Easy Monkey Bread

Look closely… Monkey-Bread-006

a little closer… Monkey-Bread-001

Okay, maybe that’s too close.

Monkey-Bread-006 Lets go back to this picture…

Gooey glazed cinnamon and sugar

Piping hot rolls that melt in your mouth

The smell of sweet delicious that knocks you over

Are you hungry?

How about a little sweet love for the family in the morning?  or maybe just for you…for lunch:) Monkey-Bread

MONKEY BREAD!

I know this is common in a lot of houses, but I finally have a food post…and an easy one at that!

Missy and Shelley are usually all over food posts…for good reason!

Hello Easy Recipe:

1.  A bag of frozen Rhodes Rolls.  Let thaw, but not rise, yet.

2. Mix about 3 T of cinnamon and 1 C of  sugar

3.  Melt a half cube of butter

Tear 1 thawed Rhodes roll into 3 chunks.  Dip each chunk lightly in the melted butter and then roll around in the cinnamon sugar.

O Wait…I forgot to tell you to preheat your oven to 350 and spray your pans:)

Layer the sugar coated dough balls into the bottom of the baking dish or in muffin tins…am I using too many adjectives now?…I don’t think so.  Not when we are talking about light, fluffy, sticky, tempting, morsels of delicious monkey bread!

Layer chunks about 2 layers thick if using loaf pan, 3 chunks in each muffin hole if using the tins

Let rise until the bread is about to flow over the dish.

Place it gently in the oven…so you don’t mess with the rising process by popping the dough.

Cook about 20 minutes for a glass bread loaf pan and 13 minutes for the tin muffin pan.  I place tin foil over the top for the last 5 minutes so the middle cooks.

Monkey-Bread-016 Tip:  If you want them hot in the morning, pre-make them the night before and stick in the fridge.  When you wake up the refrigerator has slowed down the rising process so they will be the right size in the morning.  Pop them in the oven and you’ve become a ‘cool’ mom for the day…at least that’s what my daughters tell me!

    If you want to amp it up a little--same idea but a tad more decadent (and easier to make if you just remember the night before)

    Oil a bundt pan and add:
    1 cup pecans (whole or slightly chopped)
    18 frozen Rhodes dinner rolls
    Sprinkle 1 pkg. dry non-instant butterscotch pudding over the top (small box)

    Mix and pour over rolls, pudding and nuts:
    1 cube melted margarine or butter
    3/4 cup brown sugar
    3/4 tsp. cinnamon (or more, depending on your tastes)

    Cover and leave overnight to rise. Bake at 350 for 25 minutes in the morning.

    I learned how to make this in college (20 years ago!) - but we make it in a bundt pan. Then each person just pulls off some chunks of their own...

    Make these a savory dish to serve with spaghetti or lasagna by using Parmesan cheese and Italian seasoning instead of sugar and cinnamon.

    I LOVE this recipe, & have made it a few times (the one I have is a bit simpler, even, if you can imagine that, and uses a tube pan (angel food/bundt pan), and the filling's slightly different...), but DELICIOUS!! :) Love it!! :) Thanks for sharing :)

    I LOVE Monkey Bread. I am from the South and I have NEVER known another human who even knew what Monkey Bread was. This is awesome. My mom uses the Pillsbury biscuits for hers. I bet those taste like momma used to make Great post.

    your monkey bread sounds great....when you refer to a cube of butter do you mean a stick which is 1/2 cup or a tablespoon that is marked on the wrapper?
