unbaked frozen dinner rolls
instant vanilla pudding mix
I am confused, do you prepare the pudding mix? Or just use the powder? I have tried it both ways!
I AGREE WITH THE OTHER REVIEWER. LESSEN THE BR. SUGAR. IT HAS MORE OF A STRUDEL TOPPING THAN A CARMELLY ONE. IT WAS GOOD BUT TOO MUCH SUGAR FOR THE AMOUNT OF BUTTER. THERE WAS A CRYSTALLY (SUGARY)CONSISTENCY TO THE TOPPING. VERY TASTY, BUT IF YOU ARE LOOKING FOR A "CARAMEL" TOPPING DON'T MAKE THIS ONE. SOMEONE SUGGESTED POURING THE BUTTER OVER IT IN THE MORNING, SO THE SUGAR DOESN'T SIT IN IT ALL NIGHT. DOES ANYONE AGREE WITH ME?
This is a family tradition at our house. I make this on Christmas Eve and keep in the fridge overnight (to prevent over-rising). Christmas morning I let it set at room temperature for 45 minutes, or until double. I use Rhodes Frozen Roll dough 24 and cut them in half. Roll them in the dry cook and serve pudding.(sprinkle remaining dry pudding over the top of rolls). I melt 1/2 C. butter and 1/2 C brown sugar in the microwave to make a syrup and pour that over the top. This recipe is fabulous, thank you for sharing!
Yummy! These were great. Everyone loved them. Also, I added pecans and made frosting to go over them (2 cups powdered sugar, 3 tbsp. melted butter, 1/2 tsp. vanilla & 3 tbsp. milk) and they were definitely a hit. Will make again!
For everyone that's confused about "sprinkle the pudding mix", think about it. It's pretty clear on what you need to do...sprinkle...the...pudding...mix. Not make the pudding. Why would anyone sprinkle a made pudding...that doesn't even make sense.
I have been making monkey bread for years but this one is the best because of ease of making and the addition of the vanilla pudding mix! Rhodes frozen dinner rolls were fantastic in my recipe - a welcome break from canned biscuit dough. I used the quick thaw method & proofed the entire bundt after layering in the oven. (To do this, preheat to 200 degrees, microwave dough balls for 30 seconds each side; layer recipe as directed; put dough in and turn the oven OFF; wait a couple of hours; bake as directed.) I love the sprinkling & layering - so easy! Who knew??? I did use more butter. This one will be a staple at our house!
I made this Christmas morning - hoping it would turn out because I hadn't tried it before. It was perfect! I had to use an 8x8 pan because I didn't have a bundt pan but it worked great, thanks for the recipe!
first of all, let's give credit to the Best of Bridge cookbooks that this recipe came out of. Secondly, I have prepared this recipe no less than 100 times, and except for the time I apparently had a little too much egg nog on Xmas eve and forgot the melted butter....it never fails!! I usually add pecans. This has been used for over 25 years in our house for Xmas, birthday sleepovers, family brunch. I would NEVER make it for just my husband and myself now! I'd eat the whole thing!
