This recipe is borrowed from our Frozen themed event (see ‘Sven’s Cinnamon Cake’)! Kids of any age can help with this recipe. Its easy to make, and delicious to eat. The final product resembles bread pudding or monkey bread made from cinnamon french toast – hence the name :) We’ve amped up the nutrition with fresh blueberries (antioxidant power), coconut milk (fiber & immunity boosting vitamins) and cinnamon (calcium & iron).
