Why do they call it monkey bread?

What is monkey bread anyways? If you don’t already know, then you are in for a treat! Monkey Bread is a delicious pastry treat that is soft, moist, sweet, and a little bit sticky. It looks like a cake (and is usually baked in a bundt cake pan), but it’s more like a sweet bread.

It’s like balls of dough squished and baked together, then topped with a sticky sweet icing or glaze, or often times just cinnamon sugar. It’s a pull apart bread that is meant to be eaten with your hands, which is why they call it monkey bread!
