Prep Time 2 hours 30 minutes
Cook Time 30 minutes
Course Breakfast
Servings 10


  • 1 bag of frozen raw dinner rolls approximately 22-26 rolls
  • 2 tablespoons of softened salted butter
  • 2 cups of chopped pecans or walnuts
  • 1 ¾ sticks of melted salted butter 14 tablespoons
  • 1 cup of light brown sugar
  • 1 ½ teaspoons of cinnamon
  • 1 box 3.5 oz of Cook & Serve Butterscotch pudding (Not Instant!)


  • Take the frozen dough balls out and set them aside. Use the softened butter to grease the inside of a bundt pan.
  • In a medium-sized bowl, mix the melted butter, brown sugar, and cinnamon. Sprinkle pecans over the bottom of the pan and drizzle about ⅓ of the butter mixture. Add the frozen rolls, filling the pan about ⅔ full. Aim for 24-26 rolls, giving them space to rise.
  • Sprinkle dry pudding mix and the remaining butter mixture over and between the rolls. Loosely cover with Saran wrap sprayed with nonstick cooking spray. Let it rise for 3 hours or overnight (if preparing ahead, let it rise in a cold oven).
  • After rising, gently push down the rolls in the pan. Preheat the oven to 325°F. Bake for 30-35 minutes until the dough turns golden brown. Allow it to sit for 5 minutes, then invert onto a dish and cut slices to serve. Enjoy the delightful flavors of this easy-to-make Monkey Bread!
