Lemon Poppy Seed Monkey Bread

Do you love lemon poppy seed muffins as much as I do?  Or even just a lemon loaf?  And I’m sure you must love an ooey gooey monkey bread as well, right?  Well, I went ahead and combined those two favorites into a perfect bundt pan recipe, the lemon poppy seed monkey bread!

Frozen Dinner Rolls Sugar Poppy Seeds Lemons


Following the directions on the package, defrost the frozen dinner rolls. Once the dough balls have warmed up and start to rise slightly, cut them each in half.

Step 1

Zest the 3 lemons and toss with one cup of sugar. Then mix the lemon sugar and poppy seeds together. Set aside.

Step 2

Melt the stick of butter with the juice of two lemons in a small bowl and place the bowl on the baking sheet as well.

Step 3

Roll each of the balls of dough in the butter lemon mixture, then in the lemon sugar and poppy seed mixture and place into the prepared bundt pan.

Step 4

Bake until the top is golden brown. Take it out of the oven and let it cool in the pan, then turn out onto your serving platter and enjoy.

Step 5

Be sure to really spray the bundt pan liberally with baking spray.  The sugars can caramelize on your pan in the oven and create a real mess if you don't.
