This version of monkey bread is assembled and then left overnight to rise so all you have to do in the morning is pop it in the oven. It’s perfect for bringing a breakfast snack to a morning activity or as a special treat for your office or family in the morning. I brought it to women’s bible study this week and several people asked for the recipe, so I thought I’d share it here.
24 ounces frozen dinner roll dough
1 c. packed brown sugar
1 (3.4 ounce) package instant butterscotch pudding mix
1/4 c. white sugar
2 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 c. melted butter
Grease and flour a standard-sized bundt pan. Mix brown sugar and pudding mix together and set aside. Mix white sugar and cinnamon together and set aside. Cut the dinner rolls in half or thirds. Place a layer in the bundt pan and cover with the brown sugar mix, then the cinnamon-sugar mix, and then about half of the butter. Repeat with another layer, which should finish off the dough. It will seem you are putting WAY too much sugar-y stuff in, but everything rises considerably so the sugar spreads out. Leave on the counter uncovered overnight. In the morning, preheat the oven to 350. Press down the dough so it fits in the pan again, then bake for 30 minutes. Serve by letting everyone break pieces off.
