This was one of many family favorites,I had to make two pans of monkey bread,with 4 sons and my husband, one was never enough.when our son Matt grew-up and started a family of he own he asked for the recipe so he could make it for his family. Its a pull apart bread that is light and each piece is encrusted with buttery savory goodness. It is really good. Enjoy!
