Monkey Bread

The other day I was talking to some girls on Twitter and could not believe that some people didn't know what Monkey Bread was. {gasp} It's only the yummiest breakfast rolls ever! Seriously, make them. You'll love it.

If you google monkey bread there's probably a million and a half recipes for it, crazy. But this my friends is the best. Why? Because I said so. Actually it's the only one I have had but it is good! Besides, it's probably one of the easiest ones to make too.

Ingredients:
1/2 a bag of Rhodes frozen rolls (about 18)
1 box of cook and serve butterscotch pudding (NOT instant pudding)
1 stick of butter
3/4 cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon

The night before:

*Melt butter and mix with brown sugar and cinnamon

*Put the rolls in a buttered bundt cake pan. (do not use an angel food cake pan...your oven will hate you for it)

*Sprinkle the pudding powder over the rolls.

*Then pour the butter/sugar mix over that.

*Then just leave it on your counter over night and in the morning they should look kind of like this...

(Side note: I accidentally bought instant pudding instead of the cook and serve kind. It still turned out but it definitely makes a difference...so don't make the same mistake I did) :)

*Bake at 350 degrees for about 25 minutes.
*Flip over the pan and dump the monkey bread out on a plate/tray.
*Serve and enjoy!

DANGEROUS! ADDICTING!
I have the same recipe. I add raisins sometimes to make them more like cinnamon buns!

never heard of it before...but I am now drooling!

Bethany said...

That looks better than the recipe I have. The one I've used is premade biscuits and cinnamon + sugar + butter. It's yummy, but yeast rolls look so much better.

And I have used a angel food pan before, so I know exactly what you mean!
