More About This Recipe
  • Ever wonder how monkey bread was named? There are several theories, including one that says the loaf resembles the monkey puzzle tree, a relative of the Norfolk Island Pine. Another theory is simply that the pastry is eaten by picking apart the bread as a monkey would. In 1982, former First Lady Nancy Reagan commented to White House Staff that monkey bread was named as such “because when you make it, you have to monkey around with it.” However monkey bread was named and came to be, we are happy that it did. To make it even better, we’ve cut the monkey business down by using just a few simple ingredients and completing the recipe in four easy-to-follow steps. Combining the comfort food taste of Pillsbury biscuits with the sweet taste of warm caramel and cinnamon, this no-fail monkey bread recipe makes 12 servings. Add a glass of milk or serve with coffee and chances of any leftovers are significantly low. Once you’ve mastered this monkey bread, we’ve got more flavours for you to try out, from sweet s’mores to savory buffalo chicken.
