Monkey Bread

This is a fun treat to make and eat! My mom used to make this for me when I was a kid. It would be a special treat when she made it! I love making it now for Thanksgiving morning

Monkey Bread is always a great way to brighten a morning!  The aroma when it is baking will wake everyone up and they'll have smiles on their faces.  This recipe is a stand-out, and I especially like the addition of coconut. The Test Kitchen
