Cinnamon Monkey Bread

 In Breakfast, Cooking with KAKE, Recipes, Uncategorized

Christmas morning we like to wake up and open presents. Before the kids go downstairs to see their gifts, I turn on the oven and place a pan of monkey bread in the oven. The house starts to smell like cinnamon bread and it is the perfect start to a day of family fun.

This monkey bread can be made in the evening. The second rise happens in the refrigerator overnight. The next morning you can heat the oven and add the pan of monkey bread. It is sweet and warm, laced with cinnamon and totally addictive.

You can make it with my Food Processor Bread Dough or frozen yeast rolls.

Cinnamon Monkey Bread

2 Pounds Frozen Yeast Rolls or 1 Recipe Food Processor Bread Dough

1/2 Cup (1 stick) Unsalted Butter, Melted

4 teaspoons Cinnamon

1 Cup Sugar

Cooking Spray


Remove the yeast rolls from the freezer and let sit at room temperature for about 1-2 hours. Once they are thawed enough to cut, cut each roll in half.


Make the Food Processor Bread Dough. Once it has risen 35-45 minutes, punch down the dough to remove the big air bubbles and cut into golf ball size pieces with a kitchen scissors.


Mix the cinnamon and sugar in a small bowl. Spray a bundt pan well with cooking spray. Dip the cut rolls into the melted butter, roll in the cinnamon sugar and layer in the oiled pan. Continue dipping the rolls in butter, rolling in cinnamon sugar and placing in the pan until all the dough is used.  If there is any remaining butter, pour it over the top of the rolls.

Spray a piece of plastic wrap and place over the pan. If you are using frozen dough, let them rise for 2-3 hours in a warm place. If you are using the Food Processor Dough, let them rise 45 minutes in a warm place. OR Place in the refrigerator overnight.

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.

Place the risen monkey bread in the oven on the middle rack and bake at 350 for 35-45 minutes until deep golden brown on top. Remove from the oven and place a serving plate on top of the rolls. Using pot holders, invert the pan over the serving plate and remove the pan. Serve warm.
