I’ve made lemon sticky  buns before, but had yet to try the lemon monkey bread.

Maybe because I’m such a sucker for the traditionalism of cinnamon monkey bread with it’s sticky caramel cinnamon sauce.

I guess I was in denial that there was other monkey bread out there.

Buttery, crunchy, and packed full of lemon and sugar flavor, it is sure to please the lemon lovers in your life.  I believe I’m going to have to drop this off at my mother’s house tonight.

The best part about this recipe is that just like most monkey breads, which are made with refrigerated biscuit dough, it is easy! It is made with store bought frozen Rhodes rolls (which I always have in my freezer for soup nights) which are drizzled with butter, sprinkled with lemon zesty sugar and drizzled in a lemon glaze.

My kids really loved these too, which is odd, because they don’t usually like lemon desserts.  I guess they’re really just that good.  God bless you, Six Sisters, for this amazing recipe!
