I was looking for something to serve DD's friends after her slumber party and I chose your recipe. I had some frozen rolls in the freezer and these worked perfectly. I did cut them in half before coating with the butter and rolling in cinnamon sugar mixture. I did not glaze the bread and the girls loved it anyway. Thankyou for sharing withg us.
They are in the oven as I type and I know how good they are going to be without even trying them. I like to make them in small serving sizes for the kids to take to school, so I used frozen bun dough rather than a whole laof and cut each bun into 4 then baked them in muffin tins for 20 minutes. The smell is heavenly. A lady I work with makes them using the buns and just puts the buns into the bundt pan and makes them 12 at a time. I made a double batch and did find I needed more butter and sugar than called for but that is in part to my desire for them to be sticky buns. Will definately be making these more often.
I had never made monkey bread before, but needed something to send to my husband's office Christmas party. I used "Rich Breadmaker Dough" in place of the frozen bread dough. I doubled the brown sugar/butter mixture and had very little left over. The recipe does not state, but I heavily greased my Bundt pan and it released without a hitch. The glaze really makes it -- don't skip!! This will be a repeat for sure! Bug, thank you for your recipe!
