Frozen Bread Dough Sticky Buns are an easy shortcut breakfast roll recipe using butterscotch pudding. Make these sticky buns with or without nuts. This recipe is similar to what some call monkey bread which is usually baked in a Bundt pan, but this version is made in a 9×13 inch baking dish.

Frozen Bread Dough Sticky Buns

I love breakfast rolls for breakfast, in particular sticky pecan rolls. My Mom makes the best butterscotch pecan rolls from scratch using my Grandma’s recipe. It is a labor of love, usually starting in the morning make a yeast bread dough and not having a finished product until late in the day.

When I found this Pecan Sticky Bun recipe using frozen bread dough in an old Teachers’ Cook Book, I knew I had to give it a go.

I am amazed at how easy it is to make sticky pecan buns when you use a shortcut recipe like frozen bread dough or frozen roll dough.

The result is sticky and sweet perfection.

Breakfast Rolls with Butterscotch Pudding

While frozen bread dough is the first shortcut ingredient in ooey gooey breakfast rolls, there’s also a second shortcut ingredient.

Grab a box of butterscotch pudding or vanilla pudding (the cook variety, NOT the instant type) at the grocery store.  There’s a ton of flavor in a small box of pudding.

Using butterscotch pudding mix in these breakfast rolls results in a caramel flavor, while the brown sugar and butter gives a ooey gooey texture, kinda like monkey bread.

Butterscotch pudding rolls 9×13

Another special thing about this particular butterscotch pudding rolls is that they are baked in a 9×13 inch pan instead of a Bundt pan like many other similar recipes.

You can flip out the entire pan of frozen bread dough sticky buns right as they come out of the oven or pull out the butterscotch pudding sticky buns one at a time as you eat them.
