Who Am I?

  • My life as a wife, mother, and child of God. I can tell a good joke, but only at my own expense. I can tell ya how to parent, but only by first failing. And I can tell you how to get to Heaven, but you gotta get there on your own.

Yummy! I've only had monkey bread once, and it didn't have the butterscotch pudding it it. I bet this one is scrumptious! Thanks for sharing Amanda & Kelli :) know I love you and I love your blog and recipes...but I have a major issue with this particular one...

"Leave on counter, uncovered, overnight"

Ain't happening...I'm an insomniac enough as it is (pointedly, that's when I do most of my own's the only time of day that the house is quiet and there are no interruptions) put something like that on my counter, overnight...and I'm going to be hopping out of bed, all night long, pulling pieces off of it.

I'd be exhausted the next day. And crabby. All because that blasted monkey bread had to sit out on the counter.

Can't do it....

This sounds great, but I have a question. What exactly are Rhodes rolls? I don't think the grocery stores in Nashville, TN carry that brand. What is something comparable? Thanks!!!

Amanda Rettke

They are just a frozen dinner roll... I think any brand would work!  The rolls themselves are about 2 in. across.  Hope that helps... cause I cant wait for you to make some!!! :)


Another FAVE!!! I live cinnamon rolls or anything that's close to it! I'm going to have to make this this week.


My grandma makes monkey bread for EVERY family occasion. Love that you posted about it. what great memories


Yum! I haven't made Monkey Bread in a long, long time. Of course I don't need to either. Good gracious baby weight doesn't come off easily. ;)

We used to eat this growing up and it was always a favorite. I have not made it in a long, long time...since Logan was a newborn. Thanks for the reminder!

Yum! My mom always made this for me growing up and it's my absolute favorite!! I've always had it with chopped nuts on top, but I'm sure your version is just as ooey, gooey, and delicious!

Monkey bread is one of my favorite things in all the land. Especially when someone else makes it.

Yes, that was a hint.

Amanda! What are you doing posting on your actual due date!
go and have a baby or something!

Just kidding! So Omri won't be sharing his birthday with your little guy, huh? That makes me sad! I can't wait to meet him.

Oh, and the monkey bread looks fabulous, too!


I made this last night, though i didn't have a bunt pan so Improvised and used on 12 rolls in a 9x9 cake pan. But i didn't half the other ingredients. I think it may have been way too much pudding mix & not enough liquid (butter)? The topping came out gritty, which I wasn't huge on but my friend LOVED. The concept and taste were delicious, but that grit was a turn-off for me. I will play around with it the next time I make it to try to minimize the grit.


Monkey bread is one of my absolute favorites. LOVE it!
Can't wait to meet your little guy!


Looks like something that all of my *monkeys* would love for sure!

Hugs from Bainbridge!
