More About This Recipe
Spiced Eggnog Monkey Bread is the perfect holiday treat for breakfast, brunch or snack time.
The first time I ever ate monkey bread was at my friend Sarah's house. We'd walked home from school on a chilly, winter day and, like a pro, she started pulling cans from the fridge and tossing Pillsbury biscuit pieces with butter and sugar and cinnamon.
It was popped into the oven for a half hour or so, then out came a golden, caramel-y loaf of monkey bread. I thought it was better than donuts. And cinnamon rolls. And cinnamon roll donuts! I pledged to make it again and again.
Monkey bread is such a simple snack. It's easy to pull together, and kids and grown-ups all love the playful, finger-friendly serving style of this warm and sweet comfort treat.
Over the years, I've made dozens of variations on monkey bread. But my favorite has to be the golden Bundt pulled from my oven this week. Spiced with nutmeg and eggnog and topped with a buttery rum frosting, this Spiced Eggnog Monkey Bread may just happen to be better than donuts, and cinnamon rolls, and even the all-time fave monkey bread recipe!
Try tossing a batch together this week, celebrate the holidays with a sweet and simple treat, and enjoy just how fun it can be to eat food with your fingers!
Gather 'round ye olde eggnog yule loaf. Forget about sticky fingers and start celebrating – just pull, eat, and enjoy!
