Preparation Steps:

For the Dough:

Step 1: In a bowl, combine warm milk, sugar, and active dry yeast. Let it sit for 5-10 minutes until the yeast is activated and foamy.

Step 2: In a large mixing bowl, combine the yeast mixture, melted butter, salt, and beaten eggs.

Step 3: Gradually add the flour to form a soft dough. Knead the dough on a floured surface until smooth and elastic.

Step 4: Place the dough in a greased bowl, cover, and let it rise in a warm place until doubled in size (about 1-2 hours).

For Assembly:

Step 5: Preheat the oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease a bundt pan.

Step 6: Punch down the risen dough and divide it into small pieces (about 1 inch in diameter).

Step 7: In a bowl, combine granulated sugar and cinnamon for the coating.

Step 8: Roll each dough piece in melted butter, then coat in the cinnamon-sugar mixture.

Step 9: Arrange the coated dough pieces in the prepared bundt pan.

For the Caramel Glaze:

Step 10: In a saucepan, melt butter, brown sugar, and heavy cream over medium heat. Bring to a gentle boil and let it simmer for 2-3 minutes until slightly thickened.

Step 11: Pour the caramel glaze evenly over the coated dough in the bundt pan.

For Baking:

Step 12: Bake in the preheated oven for 30-40 minutes or until the monkey bread is golden brown and cooked through.

Step 13: Remove from the oven and let it cool for 10-15 minutes before inverting onto a serving plate.

Step 14: Serve the Delicious Monkey Bread warm, pulling apart the gooey pieces for a delightful treat.
