Anna’s Momma’s Monkey Bread

Start this 12 hours before you want to eat it (the night before).


  • 1 package frozen yeast rolls (24 ct)
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1 3.5 oz box regular vanilla pudding mix (NOT instant)
  • 1/4 cup white sugar
  • 1 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup (or a few handfuls) chopped nuts
  • 1 stick (1/2 cup) butter, melted

Grease and flour a bundt or tube pan.

Place the frozen rolls in the pan. Mix sugars, pudding, and cinnamon in a small bowl. Sprinkle over the rolls in the pan. Pour the melted butter over the rolls.

Leave on the counter overnight (DO NOT COVER). In the morning, bake in a preheated 350 degree oven for 30 minutes. Let stand 5 minutes, then invert the pan onto a large plate and sprinkle with nuts. Serve immediately.

(Fill the pan with hot water immediately too, and add a spoonful of baking soda – that way you’ll not end up with caked on sugary goo in your pan!)

  1. It’s called Monkey Bread because when everyone smells it, they come running and pull the bread apart with their hands, like monkeys. No actual monkeys baked in.
