Christmas Breakfast Tradition: Monkey Bread

I love that our little family now has a few traditions throughout the year and this is one of them!  Monkey Bread.  I only make it one time a year; on Christmas morning and this year I am especially excited for it (probably bc I’m pregnant and have been craaaaving it since December 1st!)

Monkey Bread is prepared on Christmas Eve and left sitting out on the counter until morning.  Then, all you have to do when you wake is pop it in the oven, set a timer, and voila!  20 minutes later, breakfast is served!  My friend T shared this recipe with me and since then, I’ve shared it with many people I know too!  I’ll be thinking of each and every one of my mama-friends on Christmas Eve while preparing this breakfast!  And its fun to know we’re all in the kitchen at the same time too.  I smile as I put all of the little frozen dinner rolls in my bundt pan.  I know I’m not alone and I love it… really, I do!

Join me (and all the other mamas) in the kitchen this Christmas Eve!  Run to the store and get these ingredients for this easy to make Christmas Morning Breakfast!  You’ll be so happy to wake up to this on Christmas Morning…



  • 18-20 Rhodes Frozen Dinner Rolls
  • 1 cup Brown Sugar
  • 1 stick of melted butter
  • Cinnamon (to your liking… we like a lot!)
  • 1/3 (about) packet of Jello Vanilla Pudding (not instant)


  1. Grease a bundt pan & sprinkle a little cinnamon into the pan.
  2. Place Rolls down (try your best to do this evenly or you will have a lopsided product).
  3. Sprinkle more cinnamon on top, then brown sugar, then dry pudding mix.
  4. Drizzle melted butter on top.
  5. Dampen a kitchen towel and ring out with warm water.  Lay over the pan and leave it out overnight for it to rise.
  6. CHRISTMAS MORNING – Preheat Oven to 350 degrees
  7. Bake 20 minutes
  8. Let it rest for a few minutes.  This is what it will look like:

Then, flip it over and let the goodness run down the sides.

Pull apart, close your eyes, take a bite… It’s heavenly.

Merry Christmas Mamas!  Now you don’t have to spend Christmas Morning in the kitchen!

Ask any pregnant woman and she will tell you that now she’s expecting what once smelled delicious  - like roasting coffee beans for example, has suddenly become the one smell that induces an overwhelming feeling of nausea. For some women the pregnant nose goes into smell overdrive…

Black Friday – it’s Not Just About Fashion

Fashion, eh? It comes and goes, then comes back around again, at once fleeting and eternal. A style is in one month and then is never heard of again – until it is heard of again, of course.

The quest for fashionable clothes never ends; it’s just that what is in vogue is always changing.…
