Monkey Bread using Frozen Bread Dough - easy and yummy!

Updated on January 13, 2013

monkey bread

An easy breakfast using frozen bread dough

Saturday morning I made monkey bread. It was really easy to do since I used a loaf of frozen bread for the dough, I just had to take the bread out Friday night so that it would thaw.

On Saturday morning I used the kitchen scissors to cut the thawed loaf apart into approximately 24, one inch balls. I used a bundt pan to cook the monkey bread in and used non-stick spray on the pan first. I then put brown sugar in the bottom of the pan with two Tbsp of butter (in thin slabs) on top of it. I melted the rest of the stick of butter - six Tbsp - and dipped all the dough balls into it individually. Then I rolled them into the mixture of cinnamon sugar. Then I just layered them into the pan on top of each other, and poured what was left of the melted butter over the top. I sprinkled brown sugar between layers and on top of it all and popped them in the oven for 20 minutes.

As you can see from the photos, my husband ate almost half the pan before I could get it out onto a plate. He did not realize I had put butter and brown sugar in the bottom, which makes a great caramel sauce for dipping! The pictures definitely represent how well my family likes this version of monkey bread!


1 Frozen loaf of bread (thaw overnight)

1 stick of butter, I only use real butter (1/2 cup)

1/4 cup brown sugar

1 cup cinnamon sugar mixture to roll each dough ball into (use about a tsp of cinnamon mixed with a cup of white sugar)


It cannot get any easier: cook the monkey bread 20 minutes at 350 degrees, let cool and enjoy!

    Glad to hear you tried it! We do love this breakfast very much, and maybe I'll try to make it a little healthier now that I am trying to cut sugar down in my diet - and my family's diet!

    It was great. Next time I will use half the butter and sugar, I think it be just as good.
