Guest Feature: In The Kitchen With Dad Making Mini-Monkey Bread With Butterscotch Sauce

In our house, weekends tend to be family time. My husband, Andrew, and Clara are able to do activities they usually wouldn’t during the school week. Often those activities involve chasing, building and all-around mess-making, but occasionally they slow down to share some time together in the kitchen.

Cooking meals is my domain, but Clara and her Dad will venture into the world of baking if the outcome is something that caters to Clara’s inherited sweet tooth. This past weekend they made Monkey Bread, suitably named for an active four-year old, I thought.

Growing up my Mom made a variation of this breakfast sweet bread on the weekends for our family. There are many versions of the recipe out there, but since I prefer to take baking shortcuts where I can, I kept the recipe simple for Clara and Drew by using only five ingredients.

These mini-Monkey Breads are very easy, very delicious and very sweet little pieces of butterscotchy goodness. When they’re fresh from the oven they pull apart into small pieces perfect for little hands. They’re just the thing to compliment a relaxing family weekend breakfast.
