Monkey Bread: A Family Tradition

Hey y’all! So, I promised, in my last post, WHOA It’s Almost Christmas!, to post my family’s monkey bread recipe. If some of you missed that post, I mentioned that my family always has monkey bread on Christmas morning. Several of you mentioned in the comments that you’d really like to see the recipe, so here it is! I hope you like it : )


Frozen Dinner Rolls

3.5 oz Box of Butterscotch Pudding (The Jell-O brand always works best for me; make sure you get the powder to make a pudding and not the pudding itself)

1 Stick of Butter

3/4 Cup of Brown Sugar

3/4 Teaspoon of Cinnamon

(This recipe is very easy; there are few ingredients and the process of making it isn’t that hard)


Lightly spray a Bundt (Every time I say/write that word I think of the movie My Big Fat Greek Wedding) pan with a cooking spray. Arrange the rolls inside the greased pan. Next, sprinkle the pudding powder over the rolls. Heat the butter, brown sugar, and cinnamon in a saucepan. When it starts to bubble, remove it from the heat and pour it over the frozen rolls. Cover with aluminum foil as tightly as possible, then set aside to rise overnight. In the morning, heat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit (175 degrees Celsius), remove the foil and place the Bundt pan full of rolls in the oven. Bake for 30 minutes, then remove from oven and let cool. Cool for at least 10 minutes inside the pan, then flip the bread onto a plate. Enjoy!

This recipe is delicious, and I hope you like it as much as I do! If you try it, I’d love to know how you like it! Like this post and comment below with your thoughts!
