Expert Tips

  • We’re declaring bananas the official fruit of Pinterest. They’re everywhere! Bananas on your smoothie bowls. Bananas as your ice cream. Bananas in your coffee. And now, bananas in your monkey bread. Because what’s not just perfectly, exactly right about that combo? Sweet, ripe bananas are mixed with fluffy crescents and baked in a rich caramel sauce until the most perfect loaf of golden-brown pull-apart bread emerges from the oven. We made this one for breakfast, but, let’s just be honest here—this is the dessert of your dreams. It’s exactly what you’re craving morning, noon or midnight. Because every moment is better with brûlée, don’t you think?
