Cinnamon Monkey Bread Loaf

Good morning! How was your weekend? Mine was great, Saturday the weather was a little crazy but Sunday was sunny so all in all not too bad. I managed to read a little, get my stuff ready for my taxes ( I  am a procrastinator in the worst way when it comes to taxes) and bake a few things, even though I am supposed to be off sugar.

No matter, I only ate one tiny piece of bread so I don't think it should matter that much.

This recipe is so easy because it uses Rhodes dinner rolls. I am sure that there are those true bakers that are shaking their heads but as I am not one I don't care, this is a great shortcut to something that tastes delicious. 

Cinnamon Monkey Bread Loaf(s)

1 Bag of Rhodes dinner rolls


3 tablespoons softened butter
1/3 cup brown sugar
3 teaspoons cinnamon
2 tablespoons flour
1/4 teaspoon salt

Thaw rolls in the refrigerator the night before you want to make the bread. Once thawed make filling. 

Mix all filling ingredients in a bowl and set aside. 

Take two loaf pans, spray with spray and line with parchment, then spray again, set aside. 

Take each roll and roll out or just press down on a silpat to make it flat, spread with a little of the filling. Then take two corners and pinch and then take the other corners and pinch them as well, to make a ball, set aside. Do this to all the rolls, then take a scissors and cut into 4 pieces, place the pieces into the pan randomly. Once all of the pieces are in the pans. Let rise for 1 hour. 

Preheat oven to 350. Then bake at 350 for 20-30 minutes or until golden brown. 

Let cool and frost if you like or just pull apart and enjoy. 

See, easy, peasy and delicious! I hope you enjoy it!

I hope that you have a great day!
