Pull-Apart Monggo Bread Ingredients

  • 2 cups milk
  • 1/2 Cup Oil
  • 3/4 Cup sugar
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons instant dry yeast
  • 4 1/2 Cup all-purpose flour divided
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon Baking soda
  • 1/2 tablespoon Salt
  • 1 1/4 Cup sugar
  • 1/2 Cup Butter melted
  • 3/4 Cup store-brought sweetened red beans mashed
  • 1 Cup icing sugar
  • 1/2 Cup milk powder
  • 1/4 Cup water
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla


  • Heat milk, oil, and sugar in a med. saucepan just until sugar is dissolved. Set aside to cool to 110 – 120°F.
  • Sift flour into a bowl, and stir in yeast. Make a well and pour in milk mixture; stir until just combined. Cover with a clean kitchen towel, and set aside for 1 hour in a warm place.
  • Preheat oven to 375°F. Generously butter a bundt pan. Set aside.
  • Uncover dough; add baking powder, baking soda, salt, and remaining flour. Stir just enough to loosen dough from bowl and turn out into a floured surface. Knead until dough is smooth, about 5 minutes.
  • Mix sugar and mashed monggo in a med. bowl. Cut off small pieces of dough using a knife or bench scraper, and roughly roll into balls. Coat in monggo mixture, and place in prepared bundt pan, overlapping to make 2 layers. Set aside to rise 10 minutes.
  • Bake 20 minutes, covering loosely with foil if top browns too quickly.
  • Meanwhile, make glaze: Sift icing sugar and milk powder into a bowl. Add water and vanilla, and mix to blend into a thick glaze. Drizzle over top of baked monggo bread. Recipe originally published in the October 2014 issue of Good Housekeeping Philippines.
