Thanks!  Daughter has company coming home with her tonight to sleep on the couch, so I think I'll make this to have for them (and me, me, me!)  in the morning. It sounds reeeeeeally good!  ;D

My measurements are for a roughly half batch.  I recommend the measurements from the second recipe (1-hour cinnamon roll recipe) for three people with a bit leftover.

So it's a bit pathetic, but yes, this sunshine has lead to this lass (from Southern California) getting sunburn.... I've gone all pasty in the last decade!!!

I didn't know I was going to St. Andrews until we started driving there!

That's how we do day trips... get in the car and drive with no predetermined destination in mind.

I plan stuff out if it's a longer trip.

We had a lovely lunch at Tailend seafood.  Didn't have room for gelato!

What's the story in Balamory? Wouldn't you like to know?

That's the kids show set in the village with the colourful houses. Had an African American painter. I loved it.

Nan, I saw Breyers in Tesco the other day

Although, I think that looks like a yucky 'low sugar' version with sweeteners , upon reading it?

Alas, sun hasn't made it's glorious promised glory up this way. Quite cloudy, keep thinking it's going to rain.  But warm, at 16ºC

Yeah, the mint choco chip is ok for the Daughter as it doesn't have Aspertame or Sucralose in it.  ;D She can eat it just fine. I can only have small amounts of ice cream anyway, or my gut goes nuts regardless of what's in it, and I can have my little dish of it just fine, too!  We got it from Tesco on our last shop delivery. It's low-cal, as well.

Ah yeah, lactose + sugar alcohols can be a bad mix for many! If I could eat much milk I could actually have that one but my stomach hates cream.

Man. I miss good coconut milk ice cream so much. Ice cream maker, or at least popsicle molds, are on now the "to buy sometime" list!

Really? I was in Watt Bros the other day (city center) and they had an ice-cream maker for 24 pounds.

Going back on Monday to get some legal things taken care of, may stop back in and pick that up. Would be nice to put some fruit juice, etc., in there this summer to have for desserts. (Desserts = pudding? Citrus pudding just sounds so awful and...clottey.)

Oh that's good to know! Italy is near the top of my "need to visit" list just behind Iceland.

Well, that explains it!  My family lived in Germany in the very-late 80's, and an ice cream van came around in the summer selling "Italian Eis".  It didn't taste like any other ice cream I'd ever had.  The cones were tiny, but they were inexpensive.

The monkey bread, aside from the cinderized bits, was excellent! ;D

So you had that, too?  I thought it was just because my slow-cooker was really cheap.  Today when I made stuffed bell peppers in the slow-cooker, one of the peppers touching the same section of the pot also got a bit blackened and stuck to the side a bit.  Maybe all slow-cookers have a hot spot in them.

But, yeah... I enjoyed it, and will make it again.  :)

I didn't have any parchment paper, so I used foil, which really shouldn't have made that much of a difference. I think that if I make it again I will put it in a dish set in the cooker, so that it doesn't directly touch the sides.  Interestingly, the bread all along the back of the ceramic pot burned the worst, and the bottom not quite as badly, and it didn't burn on the ones in the front. So yup, there's definitely hot spots! (Since the element is under the pot, I would have thought it would have been the bottom that burned. Huh.)

Perhaps cutting the cooking time down would help?  I've always heard that the difference between high and low on a slow cooker was just the amount of time it takes to get to the "cruising" temp, so putting it on low probably wouldn't make a difference. Mine also has a "warm" setting, so I wonder if firing it up to the usual cooking temp and then dropping it to warm would cook it through without burning it?

There was enough unburnt that I ate way too much, anyhow, and it was good! Thanks for sharing it!

That's funny, I considered putting it in one of my Pyrex bowls.  But the one I needed to use because the bowl was small enough to fit was dirty, and I was lazy.  I'd planned to do all of the washing up once, after I got the monkey bread started.

Mine burned along the back, too.  And that's where my stuffed pepper stuck and blackened (my husband ate that pepper and I think he found the extra 'char' tasty).

I'm glad you liked it!  Did you end up using the measurements from the online recipe, or my measurements?  How much did the full recipe make (my calculations weren't precise, despite what they say about baking being a science)?  My measurements provided enough balls to almost fill the bottom of my oval slow cooker in a single layer.
