I love being in the kitchen with Amara and we both love making monkey bread! It has been almost 4 years since we made that first loaf of Monkey Bread. Since then we’ve made all kinds of monkey bread in our search for the best one ever. We made a Chocolate Orange Monkey Bread with Star Wars decorations for her Dad on his birthday. We made the Cream Cheese Monkey Bread that Mommy requested. There have been a couple of other recipes, too. So far, we are all in agreement that the original was the best. We even made Apple Fritter Bites that we all loved and devoured. They took us on a search to find the perfect recipe for Apple Fritter Monkey Bread! I’m not sure how I came across this recipe for Awesome Country Apple Fritter Bread but I knew we had to try it out!
I peeled the apples for Amara but she chopped them and did everything else. Grandma’s only complaint would be that this recipe requires you to get at least 4 bowls dirty! But it was sure worth it. Amara said it is definitely not a monkey bread but delicious nonetheless! I was shocked that we had any leftover but it was just the three of us for breakfast. I am here to tell you that it sure was good warmed up for about 20 seconds that afternoon!
The best part of baking with Amara is the conversation. We talked about how her hermit crabs are doing and about swim class. We talked about all our baking and decided we needed to update her recipe book to include all of these new recipes. I suggested she try finding a recipe for something for dinner that we could try one time. She liked that idea and announced that she would like to learn how to bake bread from scratch – followed by cinnamon bread and maybe cinnamon rolls!
It is going to be a yummy summer! I can’t wait!
