Monkey Bread

We love this monkey bread and have it every Christmas morning. We're also having it for General Conference morning. We're starting a new tradition where we go to the store and we all pick something to enjoy during Conference together. My choice was to get frozen bread loaves and make this. We'll pull out the other choices (fresh squeezed OJ, fruit snacks, & ready-made cookie dough) for the next sessions. Gotta go eat my monkey bread.

2. 1 lb loaves frozen white bread dough
1 1/4 cups sugar, divided
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup milk
1 TBSP margarine or butter
1 3/4 tsp ground cinnamon, divided
Bundt Pan (12 cup size)

1. Thaw bread dough in fridge for 12 hours.
2. Combine 1 cup sugar, brown sugar, milk, butter, and 1 1/4 tsp cinnamon in a small sauce pan. Bring to a boil; cook 1 minute. Remove sugar syrup from heat; let cool 10 minutes.
3. Combine 1/4 cup sugar and 1/2 tsp cinnamon in a shallow bowl; stir well. Cut each loaf of dough into 24 equal portions. Roll each portion in sugar mixture; layer balls of dough in a 12 cup Bundt pan.
4. Pour Half of sugar syrup over dough; cover and rise in warm place for 30-35 minutes. Bake at 350 for about us 25 minutes or until lightly browned. Immediately loosen around edges and invert onto serving plate. Remove pan and drizzle remaining syrup on top. Serve while warm and enjoy!
