Recipe: Monkey Bread

One of our favorite traditions during the Holidays is to have Monkey Bread on Christmas Morning.  This year was a challenge because of the whole gluten-issue, but I searched and prayed and searched some more and thanks be to God, we had our Monkey Bread on Christmas morning.  And again on New Years! 

When Drummer saw it come out of the oven he said –
“Who says gluten-free can’t look good?”

Then after he said – “who says gluten-free can’t taste good?”
(And he’s NOT my gluten-free child!!)
