  • 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.

    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.
