Bourbon Monkey Bread Recipe
Recipe type: Bread
 
Ingredients
Caramel sauce
  • 1 ½ cup sugar
  • ⅓ cup water
  • 2 Tbsp corn syrup
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 1 stick butter
  • 1 cup Heavy cream
  • 1 Tbsp bourbon or ¼ tsp rum extract
  • 1 Vanilla bean pod seeded
Bread
  • 1 bag of defrosted Rhodes rolls (I used the bag with 36 rolls and it was perfect)
  • ½ cup sugar and ½ tbsp cinnamon mixed in a large storage plastic bag
  • 2 cups chopped pecans
Instructions
  1. Mix sugar, water and syrup in a deep sauce pan and simmer for 15-20 minutes or until sauce is a deep amber color stirring occasionally to keep sides from sticking.
  2. Reduce heat to low, slowly add salt, butter, heavy cream, bourbon, and vanilla bean seeds and pod. Sauce will boil violently so be cautious not to add too much liquid too quickly.
  3. Put it together with: 1 bag of defrosted Rhodes rolls (I used the bag with 36 rolls and it was perfect), ½ cup sugar and ½ tbsp cinnamon mixed in a large storage plastic bag and 2 cups chopped pecans
  4. At this point preheat oven to 350 degrees. Shake each roll in the large plastic back with sugar and cinnamon to coat. Remove vanilla pod from caramel and pour a quarter of the sauce into your desired pan for baking (I used a bundt cake pan.) Now add pecans and layer on each of the cinnamon sugar coated rolls adding caramel wherever you see fit.
  5. Bake for 30 minutes. until golden brown or no longer doughy in the center. Allow bread to cool for 30 minutes to a hour before turning over to plate. Enjoy!
