How long does monkey bread keep?

This apple pie monkey bread will keep well for 3 to 4 days in an airtight container, though it is best enjoyed within one or two days. Store it at room temperature.

Can you freeze monkey bread?

If you have any leftovers (lucky you!) you can freeze it for a later date. Wrap it securely in foil and plastic wrap to protect it from freezer burn and it will keep well for one to 2 months. Thaw at room temperature to serve.

What’s the best apple pie filling to use in baking?

For ease and convenience I use a store bought can of apple pie filling. If you like you can make your own filling too, check out my apple pie recipe for a delicious homemade option.

Do you have to make monkey bread in a bundt pan?

Monkey bread is traditionally made in a bundt pan as it helps it to cook evenly through. You can bake it in a loaf or bread pan, just ensure that it’s cooked all the way through. If the top browns too quickly you can cover the top loosely with foil.

  • Grease the pan well before adding in the cinnamon roll and apple pie filling.
  • Make sure that your oven is fully preheated before baking the bread so it cooks through evenly.
  • Leftovers can be warmed through in the oven at 360F for 5 to 10 minutes.

Monkey bread has never been easier to make! 3 ingredients, 10 minutes of prep and one delicious breakfast to serve to the table!
