How to Make Make-Ahead Monkey Bread


  • 1About 8 hours before serving, or night before, combine first two ingredients in a bowl.
  • 2Remove 24 frozen dough balls from freezer and wet them slightly before adding to sugar/cinnamon mixture.
  • 3Stir to coat and dump into a bundt pan sprayed with cooking spray.
  • 4Melt butter and add remaining ingredients in a small bowl and pour over dough.
  • 5Cover with a towel and let rise 8 hours or overnight.
  • 6Bake 350 for about 30 minutes.
  • 7Place large plate on top and invert bread onto plate.
  • 8Let cool only long enough that you don't get burned - this is best when hot.
  • 9For 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.
