 6
    Bake about 30 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center of bread comes out clean. Cool on cooling rack 10 minutes before carefully turning out onto plate.
  • 7
    Meanwhile, make chai glaze. In microwavable glass, microwave milk about 30 seconds or until just hot to the touch. Add chai tea bags; steep 15 minutes. Squeeze bags to release any liquid they’ve absorbed.
  • 8
    Place powdered sugar in small bowl. Using whisk, beat chai mixture a few tablespoons at a time into powdered sugar to desired consistency. You may have more chai mixture than you need. Drizzle over monkey bread that has been turned out onto plate.

Expert Tips

  • Be sure to use 100% canned pumpkin puree, not pumpkin pie mix or filling (which has spices and sugar added), for this recipe.
  • Chai tea is often sold as a liquid concentrate, but you can find both bagged and loose-leaf chai tea in the grocery store where all of the other teas are sold.
