Amazing Monkey Bread

Recipe by  

"This recipe is a big treat, and I often make it at our lake house when we takes guests there. Use the maximum amount of brown sugar listed and all of the pudding package for a sweeter dish. The corn syrup makes it gooey! Make sure you plan ahead - this recipe needs to sit overnight."

This was pretty good. I halved the recipe and baked it in a loaf pan. When making this recipe I would put some of the pecans on the bottom of the pan before putting in the frozen rolls.

YUMMY! I cut the rolls into fourths and rolled them in vanilla cook and serve pudding powder. I also used 1/2 butterscotch and 1/2 vanilla pudding. After dissolving the brown sugar in the butter I added the pudding mixture to it. No gritty crunch from the sugar. Everything melted and blended together beautifully. So good!

I left out the corn syrup and it was still delicious. It does rise quite a bit so I would recommend placing foil over the top then a cookie sheet and something heavy to keep it all in. Make sure you let it set after removing from the oven to let all the juices cool to a syrup and soak into the bread.

We call this recipe "Butterscotch Bubble Loaf", but "Amazing Monkey Bread" works as well. Vanilla pudding works good as a substitute, but I like it best with butterscotch pudding.
