  • 2 lb Bridgford’s Ready Dough® thawed, cut in 1 inch pieces
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 Tbsp cinnamon, ground
  • 6 oz butter, unsalted
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1 cup of Sunsweet Cherries
  • 8 oz cream cheese, softened
  • 8 oz butter, unsalted
  • 1 lb powdered sugar
  • 2 tsp lemon juice
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract


Preheat oven to 350°F and lightly grease a 9 inch Bundt® pan. Make a glaze by boiling the butter and brown sugar in a saucepan for 1 minute. Pour into bottom of Bundt® pan. Put the sugar and cinnamon in a plastic bag, add the cut dough, seal and shake. Layer the sugared dough pieces in the Bundt® pan, adding some of the dried fruit sprinkled over each layer, finishing with the dough. Bake for 40 to 45 minutes. Cool for 10 minutes before turning out onto a plate. For a special treat, glaze with frosting.

In a mixer, mix the butter and cream cheese together, add the powdered sugar and beat about 10 minutes. Mix in the lemon juice and vanilla and drizzle over cooled Monkey Bread.
