Strawberries + Pull Apart Bread = Delicious


This was a pull apart bread recipe that I found recently that was just too intriguing. We just had to try it. This was fantastic and it got gobbled up quickly.

Vanilla Strawberry Monkey Bread


18 Rhodes white dinner rolls, thawed, but still cold
1 small box vanilla pudding
1/2 cup white chocolate chips
1/2 to 3/4 pound strawberries, rinsed, hulled, and sliced
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup butter


Prepare a bundt pan with baking spray. Place vanilla pudding in a small bowl. Cut rolls into fourths and coat them in the vanilla pudding. Stagger coated rolls inside the bundt pan. Alternately, add slices of strawberries and white chocolate chips. Once all the rolls, strawberries, and chocolate chips have been staggered in the bundt pan, sprinkle any remaining pudding on top of the monkey bread.

Heat the sugar and butter in the microwave for 1 1/2 to 2 minutes, or until sugar dissolves and mixture is syrupy. Pour around the edges and on top of the monkey bread. Spray a piece of plastic wrap with baking spray and cover the pan.

Set in a warm place and wait until the rolls double in size and almost reach the top of the pan.

Bake at 350 degrees F. for 25-35 minutes until browned and the bread is done where the pieces touch each other.

IMPORTANT: Place a baking sheet on the shelf underneath the bundt pan to catch any potential spills. Cover the bread with foil the last 10 minutes, if it is starting to get too brown. Immediately after baking, invert onto plate. Serve warm. Refrigerate leftovers.

  1. Hey! You remade it because mine looked so ugly. :) This was a huge hit until everyone found out it wasn't desert and that I still had 3 desserts to eat. :) Niel loved it for breakfast the next day.

  2. I didn't remake it! This is the bread that you made that Sunday! It wasn't ugly! I just had to add a little natural light so its true beauty could shine through. :)
