Cinnamon Sugar Monkey Bread

With a name like Monkey Bread, one might expect there to be bananas involved.



But there aren’t.  And that’s a good thing.  Bananas can make my stomach turn.  Especially in the morning.  And they don’t go with coffee.  I suppose the Monkey comes in since you eat this with your hands.


And that may or may not be a good thing, depending on the type of company you keep.  Luckily, I made this recipe for brunch with people who I feel totally comfortable picking after and stuffing my face full of cinnamon-y goodness in front of.


Mid -feast the Omnivore suggested a glaze would take the monkey bread up a notch, so I whipped a quick batch up using leftover butter from the recipe, powdered sugar, water, and a dash of vanilla extract.

None of us eating this breakfast had eaten Monkey Bread before, but we’ll definitely be eating it again!

    Though Monkey Bread may not be new, your photos make THIS Monkey Bread look special! I have only made Monkey Bread with frozen bread dough and it never looks nearly as delicious as yours! I will give “from scratch” a try!

    I can’t believe you’ve gone this long without monkey bread! It was a sleepover staple when I was growing up.

      Ha. Well I had one sleepover when I was a kid and I guess we were so hellacious that my mom said NEVER AGAIN! and she stuck to it.
