With the use of the dough hook, the ingredients are quickly put together for an overnight rise. A little assembly in the morning is rewarded with a wonderfully sticky, pull-apart bread.
For the Dough:
1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter
1 cup whole milk
1/3 cup lukewarm water (105 to 115 degrees F)
One 1/4-ounce package dry yeast (2 1/4 teaspoons)
1/3 cup sugar
2 large eggs
1 teaspoon salt
4 1/4 cups (or more) all-purpose flour
For the Coffee Cake:
Nonstick vegetable oil cooking spray
1 cup toasted chopped pecans

1 1/4 cups firmly packed golden brown sugar
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons (1 1/4 sticks) unsalted butter, melted
5 tablespoons honey
Pull-Apart Honey-Pecan Coffee Cake Recipe at
Melt butter in heavy small saucepan over medium-low heat. Remove from heat; add milk. Let mixture stand until cooled to at least 110 degrees F.

Meanwhile, combine water and yeast in large bowl of heavy-duty stand mixer; let stand until yeast dissolves, about 5 minutes. Add milk mixture, sugar, eggs and salt. Using dough hook, mix on high speed until eggs are blended. Gradually mix in 4 1/4 cups flour. Continue kneading on medium speed until dough is smooth and pulls away from sides of bowl, adding more flour if necessary, about 5 minutes. Remove dough from bowl; form into ball. Sprinkle some flour into bottom of mixing bowl; return dough to bowl. Cover and chill overnight.

Spray 10-inch-diameter angel food cake pan with nonstick spray. Sprinkle pecans evenly over bottom of pan. Punch dough down. Roll out dough on lightly floured work surface to 10-inch square. Cut dough into five 2-inch-wide strips. Cut each strip into five 2-inch squares, creating 25 pieces total.

Combine brown sugar and cinnamon in medium bowl. Dip each dough piece into melted butter, then into brown sugar mixture, coating each piece evenly. Transfer each piece to waxed paper-lined baking sheet.

Combine all remaining melted butter (about 2 tablespoons) with all remaining brown sugar mixture (2 to 3 tablespoons). Stir 3 tablespoons honey into brown sugar mixture. Pour honey mixture evenly over pecans in pan. Arrange dough pieces atop pecans, spacing evenly and creating two layers. Drizzle dough with remaining 3 tablespoons honey. Let rise in warm draft-free area until almost doubled, about 1 hour 15 minutes. Meanwhile, preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Bake coffee cake until golden brown, about 55 minutes. Cool on rack 10 minutes. Turn coffee cake out onto platter. Serve warm or at room temperature.

Is this "Monkey Bread"?
This recipe sounds super, but seems to be what I have been making for years called "Monkey Bread". The same result but using the cheap buttermilk biscuits that come 4 in a pack. No mixing, no rising. Just cut each biscut into 4, dip in butter and sugar, and proceed from there. Results are super! Can be done before breakfast and served with breakfast. So easy!
