A Jan-Kay Flash Back

Every summer my church went to Jan-Kay Ranch for church camp. It brings back such great memories. And, every year, they would serve Monkey Bread! We would all get so excited when we'd see the coffee cans full of this yummy goodness on the tables!!! The one I made seemed a little different, but I think the second recipe is the actual one we ate! :) I'll have to try it next time! All I know is that they're both YUM!!!...
