Go anywhere on the internet such as Pinterest and you’ll see recipes galore. In fact, you could probably find a recipe for just about anything. Some recipes we kept seeing over and over again were a recipes for different types of Monkey Bread. We had to see what all the fuss was about, and the Monkey Bread definitely live up to par. Think of these little guys almost as cinnamon roll, muffin hybrids; they can with all the flavor or a cinnamon roll in the size of a muffin. And to top things off they’re really easy to make. So what are you waiting for, get to baking!
