Cinnamon Dough Bites

Patience is a funny thing. Apparently, if you let me remove something tasty (especially something that smells like cinnamon-y heaven) from the oven and tell me to “wait,” I think patience is overrated. This was supposed to resemble what most people call “Monkey Bread.” You know… that bundt-shaped mound of cinnamon roll-y cake that you pull apart with your hands?

See – I did everything right… I made the little balls of dough, dipped them in melted butter, and rolled them in cinnamon sugar. Then, I piled them into a bundt pan. See?

Such good intentions...

And then…. The oven went beep beep beep. I cracked the door and the most satisfying smell ever filled my nostrils. I was suddenly overcome with happiness, excitement, and hunger. And I completed ignored the recipe I’d been following. Patience IS a funny thing.

It’s a good thing that sometimes, when you ignore instructions, everything still turns out perfectly.
