Gooey, sticky, and sweet, monkey bread is indulgence at its best. Although there’s all kinds of savory varieties now, I can’t help but fall back to the sweeter side. Luckily there’s a recipe for every kind of sweet tooth, including these 10 we found on Pinterest.

1. Salted Caramel Monkey Bread from The Domestic Rebel

Caramel sauce gives this bread an extra-gooey factor, while the shower of sea salt at the end adds just enough intrigue to keep you coming back for more.

3. Apple Pecan Monkey Bread from Great Grub, Delicious Treats

This is the perfect recipe to use up some of the apples you picked this weekend. Paired with pecans, this recipe is a natural for fall.

4. Praline Pecan Monkey Bread from Melissa’s Southern Style Kitchen

The recipe for praline is, at the very least, sugar and nuts. Soft and sticky monkey bread can use some crunch from time to time, so a spin inspired by pralines is a great choice.

5. Apple Fritter Monkey Bread from Pack Momma

When I think of apple fritters, I picture soft apples, warm smells of cinnamon, and creamy glaze. This recipe has all three.

7. Carrot Cake Monkey Bread from Something Swanky

A box of carrot cake lends a hand in making this dough. And don’t forget the cream cheese frosting — every carrot cake needs it.

8. Blueberry Lemon Monkey Bread from Mind Over Batter

Not all monkey breads are created equal. There’s a time for rich cinnamon-sugar, but there’s also a time for fruity and bright blueberry and lemon.

You can add bacon to other baked goods, so it’s only natural to see it show up here. It’s a lovely savory note — especially glazed in bourbon and brown sugar.
