    “I have made this several times and it’s dead easy. If you have overnight guests, what could be easier for breakfast? I’ve made it on special occasions, too, such as Easter morning and Christmas morning, etc. This recipe comes from the Best of Bridge series.”

  • “So EASY!Big hit with the kids!I’m sure they ate more then their fair share!I have found this recipe in several different sites with the only difference being the amount of cinnamon used.I see amounts ranging from 2 teaspoons to 2 tablespoons (unless it’s a typo!)I used a little over one tablespoon judging by just what looked like “enough”.It was very good that way!Only problem I found was “cutting” it into slices so we just pulled it apart and ate it!Very Yummy!A great thing to do on the Eve of something like Christmas when you don’t want to get up and fix breakfast the next morning.Good for making while on a vacation with a kitchen as not much is needed for a great home cooked breakfast treat!”

  • “I love that these can be put together at night and just popped in the oven in the morning. I made these with frozen egg twist rolls (Kineret Chall-ettes) which made these even richer.However, they must be larger than the frozen rolls referred to in the original recipe.I put 16 rolls in a bundt pan, and they rose considerably higher than the pan.They were still delicious, but not so pretty.Next time, I’ll make them with just 8 rolls and they should be gorgeous as well as tasty.”

  • “Thank you for such an easy delicious breakfast for company.Everyone thinks I spend a lot of time preparing this!I make this everytime we have overnight guests.My four year old loves to wake up and smell them baking.I use the full amount of cinnamon and occasionally add some pecans or walnuts.One nice thing about this recipe is that it is easy to keep all the ingredients on hand.”

  • “I LOVE waking up and just popping this in the oven!And it tastes great, too. (can’t go wrong with cinnamon)Thankyou for our new holiday breakfast.”

  • “VERY GOOD! We really enjoyed it.Thanks”

  • “Great recipe!I’m not reall gung-ho about cinnamon, so I just used 1/2 tbsp and they were great!Also used pecans instead of raisins.However, after only 20 minutes of cooking, mine were already burning on top.Fortunately, I like mine a little well done.”

  • “Yum!I love make ahead recipes – followed this one exactly with great results.Easy, and so delicious hot out of the oven.I left the leftovers out after breakfast and everyone broke off a piece every time they walked by the kitchen counter!”

  • “These were great.I added more brown sugar, cinnamon and pudding.I also used walnuts instead of raisins.I will be making these often.I would also suggest placing the bundt pan on a pizza pan or aluminum foil to catch any overflow.”

  • “This was the most simple, delicious recipe I think i’ve ever found. I use to make homemade cinnamon rolls and my family would beg for them, I cooked this recipe when they were all over and the taste was so much the same i’ll never go to all the trouble of making the other recipe again! It’s land of nod for me from now on!! Thank you for your recipe”

  • “Awesome Recipe! My friend gave this recipe to me as well and it is the easiest thing to make! I make my homemade buns recipe#58660 and when I reach the step of forming them into buns, I roll these into golf ball size rolls and freeze them in a single layer on a cookie sheet. When they are fully frozen I place them into a container and I’m all set to whip up a fancy morning breakfast! I really enjoyed the smell of these as they baked in the oven and my family, including our exchange student who doesn’t like a lot of bread, gobbled up this when I made it for breakfst last week. My husband even put in a request to have it every Sunday! Thanks for posting!”

  • “Killian, I should have mentioned in the recipe that you just pull it apart.Glad you enjoyed it so much.”

  • “LOVE these!I had lost the recipe and haven’t made them for years and missed them on Christmas mornings!So easy and so good.I omit the raisins just for personal preference.I am so thrilled to have it back in my life:)”

  • “This is very good but I thought Pull Apart Monkey Bread Recipe #28980 is better.”

  • “I had a craving for cinnamon rolls, but did not want to make the effort to roll out dough.These satisfied my craving and they were wonderful.I’ve already recommended them to many people.”

  • “Yummy!I have always wanted to make cinnamon buns and yesterday I finally did it!Had a group of gals over and everybody raved about them.Just wish I had sprayed the pan more, but they were wonderful.”

  • “I have made this several times when I have had overnight guests. It is so easy and tastes so good! I have modified the recipe using just 12 wholewheat frozen dough rolls, 1 tbsp cinnamon, half a stick of butter and 1/2 cup of walnuts or pecans instead of raisins. The rest is the same. I make it in a bundt pan and bake it for 20 mins.”

  • “This is amazing!We had 6 overnight guests and I was fretting over what to make for breakfast… stumbled across this recipe and figured it was worth a shot. It was cheap, easy and something I wouldn’t have to get up too early to do!I used all 24 dinner rolls (Bridgefort is the only brand I could find), the whole box of instant pudding mix, 1 TB of cinnamon and then omitted the raisins (there were 4 kids)… Let it rise overnight and panicked in the morning when the rolls were coming over the top of the bundt pan!I pushed them back in and baked as stated…25 min later, a BEAUTIFUL breakfast was ready for my still sleepy guests…I served this with fresh bananas and apples… and EVERYONE cleaned their plates!My DH even remarked that this rivaled his mothers family famous cinnamon rolls that she is requested tomake for every holiday and family function!I LOVE this recipe and will be using it often!Thank you so much!!”

  • “We loved this recipe. I have made it on the past two Christmas Eve’s — sooo easy and so good on Christmas morning when we are opening our gifts with our family. Thank you very much for posting it. I made pudding with the pudding mix I had left over from making this, I just used a little less milk than the recipe on the box of pudding called for.”

  • “Very good and easiest cinn. bun recipe I ever made!If you need them that day, just heat oven to 220 degrees for 10 mins, turn oven off and let the rolls rise in that warmed oven..they rise in about an hour. Then bake as directed.Thanks for easy recipe!”

  • “I’ve made this several times and it’s always wonderful.”
