YUMMMM!! I found the recipe on Pinterest and just HAD to have it!
Do you already know about Monkey Bread? That is a wonderful recipe that my mother has been making for years…..yummy bisquits cut into fourths and layered into a Bundt pan (because presentation is half…) and then drizzled with brown sugar, butter and cinnamon? And I thought that was good…..
But I stumbled upon a similiar recipe that uses lemons and decided to give it a try. I found the recipe on sixsistersstuff.com and got busy! I only tweaked it a little for my taste…and when Jimmy tasted it, he said something in spanish which I will not repeat for two reasons: first, I don’t know what he said and second, it probably should not be repeated. Bottom line? He LOVED it!
12 Rhodes™ Dinner Rolls, thawed but still cold (in the freezer section of grocery store)
zest from 2 whole lemons
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 cup butter, melted
1 cup powdered sugar
1 tablespoon butter, melted
4 tablespoons fresh lemon juice (originally called for 2 Tbls., but I like it lemon-y-er……new word)
Mix lemon zest with sugar. Cut rolls in half and place in a sprayed in Bundt pan.
Drizzle 1/4 cup melted butter over rolls. Sprinkle with lemon zest/sugar mixture, reserving 1/2 of mixture to sprinkle on just before baking.
Cover with sprayed plastic wrap. Let rise until double in size. Remove wrap.
Sprinkle on remaining mixture. Bake at 350°F 20-25 minutes.
Remove immediately from pan and invert onto plate.
Combine glaze ingredients and mix well. Drizzle over pull-aparts.
Taste, swoon, taste again…..this time nod and say, “ooooh yeah….”
I’m telling you, this is divine. I’m not asking you to make it….I’m TELLING you. It’s ridiculous. Your tongue will jump up and slap you on the brain………….
