MINI MONKEY BREAD

Yesterday . . . I made Cinnamon & Sugar Monkey Bread.

They are really yummy.  Need I say more . . .

 

I know you want to make these!

To get started, you will need some thawed Rhodes Dinner Rolls.

You can find these in the freezer section of the grocery store.

Cut each ball into 3 pieces.

Now six pieces

Roll the pieces of dough in the melted butter, corn syrup mixture.

*I also add 1 teaspoon of Vanilla Extract to the melted butter.  It’s tastes good.

Make sure that you grease your tins very well!

If you want to, add a few raisins.

I also made some into Orange Rolls

Simply put grated Orange rind into melted butter, roll into Cinnamon and white Sugar.

just like this . . .

I think I let mine rise just a bit too much.

Look out!

Don’t rise more than double.

I repeat:  Don’t let them rise more than double!

You can make the glaze while they rise up beautifully.

Ready for a 350 degree oven.  I placed mine in the center of the oven.

My rolls needed to bake about 21 minutes.

One they are done, I placed them on the lower rack for another 2 to 3 minutes.

Make sure that the bottom is done and not doughy!

When the rolls are done, Glaze them.  I put my glaze into a squeeze – a- ble bottle.  So simple.

Oh just try and resist one of these babies!

Eat one hot from the oven . . . dripping with warm vanilla glaze!

Look at the bottom . . . you know you want to Get Off Your Butt and make these right now.

ORANGE -a-licious!

How fun is this . . . pull them apart.  Now you have six ……well five now!

Simple and delicious!

MINI MONKEY BREAD
 
Oh so delicious!
Ingredients
  • 12 Rhodes Dinner rolls thawed, but still cold
  • 1 stick of butter, melted
  • 2 tablespoons corn syrup
  • 1¼ cups brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • Icing: I doubled this.
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 tablespoon butter, melted
  • 1-2 tablespoons milk
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla
Instructions
  1. Cut each dinner roll into 6 equal pieces. In a bowl, combine butter and corn syrup and stir until well mixed. In another bowl, combine sugar and cinnamon and mix well. Dip each roll piece in the butter mixture and then in the sugar mixture. Place 6 pieces in each well sprayed cup of a 12 cup muffin tin. Cover with sprayed plastic wrap and let double in size. (Watch them so they don't rise too much!) Remove wrap and bake at 350°F 15-20 minutes. Combine icing ingredients and mix well. Drizzle over monkey breads if desired.
  2. Cool at least 5 to 10 minutes before removing from pan, or they fall apart.

    Thank you so much for posting such amazing recipes. I am a friend of Chantri’s and I have tried making lots of your recipes. I have a question about these rolls, I tried making them and they did not rise at all. I am wondering after you put the sugar and cinnamon on how long it took for them to puff up and rise?. Maybe my rhodes rolls were just too old or somthing. I am going to try again. The pictures you put on look SO good.ReplyCancel

      Hi meg,
      Your rolls must have been Old. Sometimes when I’ve used Rhodes rolls that were not fresh,
      they have done the same thing. You can sit them by a warm window, or for faster results:
      Heat your oven to 175 degrees, then turn the oven off.
      Lay a clean towel on the middle rack in the oven, and then set your Cupcake tray on top of that towel.
      Leave the oven door a jar, and let them rise. It doesn’t take long….20 minutes or so.
      Good luck trying this again….they are really delicious.
      Thanks for commenting and visiting.

  • Mrs. Emme - October 1, 2010 - 4:54 pm

    What could you use instead of these Rhodes dinner rolls, I have never heard of them> is it like a bread dough? I could make it from scratch maybe? or is it a different kind of pastry like a doughnit? Thank-you for your time. I really want to make these!ReplyCancel

    Thank goodness for StumbleUpon! So glad I found this blog — everything looks so delicious. I’ve been salivating since picture one!ReplyCancel

  • Howard - November 13, 2010 - 2:39 pm

    Thanks for the inspiration. These were the hit of the party last night. Gone in 10 minutes. I needed ten dozen!!ReplyCancel

  • Lynne - November 13, 2010 - 5:29 pm

    Just StumbleUpon-ed this site. These look delicious, easy (and most of all – impressive!!) – going to try them for Thanksgiving. 😀 Great idea!!

    For those who asked about Rhodes rolls – I did a google search (simply “Rhodes rolls”), since I never heard of them, either. Apparently they are available in my area (who knew!?). They seem to be a freezer-based dough.

    Monkey bread is made with white dough, so any white bread recipe would also work. I make bread a lot (started yrs ago to economize), so I’ll use a standard recipe.

    You could also try pizza dough sold in the grocery stores – but bread really isn’t difficult to make. Might even try the no-knead recipe circulating around the net, too.ReplyCancel

  • melanie - November 13, 2010 - 7:16 pm

    OMG. i just went to the store to buy all the ingeredents and made these. i made both orange and cinnamon but i added pecans to mine… OMG OMG sooooooo good. thanks for this recipe..<3ReplyCancel

  • melanie - November 13, 2010 - 7:17 pm

    i also used pizza dough also.. work just as good and alittle cheaper than the rolls..ReplyCancel

  • David - November 14, 2010 - 10:50 am

    To answer the question of Mrs. Emme, of course you could use bread dough from scratch – that would only make it better!ReplyCancel
