Monkey bread, a.k.a. bubble bread, is usually a sweet yeast bread on the order of sticky buns. The bread dough is rolled into balls, which are dipped into melted butter and nestled side-by-side in the baking pan, then coated with a sugary glaze. The balls bake up all stuck together, and to eat it, everyone plucks a ball from the monkey mass. It was big back in the 50’s, but it’s just as fun to eat now.

Here’s some monkey bread trivia from the Food Timeline.
