Pumpkin Cheesecake Monkey Bread – a sinfully delicious monkey bread perfect for breakfast or fun to eat as a snack. A pull-apart masterpiece!
What a fabulous week! I never thought I’d say that about a work week. But it was a short week plus yesterday I went to a cooking class in Canmore sponsored by my work. It was more like a cooking demo but fun nonetheless. We ate and drank and the chef talked about her recipes and learned about new ingredients. It was wonderful and I’m looking forward to sharing a couple of the recipes I learned with you here.
I’m also excited to share this wonderful recipe for Pumpkin Cheesecake monkey bread because I was inspired by one of you, my favorite people, my readers who gave me the idea to make a pumpkin monkey bread. Of course I didn’t need a lot of convincing seeing how much I love to bake. But I especially love making monkey bread because they are so much fun and easy to make.
Monkey bread also goes by many names, monkey brains, bubble bread or pull apart bread. But no matter what its name is, one thing is for sure. It’s a sinfully delicious sweet bread that everyone will love and enjoy eating. So while I have a few variates of monkey bread here on my blog, I don’t know if I can pick a favorite. This one is definitely yummy, especially now since I think is the right season for pumpkin monkey bread, because believe it or not, fall is here. And snow is here next week for us Calgarians, but that’s a story for another time.
