Cinnamon Bun!

Mr. Homegrown has a sweet tooth.  That is probably why I married him.  It is hard to hide a sweet tooth forever.  So I married someone who has one too!  That was genius.

Cinnamon Buns or Monkey Bread is probably his favorite breakfast in the world.  This recipe for Cinnamon Buns is his favorite.  It is also probably the easiest breakfast to make.  What a happy marriage. 

All the Beanes love this cinnamon bun.  It is so gooey and yummy!  There is buttery cinnamon love everywhere.   I love that you assemble it the night before and just pop it in the oven in the morning.  I always make it for Christmas morning when there is no time to cook with all the wrapping paper flying.

I hope you love this as much as we do.  It is a busy moms dream of a recipe and a Sweet Tooth's BFF.

20 frozen dough rolls (I use Rhodes)
1 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup vanilla instant pudding
1-2 Tbsp cinnamon
3/4 cup raisins -optional (I do not use them)
1/2 cup melted butter (dairy free margarine is what we use)

Grease a 10" bundt pan and add frozen rolls.  Sprimkle with brown sugar, pudding powder, cinnamon and raisins.  Pour melted butter over all.  Cover with a clean, damp cloth.  Leave out at room temperature.  Turn out the lights and go to bed!

When you wake up you will see this waiting for you

In the morning, preheat the oven to 350 degrees.  Bake for 25 minutes.  Let sit for 5 minutes and then turn out on a serving plate.  Your family will thank you!

Recipe was adapted from Land of Nod Cinnamon Bun.
