Today On PARADE
Today in my Parade article I’m taking on the sweet task of 12 Creative Takes On Monkey Bread. I thought it would be super fun to share creative takes on this classic pull apart bread that are both sweet and savory. Monkey bread has earned many names through the years. I’ve heard it called bubble bread, pull apart bread, jumble bread, monkey puzzle bread and bubble loaf. It’s one of those beloved classics that conjure up memories of fun times with friends and simple homespun indulgences. Classic monkey bread is made with bits of dough doused with butter and rolled in a sweet mixture of cinnamon and sugar and usually baked in a bundt pan. It’s meant to be shared but, incredibly difficult to keep to yourself. (Link to article below image)
President Ronald Reagan notoriously loved monkey bread and the First Lady often served her own homemade recipe for monkey bread in the White House during his Presidency. The origin of the whimsical name is uncertain but one thing is for sure, monkey bread is an All-American treat.
