i got this recipie from "the dinner diva". one word: AMAZING!!!

Blue Ribbon Recipe

This recipe is very similar to monkey bread. It was very easy to make - I love preparing something the night before and just having to pop it in the oven. (It looked like I had worked really hard while my family was still sleeping lol.)

Next time I may add a little more butter to the mix. As it was, I put a little butter on each piece when I served it. YUM!

NOTE: Be sure to oil your pan well to prevent your buns from sticking. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen

How to Make Christmas Eve Shortcut Cinnamon Buns

Step-by-Step

  1. Lightly grease a 10-inch bundt cake pan. Place frozen rolls into the pan and sprinkle with brown sugar, the pudding mix and cinnamon. Pour melted butter over the top. If you don't have a bundt pan, you can use a muffin tin, but they turn out better in a bundt pan.
  2. Cover with a clean, damp cloth and leave overnight at room temperature to rise.
  3. In the morning, preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Bake rolls for 25 minutes, until golden brown. Turn rolls out onto a serving plate and dig in!
