This taste just like, if not better than a warmed cinnamon bun. These are to die for served warm just out of the oven slathered with butter. Their easy to make, cause you make them with store-bought bread dough, although I have made this method using homemade bread dough also (note prep time includes 24 hour refrigeration rising time).
- 2 loaves frozen bread dough, thawed (1 pound)
- 1⁄2 cup sugar
- 1 tablespoon cinnamon
- 3⁄4 cup finely chopped pecans or 3⁄4 cup walnuts
- 3⁄4 cup butter, melted
- 1 (3 ounce) package butterscotch pudding mix (NOT instant)
- 1⁄2 cup firmly packed brown sugar
- Grease a 12-cup Bundt pan.
- Cut each thawed loaf into 8 slices.
- Combine white sugar with cinnamon and nuts in a small bowl.
- Melt the 3/4 cup butter.
- Dip each slice of dough into melted butter, then coat with cinnamon/sugar mixture.
- Stand slices upright in prepared pan. Sprinkle any remaining cinnamon mixture over rolls, then sprinkle with dry pudding mix.
- Stir brown sugar into remaining melted butter; pour over rolls.
- Cover tightly with plastic wrap; refrigerate for several hours or overnight (rolls should rise to top of the pan).
- The next day (or several hours later), remove rolls from refrigerator, remove the plastic wrap; let stand at room temperature for 15 minutes.
- Bake in a 325° oven for 35-40 minutes.
- Invert onto a serving dish, remove pan, serve warm.
Very easy and delicious! I'm sure frozen bread rolls could be used, but the slices of bread dough were easy to work with and very attractive at serving. Rolling the dough in cinnamon sugar is the other thing that sets this recipe apart from other overnight coffee cakes/rolls. The only problem I had was my rolls did not rise at all in the fridge, probably because I keep it pretty cold. Next time I'll just leave them on the counter or inside a cold oven overnight. Thanks, Kittencal, for sharing your yummy recipe!
This is simply delicious. Took it to my Bible Study and there was none left.
