While putting together our Man's Guide To Baking, Richard Burr from The Great British Bake Off introduced us to Monkey bread and life hasn't quite been the same since.

“Being a builder,” says Richard, "I’m pretty much pathologically addicted to doughnuts. Monkey bread is basically a giant pile of doughnuts stuck together, which you cook in a cake tin.

“You make lots and lots of small doughnuts and roll them in cinnamon and sugar so they get covered and then you bake them. When you eat it, you pull them off in chunks. The cooked sugar that holds the whole thing together can be pulled apart really easily – it’s so satisfying. You could pour almost an entire bottle of maple syrup on there too, then serve it with some ice cream.

“My main tip would be to make the doughnuts small. If you make them too big, they won’t cook from the inside-out, like they’re supposed to.”
