   Amount  Measure       Ingredient -- Preparation Method
 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
      1/2  cup           sugar
    1      tablespoon    cinnamon
   24                    frozen dough balls -- (one loaf’s worth
                         -- of, divided)
                         -- dough
                         sauce
    1      stick         butter -- melted
    1      tablespoon    cinnamon
      1/2  cup           sugar
 
 About 8 hours before serving, or night before, combine first two ingredients in
  a bowl. Remove 24 frozen dough balls from freezer and wet them slightly before
  adding to sugar/cinnamon mixture. Stir to coat and dump into a Bundt pan spray
 ed w/cooking spray. Melt butter and add remaining sauce ingredients in a small 
 bowl and pour over dough. Cover with a towel and let rise 8 hours or overnight.
 
 Bake 350 for about 30 minutes. Place large plate on top and invert bread onto p
 late. Let cool only long enough that you don't get burned - this is best when h
 ot.
 
 Note: I've always gotten my frozen dough balls by defrosting one store-bought f
 rozen bread dough loaf just until I can cut through it w/a knife (about 1 1/2 h
 ours), then divide into 24 equal pieces. I then flash freeze and store in Ziplo
 c until I need them (don't know if it’s bad to defrost dough and freeze w/out c
 ooking like it is w/meat but we haven't had a problem). Soon, I plan on trying 
 the recipe posted here recently that makes 2 loaves +16 balls and just saving u
 p the balls until I'm ready to make t
 he bread. You can play around a lot w/amount of butter, cinnamon and sugar, the
  one I posted above is already cut down, if you want it really gooey and butter
 y then use one and a half sticks of butter.
