Paula Deen's Ultimatey easy Monkey Bread

Talk about easy and delicious. This Paula Deen recipe is a major winner! Even though Paula calls it her Ultimate Coffee Cake, it's really just monkey bread.If you're looking for a super easy, super delicious, and beautiful Christmas Breakfast look no further. Butter (of course, it's Paula) and butterscotch pudding mixed with pecans create a the yummiest, gooiest caramel topping over pre-made rolls.

Paula Deen's Ultimate Coffee Cake

Paula Deen

16 to 18 unbaked frozen dinner rolls
1 (3-ounce) package regular butterscotch pudding mix, not instant
1/2 cup brown sugar , packed
1/2 cup pecans, chopped
1 stick (1/2 cup) butter, melted

The night before place frozen rolls in well greased Bundt pan. Sprinkle dry pudding mix over rolls. Sprinkle brown sugar over pudding mix. Sprinkle chopped pecans over brown sugar. Pour melted butter over all. To prevent the dough from forming a hard crust while its rising overnight, cover with a damp towel or tightly wrap with plastic wrap. Let rise overnight at room temperature, about 8 to 10 hours.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Bake in oven for 30 minutes. Remove from the oven and allow to cool for 5 minutes. Turn pan over onto a serving platter to remove. Serve by pulling apart chunks with forks.

Pros- I think I already listed most of them but here they are again

1- This comes together in about 15 minutes tops!

2- minimal ingredients

3- can be made the night before

4- just bake the day of, no prep at all

5- beautiful and delicious

Cons- Are there any? The only one I can think of is you really don't want to let this rise more than 10 hours. Otherwise, it's going to rise right out of the pan. If you're planning on eating a later breakfast, you'll either have to bake early and reheat, or put together pretty late the night before.

why can't one use instant pudding for this recipe

My Sister's Kitchen said...

Although this is just a guess, I think that with the melted butter, the instant pudding could become thick and pudding-like. With pudding that needs to be cooked, the cooking process is what helps it become thick. With instant, it has agents in the pudding that help it thicken by just adding liquid.
