Effortless Sweet Bread (So easy your husband can bake while you sleep)!

Some mornings you just want to sleep a little longer.  The kids are up running around and your husband is scratching his head about breakfast.  A few more minutes of sleep in a warm bed is all you need to ease yourself into the day.  Well…Here is an extremely simple yet delicious breakfast recipe that your husband, partner, or boyfriend can do for the group to give you a morning break.  We will bake sticky, pull apart bread with 6 ingredients. The bread costs about $4 to make and will feed 6-8 adults.  Assemble the bread the night before in about 10 minutes and the next morning it will bake for 30 minutes.  Our model husband Seth Stallings is a former Navy Lieutenant that is a culinary novice.  Seth is learning his way around the kitchen and his first attempt turned out quite well!  Thanks Seth!
First assemble your six ingredients.  One stick of butter, one package of butterscotch pudding mix, one cup of chopped (or not) nuts – I chose pecans, one bag of Parkerhouse rolls, one cup of brown sugar, and a couple of tablespoons of cinnamon.  Mix the sugar and cinnamon together.  You will need a bundt style pan.
Use a pinch of the stick of butter to grease the bundt pan.  The better you grease the cracks and crevices, the less the bread will stick.


Arrange the frozen dough in a layer along the bottom of the pan.


Sprinkle nuts on top of first layer of dough.


Using half of the brown sugar and cinnamon mixture, sprinkle it on top of the nuts.


Sprinkle one half of the butterscotch pudding mix on top of the sugar.


Repeat the steps again.  Arrange another bread layer using the remainder of the rolls.


Use the remainder of the brown sugar and cinnamon mixture and sprinkle on top of the rolls.


Use the remainder of the pudding mix and sprinkle on top of the sugar.
Melt the stick of butter in the microwave.


Pour the melted butter on top of the bread in the pan.
Place the pan into a cool oven to rise overnight.  Do not turn the oven on.
Allow to rise 8-10 hours or overnight.  In the morning the bread will look like this.


Remove the pan from the oven and preheat it to 350 degrees.


Bake for 25-30 minutes depending on your oven or until the bread starts to brown on top.


Remove from oven and turn the pan upside down on a flat surface or serving tray.


The bread is ready to pull apart and eat – and your house smells like cinnamon!  Kids love the sweet and fun pull-apart bread and you will love the ease of preparation and clean up. Enjoy!
