12 Weeks of Christmas - Sticky bread

So this isn't necessarily a treat for your holiday tray but it is one of my absolute holiday favorites. This sticky bread has been a staple as our Christmas breakfast for years and years. My MIL's friend makes this for our family to eat on Christmas morning. She brings it over Christmas Eve and then we let it sit overnight. The first one up puts it in the oven to help wake up the rest of the family. :) It's a wonderful tradition that I want to keep up whether or not we travel back to home or not. Do you have any Christmas morning traditions that you make each yr?

Sticky Bread
recipe from Joy P.

  • 2 (1 pound) loaves frozen bread dough, slightly thawed so that you can slice
  • 3/4 cup finely chopped pecans or walnuts
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tablespoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup butter or margarine, melted
  • 1 (3 5/8 oz) package butterscotch pudding and pie filling mix (NOT INSTANT)
  • 1/2 cup firmly packed brown sugar
  • Grease a 12 cup bundt pan; set aside
  • Cut each loaf into 8 slices.  
  • In small bowl, combine nuts, sugar and cinnamon.  Dip each slice of dough into melted butter, then coat with nut mixture.  Stand slices upright in prepared pan; sprinkle with any remaining nut mixture. 
  • Sprinkle with dry pudding mix.  Stir brown sugar into remaining melted butter; drizzle over rolls.
  • Cover lightly with plastic wrap; refrigerate several hours or overnight.  Rolls should rise to top of pan.
  • Remove plastic wrap; let stand at room temperature for just 10-15 minutes.  
  • Bake in a preheated 325 degree oven 35-40 minutes. 
  • Invert onto serving dish. Serve warm. Enjoy!!
Yield:  16 slices
