Due to my ties with food science and thus, baking (thanks Science Olympiad!), I try to keep my skills reasonably sharp. Thus, it’s become a tradition for me to bake something for my birthday. Around a month before my birthday happens, I keep an eye out for recipes. This year, I saw a tweet from Food Network for a monkey bread recipe. The description sounded too delectable not to try, and it was nowhere near complicated. I was able to create this sugar-cakeish-thing in about 1.5 hours the day before my birthday.
