Cinnamon Sugar Pull-Apart Bread {A Pretty Life}
My bread kind of popped out of the pan, but it was delish!
Cinnamon Sugar Pull-Apart Bread.  Um yes please, I’ll eat the whole thing.  By myself.  When I saw this recipe at Joy the Baker, I knew I had to make it, and that we would LOVE it.  It’s just that kind of recipe.  Well, the family is thanking me, as we all head off in separate directions for a sugar induced nap.
I kind of cheated with the recipe though.  I don’t make bread the old-fashioned way.  I use *insert gasp here* a bread machine.  I love my bread machine.  I figured I would try to make the dough with it, and if it didn’t work out, then oh well.  But work out it did!


Notes about making the dough:
The dough I made is for my bread machine, which is an Oster from 1999.
Important!  If you are using a bread machine, use the recipe for Sweet Dough, from your recipe book for your machine.

If you want to make the dough from scratch you can find the recipe over at Joy the Baker.



Cinnamon Sugar Pull-Apart Bread


The Dough:

  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 tbsp margarine or butter
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 1/2 tbsp skim milk powder
  • 1 tsp bread machine yeast

Cinnamon Sugar Mix:

  • Cinnamon-Sugar Mix
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 tsp cinnamon
  • 4 tbsp melted browned butter


The Dough:

  1. Set the bread machine to the dough cycle.
  2. When it is finished, remove the dough from the machine and set it in a warm place, cover with a clean tea towel, and let rise for 1 hour.
  3. At this point, you can put it in the fridge to use the next day, but when you take it out, let it sit for 30 minutes to warm up.

Cinnamon Sugar Mix:

  1. Combine the sugar and cinnamon. Set aside
  2. In a saucepan, melt and brown your butter. Set aside.

Putting it together:

  1. Roll out dough to measure 12x20 inches.
  2. Slather it in your butter.
  3. Spread on the cinnamon-sugar mix, evenly. Use all of it. Yes.
  4. Cut your dough into 6 even strips, vertically.
  5. Stack your pieces on top of each other.
  6. Cut into 6 even strips again.
  7. Grease a loaf pan with butter.
  8. Line up your dough pieces as shown above.
  9. Cover your pan with a clean tea towel again, and let rise for 30-45 minutes more.
  10. Then, in a preheated 350 degree oven, bake for 35-45 minutes. (I put a cookie sheet under my tin, because the sugar mix started to bubble over.)
  11. When baking is complete, take bread out of the oven, and let rest in the pan for about 15 minutes.
Here’s a visual on how to prep the dough.  This is the fun part!

  • Reply Ellen Richardson December 17, 2016 at 5:12 PM Question, if you're going to cut the dough into 6 even pieces, wouldn't it be easier to roll it out to 12x18?
  • Reply Ellen Richardson December 17, 2016 at 5:41 PM Also, I think the flour should be 3 cups, not 2.
    • Reply Jo-Anna@APrettyLife December 19, 2016 at 11:22 AM Hi Ellen! This is the bread recipe for my specific bread machine so the amounts are correct. But if you have a different machine, your recipe may differ. But both will work. :)
