  • My mom makes "pluckit" bread which I guess is basically monkey bread... except I have no idea where the the name monkey bread came from. Pluckit bread makes much more sense. Mom's is a homemade yeast dough balls (golf ball sized) rolled in cinnamon/sugar mixture that is layered with a brown sugar syrup with pecans. Its super sticky and moist and the syrup will amost string when you pull it apart.

  • In my family, we call any kind of pull apart bread "monkey" bread. My mom makes a garlic and herb monkey bread that is just awesome!

  • 1 - roll dough peices in a cinnamon-sugar mix, make a caramel-y syrup to pour over, bake, and eat. I've never heard of any other version, other than using different kinds of dough, or some using pudding mix instead of the syrup.
