How can I tell if Monkey Bread is fully Baked?

Monkey Bread is best baked in a well greased bunt pan and can often be difficult to tell if it’s fully cooked. 

Use a sharp knife and poke down to the center and look for the sticky dough texture or the cooked bread dough. 

It can be difficult to tell, and remember with all the cheeses added it’s sometimes misleading.  Watch the Bake Time and directions too.
