There's something about this ooey-gooey cinnamon-y bread that makes it perfect for special occasions or Saturday mornings. And the fact that it goes together in a snap is enough to make us happy. We like to serve it for breakfast every holiday, with a big glass of milk!
20 frozen dinner rolls (we like Rhodes best)
3/4 to 1 c. brown sugar
1/2 pkg. (or more) cook and serve vanilla pudding
1-1/2 tsp. cinnamon
6 TBSP butter
Coat a bundt pan thoroughly with cooking spray. Place your frozen rolls in the bottom of the pan. Sprinkle over rolls – brown sugar, pudding, cinnamon. Top it all off with small chunks of butter. (You can use more butter if you like your bread more syrup-y.) Cover bundt pan with greased waxed paper and place in a warm area overnight. In the morning, bake your Monkey Bread at 325 degrees for 25-30 minutes. While hot, flip your bread onto a pretty platter, and scoop any gooey goodness out on top of the bread. Enjoy!
We always double this. Somehow, one bundt pan is never enough.
xo, the Long ladies
Ps. This bread has been known to fall over the sides of the pan. We would suggest popping an empty cookie sheet onto the oven shelf below. (To prevent any monkey business, you know.)
