Frozen monkey bread is a simple and easy way to serve a deliciously gooey treat. It’s ideal for gatherings, breakfast or brunch, as a snack or dessert. This monkey bread is microwavable, oven-ready and air fryer friendly. I use Bridgford’s Cinnamon Monkey Bread Cinnamon Pull-Apart (made from frozen bread dough) because it is ready to make right out of the package – just heat and serve – and their new packaging is even more environmentally friendly.

These cinnamon pull-aparts are a fun way to get the kids involved with food! Older kids can make something delicious all by themselves if they know how to safely use a microwave.

What is Monkey Bread?

Monkey bread is a sweet dough, baked in bite-sized chunks and drizzled with sugar and cinnamon glaze. This frozen monkey bread recipe uses Bridgford frozen Cinnamon Monkey Bread (cinnamon bread pull-apart) to save time. Keep a package of it in your freezer so you can serve it at any time.

You can’t beat the deliciousness of bite-sized, sticky cinnamon sugar rolls, covered in a rich, thick caramel sauce. Right?

Using frozen pre-made monkey bread makes this super simple – it goes from the freezer to the oven or microwave (no rising or thawing needed!) then serve.

Plus, Bridgford’s monkey bread has an enclosed baking tray that is made from over 90% useable, sustainable materials and you can toss it into your recycling container once it has been used.
