Nothing beats the aroma of freshly baked coffee cake first thing in the morning, especially when it’s gooey monkey bread. Not only does it taste absolutely heavenly, it looks awesome for company and can be made ahead of time.
Frozen yeast rolls and butterscotch pudding mix smothered in a buttery cinnamon sugar mixture come to life as they proof overnight in a greased Bundt pan. Just pop it in the oven the next morning and serve warm.
