  1. I halved the recipe and baked in a 4x8 loaf pan, the proportion was perfect. I also used real butter in place of the oleo. Yum!
  2. This is a great recipe. I took the suggestion of real butter and added 1 tsp. of pure vanilla. Thanks for the suggestion bhnash and henryclay. I added 1/2 c. of rasins. This is a keeper!UPDATE: 7-16-2010, We are still enjoying this recipe. Recipe has been requested by many. Thanks for posting.
  3. Everyone raved about this...Great taste. I added 1 tsp of vanilla to the sauce.
  4. I've had monkey bread before, but not with pecans! This was fantastic. The family cleaned it up in one sitting!
  5. This was fabulous. And it was a big hit with my entire family. I had a little trouble with the amount of oleo called for though. The recipe calls for 3/4 to 1 1/2 cups oleo, so I split the difference and used 1 cup. It was too much (and I ended up with a lot of the sweet gooey glob on the counter when I inverted the Monkey Bread onto a platter). So next time I'll use the minimum stated of 3/4 cup. But even despite my sticky mess this was decadently wonderful.

I would like to let you all know that I am no longer able to review your recipes that I have tried. since they changed the site around webtv does not supprt zaars new site.I have a webtv not a computer and webtv does not support the new recipezaar site. so I will no longer be able to review your great recipes,nor will I be able to put my own recipes on here.Please don't think I wouldn't like to review your recipes,it was one of the nice parts of zaar that I did enjoy doing. So please forgive!!! I am Married to the same guy for 40 years,I Have 2 beautiful Daughters, who have given me 6 grand and glorious grandchildren. I love to cook,in fact you could call it my favorite hobby My pet peeve is telemarketers,Every time I get busy with my recipe hobby one of them will call and knock me off the web,and of coarse I waste precious time getting back on.I am disabled,so I no longer work,and have plenty of time to pursue my hobby. My best dish I make is Lasagna but thats just because I love lasagna.I am also asked to bring No-Bake cookies at all of our potlucks, and linger-longers at church.Meat loaf is another often requested dish I am asked to bring...... NOT MY meatloaf but .... My husbands. He is as good a cook as I am,He can cook anything I can cook, and I can cook anything he can cook,but some things I make better,and some He makes better...So we do a lot of compromising at our house.
