Brie and Marmalade Monkey Bread


  • Add 2 cups of the flour with the yeast and salt in a mixer’s bowl. Beat until combined.
  • Put the water and butter in a bowl. Place in the microwave for 15 seconds set on 800 watts. It should be warm but not hot to the touch (48-54 degrees). The butter will not completely melt.
  • Add the flour to the mixture and then add the egg.
  • Beat for 2 minutes using the hook attachment, on medium speed. Scape down the sides of the bowl with a spatula or a spoon.
  • Add another cup of flour. Beat on high speed, scraping down the sides of the bowl when necessary.
  • Add the remaining flour so that the dough turns into a ball.
  • Knead the ball of dough on a lightly floured working surface so that it becomes elastic. This should take about 6-8 minutes. It should spring back when you push on it lightly with 2 fingers.
  • Transfer the dough to a bowl. Cover with a kitchen towel and let it rest for 10 minutes.

For the filling:

  • Create balls of dough that are 2.5 cm in diameter.
  • You can make larger or smaller balls (40 or so will be made).
  • Flatten out each ball of dough. Place a piece of brie in the center (cut each piece of cheese 2.5 cm in length and 6 mm in height).
  • Spread some marmalade over the cheese and top with 1-2 walnuts.
  • Enclose the filling in the dough and press it toward the opposite end. Press down on it to seal and create small cheese, marmalade and walnut filled balls.
  • Combine the sugar and cinnamon in a small bowl.
  • Dip each ball into the melted butter and then roll in the sugar-cinnamon mixture.
  • Place the balls in a generously oiled round cake pan.
  • Cover with a kitchen towel and allow to rest in a warm place for about 1 hour, until it doubles in size.
  • Preheat oven to 180* C (350* F) Fan.
  • Bake for 25-30 minutes, until the monkey bread turns golden brown.
  • Allow to cool for 5 minutes and transfer to a serving platter.
  • Serve warm.
