monkey bread.

I grew up making monkey bread at campouts.

A 20th-century American classic, monkey bread is a rich, yeast-leavened bread formed from balls of dough that are dipped in melted butter, sprinkled with seasonings and baked in a mold like this one. Recipes for both sweet and savory versions of the golden-brown bread first appeared in women’s magazines and community cookbooks back in the 1950s, and it has remained a favorite ever since.

Maybe that's why I think this baking mix is an amazing idea. Hostess gift or thank you gift perfection. And who would have ever guessed that there is such a thing as a monkey bread baking mold? {Has anyone tried this?}


  1. I've never even heard of monkey bread, but it sounds delicious! How do you eat it? Do you cut it or just pull it apart with your fingers and get gooey?

  2. oh- it's all about the fingers. messy but SO good. I'll have to find a homemade recipe.

  3. Love, love, love monkey bread. Definitely use the fingers.
