How to Make Make-Ahead Monkey Bread


  1. About 8 hours before serving, or night before, combine first two ingredients in a bowl.
  2. Remove 24 frozen dough balls from freezer and wet them slightly before adding to sugar/cinnamon mixture.
  3. Stir to coat and dump into a bundt pan sprayed with cooking spray.
  4. Melt butter and add remaining ingredients in a small bowl and pour over dough.
  5. Cover with a towel and let rise 8 hours or overnight.
  6. Bake 350 for about 30 minutes.
  7. Place large plate on top and invert bread onto plate.
  8. Let cool only long enough that you don't get burned - this is best when hot.
  9. For dough balls: defrost one store-bought frozen bread dough loaf just until it can be cut through it with a knife (about 1 1/2 hours), then divide into 24 equal pieces and then freeze and store in ziploc bag until needed.
