Monkey Bread and a Clean Oven

Ooey Gooey Monkey Bread Recipes | www.somethingswanky.com

Monkey Bread is probably my favorite recipe to develop. I’m in love with it, because you can take it in so many different directions… different flavored breads, different toppings, different fillings, etc. I love a recipe that has endless possibilities, and Monkey Bread definitely fits the bill. Plus, it’s like the ultimate comfort food, right? It is literally a pile of ooey, gooey, aromatic, freshly baked and warm carbohydrates that you pull apart with your fingers, which makes licking your fingers an absolute requirement. Does life get any better than that??

Why, yes. YES IT DOES! Because, okay, let’s face it. The ooey-est, gooey-est desserts are always the messiest, right? Always! No matter how careful I am, I always manage to make a gigantic sticky mess in my oven.

Usually, it’s because I think I can double the recipe when I can’t. Anyone else have this problem? I’ll fill my bundt pan with the dough and filling, and then I think “why, that’s only halfway full. I bet I could double this and it would be just fine…” Invariably… it turns out that I can’t double the recipe after all. And, instead, there’s an overflow of sticky sweet goodness in the oven (which does not smell good at all!). Oh, and now I have an oven to clean. Lovely. Who has time to clean an oven when there’s Monkey Bread to be eaten??

Good news. It looks like LG heard about my little problem. So they came up with a rockin’ new oven that will have the oven clean in minutes, not hours– and with no smelly or harsh chemicals! All you need is water!
ranges It’s called the LG’s EasyClean™ Double Oven Range, and its sole purpose for existing is to make it possible for us to eat our favorite sticky, messy recipes and still have a clean kitchen!! Pretty impressive, right? It provides a quick and convenient way to clean your oven, while still being able to use the conventional self-clean method. Three simple steps take from your “ick” to clean in a matter of minutes: spray the inside of the oven with water, press the EasyClean button, and in just 20 minutes you can wipe away any residual bits of grime! Pretty impressive right?? Screen Shot 2013-05-15 at 11.42.45 PM
