I remember my mom making monkey bread when I was a little bitty girl. It was one of my favorite things on earth. I have to say I've been a pretty smart girl since I was that bitty. Anything with a stick of butter equals smarts. Butter is my bestie.
I love that this recipe card was written by my mom. I have some really good recipes still handwritten. Even with all the Internet options I pull up old posts from here (click on the sidebar, RECIPE) or I grab my recipe book for old favorites. Speaking of favorites, this cake might just be the best cake on the planet. You can always find my jalapeno ranch dip on the blog too.
