Good things happen when there is Monkey Bread involved. It’s just a fact and there’s no way around it. It might not be the best for any kind of diet, but it’s pretty good for just about everything else in the world. Having some issues at work – monkey bread is the answer. Can’t figure out what to buy your sweetie for the holidays – monkey bread is the answer. Need a little sweet treat – monkey bread is the answer. See what I mean? It works wonders.

This Cinnamon Apple Monkey Bread rocks my socks. It’s almost like getting a serving of fruit too, since you know there are apples in it and all. I whipped some of these up at work the other day, and again for some friends when they came over for dinner, and it’s just kinda awesome. Not to mention crazy easy and tasty. You just need to make it. And then take one of the little mini Cinnamon Apple Monkey Bread bundts and relax on the couch. It’s the right thing to do, trust me đŸ™‚

    I tried these and really liked them but I also added 2 t. of dry butterscotch pudding mix in with cinnamon sugar mix. It just heightened the caramel cinnamon level.

    Can you make these ahead (say make the night before) and bake the next day?
    What about using peaches?
