Overnight Caramel Roll Recipe

Overnight Bundt Caramel Rolls are easy to prepare, oo-ey, goo-ey, cinnamon-y bites of moist deliciousness! Not only do they take only about 5 minutes to prepare, you make them the night before, and pop them in the oven the next morning around 35-45 minutes before serving. Easy enough for everyday, elegant enough for special occasions and entertaining!

  • Prep Time: 5 mins
  • Cook Time: 35 mins
  • Total Time: 40 minutes
  • Yield: 10 to 12 servings 1x

Ingredients

Scale
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans, toasted
  • 1819 frozen, unbaked bread rolls (do not thaw) – I use Rhodes brand
  • 1 package (3.5 ounce) dry butterscotch pudding mix
  • 1/2 cup salted butter
  • 3/4 cup light brown sugar
  • 3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon

Instructions

  1. Butter a 10-inch (12 cup) Bundt pan.
  2. Sprinkle bottom of pan evenly with chopped pecans.
  3. Place bread rolls in pan, touching and filling the bottom first, then layering on top.
  4. Sprinkle pudding evenly over top of rolls. Set aside.
  5. In a small saucepan, melt butter over low heat, then stir in the brown sugar and cinnamon. Continue cooking, stirring constantly, until sugar is dissolved. Pour butter mixture evenly over bread rolls and pudding mixture. Leave out, uncovered (do not refrigerate), overnight. (Dough will rise over the top of the pan.)
  6. The next morning, preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  7. Bake rolls for 25 to 35 minutes. Put a cookie sheet on the rack under the pan to catch any drippings. Remove from heat and let cool slightly in the pan (2 to 3 minutes).
  8. Place a serving plate over the top of the Bundt pan and, holding the plate and pan together, flip them over so the plate is on the bottom and remove the Bundt pan. The rolls hold together like a coffee cake and are topped with yummy caramel sauce and pecans. Pull the rolls apart with your hands as you serve them.

Notes

Note on removing cooked rolls from pan: If you wait more than 2 to 3 minutes to take the rolls out of the pan, you risk the yummy gooey sauce remaining in the pan. I invert them onto a serving plate, then place them in a warming (or 200 degree) oven to stay warm.
