Sticky Buns

My family really loves to eat monkey bread. My friend Janet told me about the recipe below that is almost similar to monkey bread; so I had to make it.

I only used 1/2 cup brown sugar in this recipe and it was still really sweet. The buns were good and the kids loved them. Omid and I prefer the monkey bread (with it's bite-sized pieces) and we just thought it tasted better.

I was also worried about food poisoning (letting the rolls sit out for several hours)...but so far we are okay (we've also eaten several things off the peanut butter recall list- before we knew they were recalled). We must have stomachs of steel.


Sticky Buns

18 frozen Rhodes dinner rolls (FROZEN - DO NOT THAW)
1 3 oz package of vanilla cook & serve pudding (not instant)
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup sugar
4 t. cinnamon
1 cube butter
1/2 cup chopped pecans (optional)
1/2 cup raisins (optional)

The night before making these buns, grease a bundt pan. Place frozen rolls in pan. Sprinkle on pudding, then brown sugar. Combine sugar and cinnamon and sprinkle. Melt butter and pour over rolls. Put in a cold oven overnight. In the morning, remove rolls and preheat oven to 350*. Bake rolls for 30 minues. Cool 10 minutes in pan before inverting on a plate.
