475 FlaresIf you’ve ever been on Pinterest, chances are you’ve seen a gazillion pieces of furniture painted over with bright colored spray paint, heard about some ridiculous home remedies, learned how to make a gallon of laundry detergent for $0.05 and seen the most amazing photo of pull apart cinnamon bread. The image of pull apart cinnamon bread has been on my mind ever since I caught my first glimpse, I couldn’t stop thinking about it and decided to make my own.
It’s surprisingly really easy to make, I basically made my pizza dough recipe and substituted milk for water and butter for olive oil. If you’ve got an hour on a Sunday morning, to let the dough rise, I highly recommend this recipe.
1 cup milk
4 tbsp butter
3 tbsp sugar
1 pkg yeast
2 cups all purpose flour
1 cup bread flour
2 tbsp butter
1 tbsp cinnamon
3 tbsp sugar
1 tbsp maple syrup
1/4 cup powdered sugar
- In a medium sauce pan, heat milk, 3 tbsp butter and sugar until sugar is dissolved.
- Remove from heat and place in a large glass bowl and when milk mixture cools lightly and becomes lukewarm and add yeast, stir until yeast is dissolved and let sit until yeast blooms and bubbles.
- Add flour and mix until dough forms a ball.
- Knead dough for 1-2 minutes, cover with 1 tbsp melted butter and place covered bowl in a warm dry place to rise for 1 hour.
- After dough has risen, roll out on a floured surface until dough is approximately 1/4″ thick.
- Mix cinnamon and sugar in a small bowl. Brush 2 tbsp melted butter over dough and sprinkle cinnamon and sugar mixture on top. Reserve 2 tsp of cinnamon and sugar mixture.
- Cut dough long wise into 1.5″ strips and stack them on top of each other and cut into 2″ squares.
- Butter a small baking dish, sprinkle with remaining 2 tsp cinnamon and sugar mixture and arrange dough in pan.
- Bake for 23-25 minutes until dough is slightly golden.
- For glaze, mix maple syrup and powdered sugar in a small bowl until glaze forms.
