Ingredients

24 Rhodes Dinner Rolls, thawed but still cold
1 cup sliced almonds, divided
8 ounces cream cheese
1/4 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
1/2 cup butter or margarine, melted
1 cup brown sugar

Glaze:
1 tablespoon butter, melted
1 cup powdered sugar
2 tablespoons water
1/2 teaspoon almond extract

Instructions

Sprinkle 1/4 cup almonds in a sprayed bundt pan. Cut cream cheese into 24 equal cubes.

In a small bowl mix sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg. Roll cream cheese cubes in sugar mixture and coat completely.

Wrap a flattened roll around each cube and completely enclose. Dip each roll in sugar mixture until coated. Place 12 rolls in bundt pan and sprinkle with half of the remaining almonds.

Stir together butter and brown sugar in a small, microwave-safe bowl. Microwave 30 seconds. Stir well and pour half over the 12 rolls. Place remaining 12 rolls in the bundt pan and sprinkle with remaining nuts and any remaining sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg mixture. Top with remaining butter, brown sugar mixture.

Cover with plastic wrap and let rise until almost to the top of the pan.

Remove wrap and bake at 350°F 45 minutes. Cover with foil last 15 minutes of baking. Invert immediately onto serving platter (it is natural for the bundt to settle). Mix glaze ingredients together and drizzle over bundt while still warm.

      Look for the recipe “Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Bundt” on our website. It uses canned pumpkin and is make in a bundt pan, very similar to monkey bread. Enjoy!

    MY MOM, AND BOTH GRANDMOTHERS, ALL AUNTIES ALWAYS MADE HOMEMADE BREAD. YOUR DOUGH IS AS GOOD AS WHAT I REMEMBER!!!!! MY SISTER RECOMMEND I TRY YOUR PRODUCT, AND AM SO GLAD I DID. I CAN’T SEEM TO FIND ANY STORE BOUGHT BREAD THAT I LIKE. AM MAKING MY SECOND LOAD THIS EVENING, AND MY MOUTH IS WATERING WAITING FOR IT TO COME OUT OF THE OVEN. AM LOOKING AT SOME OF THE AMAZING RECIPES ON YOUR WEBSITE – WILL DEFINITELY HAVE TO TRY A FEW. A QUESTION: WHAT HAPPENS IF YOU LET THE DOUGH RISE TOO HIGH? WILL IT BE AS GOOD?

      Thank you for sharing your wonderful memories of Rhodes Bread! It’s true that some of our most precious memories are directly connected to food! To answer your question, If you happen to let the dough raise too high, the dough will just continue to rise and fill with air. Sometimes the bread will have air bubbles on the inside or it will fall. If this happens with the bread you can just reform the dough and let it rise again. But it will raise faster the second time so you will have to watch it and bake it when it is ready. If you are baking our rolls, you will want to bake them when the rolls have doubled in size.
