Why Is Monkey Bread Called That?

edMonkey Bread is called that because it’s a soft, sweetbread-like snack that is usually pulled apart with your hands, as if monkeys were eating it. This type of snack originated in the United States and is typically made up of small pieces of pre-made dough, rolled in melted butter then rolled in sugar and spices and baked in a cake or Bundt pan. The resulting bread looks like monkeys were pulling it apart with their hands.
