  8. Dip each ball into the melted butter, then toss in the sugar mixture until coated.
  9. Place each dough ball into the greased bundt pan, repeating until all dough is buttered, sugared, and layered in the pan.
  10. Bake in preheated oven for 25-30 minutes.
  11. While the monkey bread bakes, combine powdered sugar, vanilla bean paste, milk, and heavy whipping cream into a mixing bowl and stir to make a glaze. add more milk for a thinner glaze, if desired.
