Let’s Bring Back: Monkey Bread: Sweet and Savory
Expert Chef Amy Hoyt is demonstrating a gem from the 70s and 80s: Monkey Bread. The origins of this bread are uncertain – but it is a true American original and is virtually unknown outside of the United States. The origins of the name itself are equally murky; it In the spirit of bringing great stuff back into the popular culture, bread and pastry has been suggested that watching people eat monkey bread by pulling it apart mimics apes eating communally – while former First Lady Nancy Reagan (who included a Monkey Bread recipe in an 80s White House cookbook) opined that it may have gotten its name because getting it ready to bake requires a bit of “monkeying around.” Here’s what we know for sure: Monkey Bread is divine and ready for a comeback!
