Do you ever make something and think, "oh man, if this tastes even half as good as it smells/looks, then it's going to be amazing."
Or end up smacking (multiple) hands trying to keep them away so you can completely finish taking said item out of the pan?
This was one of those things. They smelled fantastic cooking, and looked beautiful as I was taking them out of the pan. I happened to be at my parents house visiting, and my dad couldn't keep his hands off of them. Some of the muffins fell apart as they came out of the pan, and he was snatching those pieces up as quick as he could. And yelping out, "Oh! Hot! Hot!"
I did warn him to be fair, but he retorted that this was how monkey bread is to be eaten--right away, so it's nice and hot. And I think I agree with him!
The flavor of banana bread mixed with cinnamon and sugar is so tasty, I couldn't believe it. These were all eaten before I got seconds! Next time I'm making a double batch, that's for sure.
