Questions, Comments & Reviews
Monkey Bread, also called "Affenbrot" (German, literally meaning "ape bread") Hungarian coffee cake and bubbleloaf, is a sticky, gooey pastry served as a breakfast treat.Recipes for the towering bread first appeared in American women's magazines and community cookbooks in the 1950s. It is made with pieces of sweet yeast dough which are baked in a cake pan at high heat after first being individually covered in melted butter, cinnamon, sugar and chopped pecans.  It is traditionally served hot so that the baked segments can be easily torn away with the fingers and eaten by hand.[
