Sticky Cinnamon-Sugar Monkey Bread

“You can do all the prep work for this monkey bread the night before. I prepare the dough pieces and put all the sauce ingredients in the pan so it’s ready for the morning. You can sprinkle chopped nuts in with the dough pieces before pouring the sauce on and baking.” — Diana Kunselman, Rimersburg, Pennsylvania
