Monkey Bread

Hello, hello! I hope all of you enjoyed Thanksgiving weekend. It was so nice to have such a long weekend and after having five days off from work, I don't want to go back ;)

Would you want to leave this view??

And of course I had to stop here :)

I loved spending so much time with my family and I ate entirely too much. Time to get back on track! 

But before I get carried away with fruits and veggies, I want to share a recipe for Monkey Bread with you. My mom made this version for Thanksgiving morning and we couldn't get enough of it.

You've probably seem monkey bread recipes before, but this baked good was new to me. It is so delicious and hard to eat just one piece! So dangerous :)

Monkey Bread

Recipe from the Bridgford Parkerhouse Roll packaging :)


1 package Bridgford Parkerhouse Rolls, thawed
¼ cup granulated sugar
½ cup melted butter
1 cup brown sugar
1 oz package regular butterscotch pudding mix (not instant)
2 tsp cinnamon


Grease a tube pan. Mix the sugars, pudding mix and cinnamon. Set aside. Sprinkle ¼ cup of sugar mixture on the bottom of the tube pan. Dip each piece of dough into the melted butter and roll it in remaining sugar mixture. Evenly place each piece into the tube pan. Top with the remaining butter and sugar mixture. Let the dough rise until it doubles in size. Bake at 350 degrees for 25-30 minutes, or until it is well browned. Remove from the oven and invert on a large serving dish. Monkey bread is best served warm.

See ya on Wednesday with a new workout to help burn some of these holiday calories :)


  1. This looks delicious. I might try for Christmas morning. Can you tell me please what Bridgeford Parker House Rolls look like? Is a frozen dough or are they already made? In freezer section or dairy section or bread section of grocery? If I can't find Bridgeford do you have another suggestion? Thanks so much

  2. Hi, Tonilea. You will live this for Christmas morning. The rolls are actually frozen dinner roll dough, in the frozen roll/bread/biscuit section. Any yeast rolls or dough should work just fine. Other brands I can think of are Rhodes and Sister Schubert's. I hope this helps :)

  3. Thank you. I have seen Rhodes and Sister Shubert before. I hope I can wait til Christmas to make this but just maybe I will decide I need to try it out ahead of time, just to be sure it's good, you know. I wouldn't want to take any unnecessary chances! I doubt my Pilates teacher would go along with my reasoning, but it IS Christmas time!!!
    thanks again
