Monkey Bread

The origins of this delicious sweet cinnamon bread is unsure. It often referred to by other names such as sticky bread, bubble loaf, golden crown, African coffee cake, monkey brains, or pinch me cake. Recipes for this particular bread started appearing in women's magazines in the 1950's. This bread tends to be popular in the United States, but not widely known elsewhere in the world.

This recipe is a simple and absolutely wonderful version of this savory treat. It is typically served as a breakfast cake but also makes an exquisite snack too. It is sweet enough to be served as a dessert too. Enjoy!
