Gramercy Tavern's Monkey Bread
To make this monkey bread, balls of buttery brioche are rolled in cinnamon sugar, proofed, and baked in caramel sauce. As if brioche on its own wasn't indulgent enough, The Gramercy Tavern Cookbook uses liberal amounts of heavy cream, dark brown sugar, and fresh vanilla bean as the perfect foil for the light, sugar-crusted dough.
