monkey bread with butter and cinnamon sugar over the top on a green plate.

Monkey Bread in the Microwave

Monkey bread is something I grew up eating as a treat. It took time to prepare, especially when making the dough from scratch and was doused in the most delicious cinnamon sugar mixture. I'd like to say we all have time to do that, but the reality is, we don't! Instead, learn how to make this quick microwaved monkey bread recipe that is done in under 10 minutes.
