It’s always best/better to use slightly “stale” bread, aka bread you leave out for a few hours to dry out just a touch. This is much more likely to soak up all those delightful flavors & ingredients we then pour over it. The “denser” the bread it, the better. Such as Italian bread, which is a bit more lovely than french baguettes, for example.

Giant has frozen bread dough (5 frozen small loaves) in a pkg. Thaw out two loaves overnight by leaving at room temp in a pyrex or similar and cover the top of loaves with a cloth or towel. It will both thaw and rise overnight. In the morning, break dough into small handful pieces and follow the recipe here for dipping first in melted butter, then sugar mixture.
Arrange pieces in bundt pan and let the dough pieces rise again, covered with the cloth on top of pan. If I am in a hurry, I let the bundt pan (now ready to bake) sit in a slightly warmed oven, covered with a cloth still to keep it moist) at 150 degrees. After 30-40 min it will rise again to the top of the bundt pan. Take out the pan, then heat the oven to the 325 deg shown here, put back in and bake according to recipe above.
