I am always looking for ideas for a weekend breakfast that doesn’t take forever to prepare…enter these delicious Caramel Rolls! They are super easy to prepare and my favorite part about them (besides the fact that they are so yummy!), is that you make them the night before. All you have to do in the morning, is pop them into the oven and ta-da! I’ve made these for several family gatherings and they are always a big hit! If there does happen to be any leftovers, they do reheat well.
2 loaves frozen bread dough, thawed
1/2 cup butter
1 cup brown sugar
2 tablespoons milk
1 teaspoon cinnamon
2 small packages vanilla pudding, not instant
Raisins, walnuts, pecans (optional)
Tear one loaf of bread into small chunks and put in bottom of greased 9”x13” pan (or bundt pan).
Bring remaining ingredients to boil, and pour over first loaf in pan at onset of boiling stage. You do not want this too hot.
Top with raisins or nuts, if desired. (Note: Our family prefers not to use raisins or nuts, so these pictures will not show those optional ingredients). Tear up second loaf into small chunks and put into pan. Cover loosely with greased plastic wrap.
Let raise overnight (look at how much these rise overnight!) and bake at 350° for 25 to 30 minutes.
Let stand for 5 to 10 minutes and turn out onto cookie sheet.
