A couple of years ago we had a bring a work pot-luck Christmas lunch. One of the staff members (from a Southern US state) brought in what she described as overnight bread, and what she said her family called Monkey Bread. They had it every Christmas morning.

I can see why you'd choose to have it perhaps just once a year, it's very rich and very sweet, and contains no fibre whatsoever. But very very tasty! For the last couple of years, Jeff and I have incorporated her tradition into ours. This year, we did the same.

After Christmas Eve at Jeff's oldest brother's house, and just before we went to bed, we did the minor initial assemblage for the bread. In the morning we (and when I say we, I really mean Jeff) got out of bed and popped the tray into the oven. Cue amazing smells and Monkey Bread came again this Christmas.
