Monkey Bread Without Bundt Pan

Laura Bais from Julie's Cafe Bakery
Making monkey bread without a bundt pan is very easy and not very different from making it with one. This recipe will give you delicious monkey bread you can bake in a loaf pan or a baking tray. If you don't have either, feel free to make your own tin-foil monkey bread mold.
