GRANDMA COCO’S MONKEY BREAD



Grandma Coco’s Monkey Bread is so soft and buttery. It is baked in a bundt pan and the sections just pull apart. It’s a simple bread recipe and a real crowd pleaser. Grandma Coco always serves her monkey bread on holidays and special occasion. This recipe is a must try!

I usually start by splitting the dough into two equal parts for the two pans. Then roll the dough out and cut into circles with a cookie cutter. I used a cookie cutter this time, but I generally just use the rim of a cup.
