More of a How To Than a Recipe
There's a recipe making the rounds on the internet for Cinnamon Roll Pull Apart Bread. It's a simple recipe and would be good for a special weekend breakfast with the kids or if you are having guests.
I wanted to try it last week but I was the only one at home since AD had already left for work that day.
So I tried it using a single hard roll.
Basically what you do is slice the roll (or round loaf of bread if you're serving several people) in roughly 1/2 inch cuts going one way. Don't slice all the way through - just slice until you get fairly close to the bottom but the roll (or loaf) is still connected.
Spread honey butter (I have included my recipe for honey butter below) on all the exposed bread between all the cuts.
Now turn the roll (or loaf) 90 degrees and slice the other way. Spread honey butter between the new cuts.
Sprinkle cinnamon sugar liberally between all the cuts.
Wrap the roll (or loaf) in aluminum foil and bake in a preheated 350 degree oven for about 20 minutes (or 30 minutes for a whole loaf).
After removing the bread from the oven, unwrap, move to a plate or serving tray and drizzle with a simple glaze made of powdered sugar and a bit of milk. It might be nice to add a drop or two of vanilla to the glaze.
For the roll I used one spoonful of powdered sugar and stirred in just a couple of drops of milk - just enough to make a thin glaze.
It was a sweet treat on a cool morning.
1/3 cup butter, softened
1/3 cup honey
1/3 cup powdered sugar
2/3 teaspoon cinnamon
Whisk all ingredients together until smooth and keep refrigerated. Serve at room temperature.
