We have made and posted about Monkey Bread before, but instead of editing an old recipe (with pictures that aren’t the best), I decided that I would just start a new one and link back the original.
Monkey Bread seems to be a little tricky for us. Every recipe that I found says that it should only take about 25-30 minutes to bake. In my experience — three times — it takes way longer than that. The first two times were in an older oven in a rental so we had no control over it. This time, our oven is 5 months old so I doubt it has anything to do with the oven. I did have a follower on Instagram think that it could be elevation… but I honestly don’t know for sure.
So with that being said, I would make sure to try this recipe out before you actually make it for company so that you can be prepared and have it fresh out of the oven for company or family. Start with the 25-30 minutes and go from there. If you have any ideas as to what I could be doing wrong, I would love to here them!
