Happy New Year everybody! I hope everyone has a great year this year! This week’s recipe is one that, despite its lengthy preparation, is incredibly delicious! The recipe for this week also has many different names. I have heard it referred to as cinnamon tear bread, cinnamon pull apart, and monkey bread (as we call it in my family). No matter what you call it, this cinnamon bread is delicious and everyone will enjoy it! Lets get to it:
