What do you do when your freezer goes out and all your frozen bread dough starts to thaw? Well, I make monkey bread, quickly, before it all goes to waste! :) Luckily I was able to salvage most of what was in my freezer and fridge, with only a few things having to be thrown... So, while we are refrigerator shopping, you can enjoy this recipe for monkey bread! No pictures for this one... With the refrigerator not quite as cold as it needed to be, the bread dough REALLY rose this time and it didn't turn out the prettiest when I uncovered it to bake it. It tasted good, just didn't look all that wonderful!
2 loaves frozen bread dough, thawed
1/2 cup butter, melted
1 cup brown sugar
1 large instant vanilla pudding
2 tablespoons milk (add more if you need to thin it out in order to pour it)
Cut one loaf of bread dough in chunks into the bottom of a greased 9x13 pan. Mix together the rest of the ingredients. Pour over bottom layer of bread dough. Cut second loaf of bread dough over the top. Cover and refrigerate to rise over night. Bake at 350 for 25-30 minutes.
