Some of my favorite food comes from a Bundt pan! I worked with a sweet lady who brought monkey bread for every special occasion. I think we made up special occasions just so we could eat monkey bread!
Of course, that was before I was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes in 1994. Things have changed in my diet significantly since then! But I can still write about monkey bread and all sorts of goodies without my blood glucose being affected – and that’s a good thing!
I like what Lucinda has to say about monkey bread – for sure! 🙂
Don’t you particularly appreciate the last stanza of her poem? I sure do! I’m so thankful that God sticks close by my side and that His angels watch over us as we live our everyday lives. It’s great to know that He has every life situation under control – even when we wonder if it is under control – ya know? 😉
Here’s a traditional recipe for monkey bread – ooey gooey and sticky good!
Here’s an alternate recipe that cuts a whopping 300 calories per serving and saves on sodium as well – I think you’ll like it. One note I will add – I never use sugar, as you know. I always use Splenda and Splenda brown sugar. You can use it cup for cup – just use it as you would sugar.
For 234 calories per serving, you can afford to splurge a bit today! I would guess it would be even fewer calories if you use the Splenda sugars.
You know, one thing my mother taught me was that when we bake for someone, we’re really showing them love! There are so many ways of telling someone you love them – and that’s why we call comfort food – well… comfort food! Share some monkey bread with a friend or loved one today – along with God’s love!
Hopefully you will have an opportunity to make one of these great recipes today – and use that Bundt pan that’s been setting in the cupboard for such a long time – feeling all neglected and sad. 😦
