Pull apart bread cinnamon

Delightful, sugar free and filled with cinnamon on both sides. It sounds like everyone favorites bread for a hot drink on a rainy day.

As I currently have some time, I had been browsing on the internet the other day. Trying to get new, exciting ideas, inspirational recipes that We have never tried before, to amaze my loved ones with. Looking for quite some time unfortunately couldn’t find too many interesting stuff. Just before I thought to give up on it, I stumbled on this scrumptious and simple dessert by chance. The dessert looked so delightful on its pic, that required quick actions.

It was easy to imagine how it is made, its taste and how much my hubby might love it. Actually, it is quite easy to impress the guy when it comes to cakes. Anyways, I went to the page: Suncakemom and simply followed the simple instuctions that have been coupled with great pictures of the operation. It just makes life quite easy. I could suppose it’s a bit of a hassle to take photos in the midst of baking in the kitchen as you may normally have sticky hands so I sincerely appreciate the time and energy she placed in to build this blogpost and recipe conveniently followed.

With that said I’m inspired presenting my very own recipe in a similar fashion. Many thanks the idea.

I was fine tuning the initial formula to make it for the taste of my family. I’ve got to mention it turned out an awesome success. They prized the flavour, the thickness and loved having a delicacy such as this during a lively week. They basically wanted more, a lot more. Thus the next time I’m not going to commit the same miscalculation. I’m gonna multiply the amount to keep them pleased.

Pull apart bread cinnamon was first baked by SunCakeMom

Put the fresh yeast into a half cup of lukewarm milk. Set it aside for five minutes. If it gets foamy don’t worry. It’s normal.

Get a big bowl and put flour, sliced butter, eggs and the rest of the milk in it.

Pour the yeasty milk into a big bowl on top of the other ingredients.

Knead the mixture well until it’s even and there’s no flour left on the edge of the bowl.

Cover the bowl and leave it in a warm place for about half an hour to rise. (We can put it in the 100°F / 40°C heated oven. Be careful not to turn the heat higher than that because it will kill the yeast and the dough is never going to rise.)

In the meantime, prepare the filling. Put butter, honey and ground cinnamon into a medium bowl, whisk them together and leave the cream on the side ready to spread.

After half an hour waiting take dough out of the bowl onto a lightly floured work surface and roll it into a 12 inch / 30cm square. Flouring underneath the dough is important as this coating will prevent it to stick down.

Spread the coat of butter, cinnamon and honey combo evenly on the top of the dough.

Cut the square into 4 equal strips and put them on top of each other. This may be trickier as it sounds if the dough sticks to the counter. Use a plastic scraper to help getting the dough off the worktop if it’s necessary. The dough is quite soft so try not to pull it much more than necessary.

When they are evenly on top of each other cut them into as wide rectangles as the baking tray.

Fill up the baking tray rather loosely. If it’s packed too tight the dough will bake together and we won’t be able to tear it.

Leave them under a clean kitchen cloth for another 20 minutes to rise then pop them into the preheated 365°F / 180°C oven for half an hour.

In some cases they can be baked earlier, in other ovens it would take 40 minutes to be ready. So it is worth to check after 25 minutes. Get a fork or a toothpick and poke the bread if no dough is left on the toothpick you can turn off the oven and take the bread out. Leave them cool down a bit before serving.
