These could not be any easier! I love how little time they took. I made them sweet and added coarsely chopped pecans between layers. I took them to a baby shower and only 3 pieces were left. I am making a second batch tonight for my family! They weren't ooey gooey, so if you want them that way, sprinkle extra cinnamon/sugar between the layers (which is what I plan on doing tonight). These were much better than ones made with canned biscuits!

Very good, not too sweet and easy to make. I added 50g mixed peels and nutmeg & cinnamon powder plus 1 tsp orange zest into the dough then divided into 14 balls and made monkey bread by rolling each dough in cinnamon/light brown sugar mix. Smelled and tasted great. Thanks for the wonderful recipe.

Yummy! I shouldn't have promised to share! These are too good to share.<br/><br/>The Cinnamon/Sugar mix I used was :1 cup sugar; 2 teaspoons cinnamon; 1 cup brown sugar; 1/2 cup chopped pecans (optional, arrange in between dough balls when placing in tin) Baked 350 for 35 minutes

YUM! So good, loved making these as monkey bread with my 2 year old. Your directions are wonderful for making the experience extra special with kids :) They did burn a little on the bottom, but I think it's because we put it on the bottom rack (had a roasting chicken on the top rack). We will definitely make them again, thanks for the keeeper!

Excellent! This is now my "go to" recipe for yeast rolls. I made them as dinner rolls, not monkey bread style but I will try that next go around. I can see where they would be very tasty with the cinnamon and sugar as a sweet treat. Thank you for sharing this recipe!

Delicious! These make the perfect dinner rolls. If making a sweet monkey bread, really pile on the sugar and cinnamon between layers, and don't skimp on the butter.

Made these for Christmas. I didn't have butter, so I brushed with an egg wash (1 egg yolk and 1 T water). Turned out beautiful! and very delicious!
