Comfort, fast and easy…not sure why though…I usually like to try and make more complicated things…but I guess I’m a pretty simple gal…

TWEAK TIME!

One of the most deliciously fun things to make is Monkey Bread! Roll up some Pillsbury biscuit dough, roll it in cinnamon and sugar, stuff into a loaf pan helter skelter and pour over melted butter and bake! easy peasy lemon squeezy!

What I never understood though…is why is it called MONKEY bread? So I added my own little tweak to it! I stuffed each biscuit with banana cream cheese! yummmm~

Thanks to my yujs for helping make this and helping to enjoy it as well~<3
