Why Is It Called Monkey Bread?

edMonkey bread, also sometimes known as pull-apart bread, is a sweet, sticky dessert that is believed to have gotten its name from the way it’s eaten. It is believed that one would pick off pieces of the bread like a monkey would from a tree which is why the name “monkey bread” has stuck. Its generous layer of caramel, pecan, and cinnamon make it a sweet go-to snack that can be enjoyed as either a breakfast or dessert item.
