Welcome to the world of monkey bread – the place where everybody is happy! Until now I haven’t met anyone who didn’t like monkey bread. Or nobody dared to tell me :P

If you don’t wanna share a big one with the whole family you can try to make some smaller, individual ones. They usually come out of the tin very easy and look super nice. Serve them while still warm with some ice cream. True comfort food!

  • 1 package dry yeast
  • 25g sugar
