Product Of The Month
Every month we spotlight a bread or product that we sell in our cafés. We hope you enjoy learning a little about them. Stop by any of our locations to sample these treats and take something home to share.
There’s something precious about the love of the food one ate as a child and the happy memories it brings back. For me it is monkey bread—the twisted puzzle of leftover dough ends tossed in cinnamon, sugar and butter all pressed into a loaf pan and baked. Inspired by this childhood favorite, Macrina has been baking monkey bread ever since we opened. Over the years, we have updated and improved our recipe bringing it closer to what I remember. We use our rich brioche dough and layer Granny Smith apples, cinnamon, sugar, melted butter and a sprinkle of sesame seeds for a wonderful nutty finish. We bake it in a handy reheatable paper mold. It’s at its finger-licking best after being warmed at 325°F for 5 to 8 minutes.
