I made this with homemade bread dough and cook and serve butterscotch pudding (I had it on hand). Really good.

I make this every year for Christmas. Probably 35 years now. Now that the kids are all grown each family gets a pan of their own. I add walnuts and/or raisins to each of the pans. If they get a little dry the second day, just zap them in the microwave. So yummy. I also add the sauce over the first loaf, add any nuts raisins and then the second loaf.

This is a recipe that has been around since frozen bread was made available. It has been a family favorite for over 30 years. The sauce coats more pieces if half of the bread pieces are put in the pan, then half the sauce, then repeat. You can also refrigerate it overnight and bake it in the morning when needed.

Good but My family prefers my recipe with using canned biscuits and putting in a bundt pan or even a square pan.

This is a great monkey bread recipe! I love how every tender piece of bread has some sticky caramel on it. There is plenty of cinnamon flavor and the vanilla pudding adds an extra layer of flavor. I will definitely be making this again!
