  2. National Cinnamon Roll Day? Honestly, how could I have missed this? I guess I have a lot of baking to catch up on… Luckily, your fantastic monkey bread looks much easier to put together, and possibly even tastier.

  3. Oooooh vanilla cinnamon sounds like a fabulous flavour combo for monkey bread! I love that this uses pilsbury dough. Sometimes a girl needs her monkey bread ASAP instead of waiting for dough to rise. Love this!
