Who doesn’t love this gooey cinnamon Monkey Bread? It’s like eating freshly baked cinnamon rolls without all the work. I made this in my cast iron bread pan but any bread pan will work.
According to Wikipedia, Monkey Bread was named this because it is picked apart when we eat it just like a monkey does with their food. The name has definitely stuck because it has been called this for as long as I can remember.
This bread can also be made with brown sugar sprinkled all over the top before baking. You can make a white frosting and drizzle it all over the top after baking. Any way you fix it, it is so good!!!
