Course Breakfast
Servings 20 buns


  • 20 unbaked frozen dinner rolls Bridgeport is a brand I have used
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup instant vanilla pudding mix
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1/3 cup butter melted


  • Lightly grease a 10 inch bundt cake pan. Place frozen rolls into the pan and sprinkle with brown sugar, the pudding mix, and cinnamon. Pour melted butter over the top. If you don’t have a bundt pan, you can use a muffin tin, but they turn out better in a bundt pan.
  • Cover with a clean, damp cloth and leave overnight at room temperature to rise.
  • In the morning, preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Bake rolls for 25 minutes, until golden brown. Turn rolls out onto a serving plate and dig in!
