    I want to make some monkey bread but every recipe I find starts with refrigerated dough in the tubes. I hate that when I want to make from scratch! I need a dough that wont take a long time or a lot of work, I do have a bread machine too. Any suggestions?

    I always use the frozen white bread dough, so I guess you could just make up a plain white bread and use that. I make mine up on Christmas Eve before I go to work (3rd shift) and let it rise all night. Bake them at 7 am then run them to my elderly neighbors. Sorta a tradition. I use the frozen because I am always swamped on Christmas Eve. This year I have off so I may actually make something from scratch. Do you use the butterscotch pudding with yours?

    If you want to use homemade dough, any sweet roll dough should work, if it's the Monkey Bread with cinnamon.
    And I want to know more about using butterscotch pudding... never heard of that.

    I use 3 bowls, make your 1in balls of bread dough. 1/2 cup melted butter in one bowl, 1sm box of butterscotch pudding in one bowl (not instant), 1/2 c of brown sugar with 1/2 c nuts in 3rd bowl. Dunk the dough in butter, pudding then bs and layer in bundt pan. Use up all the dough then dump anything leftover on top (butter, bs or pudding). You can add anything you want along the way, sprinkle of cinnamon or raisons. You could also change the pudding flavor if you want. I then let it rise all night and bake at 350 for 20-25 min. Invert immediatly on a plate, it has that great sticky bun goo that will harden to your pan if left too long. I really don't have an exact recipe anymore, just throw it all together. I have used chocolate chips and also an orange glaze is really nice.

    how'd the biscuit dough work? I make monkey bread with yeast dough. I use brioche dough made in the bread machine. I'm thinking I'll do it for Christmas morning. Make the whole thing the night before and refridgerate it- then pop it in the oven in the morning. Here's a recipe for the brioche- just make the dough and then proceed with your monkey bread recipe. check it out http://www.babettesnjfeast.com/2009/07/bastille-day-brioche.html
