Dutch Oven Monkey Bread

Kevin and I used our 12 inch Dutch Oven to make Monkey Bread. It’s our first attempt at Dutch Oven Cooking.

What I learned:

  • Use more coals -my recipe didn’t use enough
  • Towards the end put the coals in the middle of the dutch oven not just the sides

It turned out to be very delicious Monkey Bread.

Happy Outdoor Cooking!

  1. Looks delicious! Have never tried Monkey Bread in the Dutch Oven but I think it will be our next dish. One hint is that the inserts are not necessary. Flavor comes a bit from the oven itself. And, believe it or not, you actually add iron to your diet from the Dutch Oven. Also, cooking is much more even without the insert. Cleaning a Dutch Oven is super easy! Just take a LITTLE water and slosh it around. Dispose of the dirty water and gently wipe clean with a good paper towel. Add vegetable oil and spread with paper towel again. Each time you clean, you season! And it gets better and better and better! Have lots of fun and let us know what else you try! My husband is so excited about trying Monkey Bread. Great idea!

  2. Oh, that is *so* not on my diet, but we may have to give it a try sometime this fall when we have our next campfire! ๐Ÿ˜€ We also don’t worry about inserts most of the time. We just continue to season the cast iron well after each use, and I also spray it good with non-stick spray before cooking each time. On occasion, I have used special parchment liners, when I was particularly afraid that our dish might stick too much, though, and if we were short on time for clean-up. I found them at Gander Mountain. I’ve also referred to The Dutch Oven Dude online many times for tips and recipes as well. Enjoy!
