Holiday Recipe

Obviously I have caught the holiday "bug."
My last two posts have had the word "holiday" in the title.
This time of year just makes me happy.  What can I say?
What better way to celebrate the holiday spirit than with a holiday favorite recipe.
I am in charge of brunch on Christmas day in my family.
I make this monkey bread every year.
It is a staple.
It is easy.
It is delicious.
And did I say, delicious.
20 unbaked frozen dinner rolls
1 cup brown sugar
¼ cup instant vanilla pudding mix
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1/3 cup butter, melted

Lightly grease a 10 inch bundt cake pan.
Place frozen rolls into the pan and sprinkle with brown sugar, the pudding mix, and cinnamon.
 Pour melted butter over the top.
Cover with a clean, damp cloth and leave overnight at room temperature to rise.
In the morning preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Bake rolls for 25 minutes until golden brown.
Turn rolls out onto a serving plate and dig in.
Now, I am aware that healthy is all the rage right now, but I will say that this recipe is worth every calorie and every fat gram.
And it is to be served on Christmas morning . . . can you really worry about your waist size on that day?
Me either.

  1. I am sooo going to make this. The monkey bread I've done in the past uses refrigerated biscuits that you cut in quarters... it's pretty easy, but this sounds even easier!
