Peaches ‘N Cream Plunk-it Bread

Growing up in Arkansas, my Granddad always brought a few 5-gallon buckets of peaches home for my Granny during the summer.  I could never get enough of them then, and I can’t get enough of them now!  In fact, I think I could eat enough peaches to make myself sick on a daily basis.

While goofing around on Facebook one night I came across a post a friend shared from the Pillsbury Facebook group.  It was for a version on Monkey Bread (we always called it Plunk-it Bread back home) using peaches.  It immediately struck my interest, so my daughter and I quickly whipped it up and test drove it.  After following their idea for the dessert we decided we needed to give it our own tweak here and there in order to make it out of this world.

After a week or so of us kicking around ideas I was hit with the idea of using cinnamon rolls instead of regular biscuits in the recipe, so I grabbed a plain can of refrigerated cinnamon rolls that came with cream cheese icing. It’s supposed to be Peaches ‘N Cream flavored, right?! ;)  The recipe also called for the dough balls to be filled with a bit of cream cheese before being out into the bundt pan.  After making this recipe twice, I really can not tell any major flavor difference if it was left out. So if you want to cut those calories, go ahead and leave that step out! :)

Here is what my daughter and I finally came up with, and I hope you enjoy it as much as we did!

Peaches ‘N Cream Plunk-it Bread

Ingredients

  • 2 cans refrigerated cinnamon rolls with cream cheese icing
  • 1- 8 oz package of cream cheese, softened
  • 1/2 c granulated sugar
  • 3 ripe peaches, peeled, cored, and sliced thinly

Instructions

  1. Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Mix cream cheese and sugar together thoroughly and set aside.
  3. Spray bundt pan with cooking spray.
  4. Remove cream cheese icing packets from cinnamon rolls and set aside.
  5. Separate each cinnamon roll, leaving it in its natural shape. (Do not unroll).
  6. Flatten each cinnamon roll and cut into quarters.
  7. Fill each quarter with a bit of cream cheese mixture, folding over to seal all edges.
  8. Place the dough balls from one entire can of cinnamon rolls into bottom of prepared bundt pan.
  9. Layer dough balls with half of sliced peaches.
  10. Repeat dough ball layer with remaining can of cinnamon rolls.
  11. Top with remaining peaches, spreading evenly over the top.
  12. Place in pre-heated oven and cook for 30-45 minutes, depending on your oven, and until the center dough is cooked thoroughly.
  13. While plunk-it bread is in the oven, combine the two cream cheese icing pouches with remaining cream cheese and sugar mixture and mix well. **You can also only use the cream cheese icing packets if you do not want to use the leftover cream cheese mixture.**
  14. Remove from oven and flip out onto serving dish and let set for 2-3 minutes before removing from bundt pan.
  15. Top with cream cheese icing mixture and serve warm.

There was a little of this leftover for the next night, and it re-heated easily in the microwave!
