Friday's Food . . . Pull Apart Cinnamon Bread . . . .

So this is simply made with a sweet yeast risen dough.  Any favorite recipe will do. When a yeast dough is sweet it usually has sugar, eggs, and butter in it. Often Milk and sometimes vanilla.  So, my favorite recipe is out of the Fanny Farmer Baking cookbook that my Maid of Honor gave me when  I got married.  You make the base dough and turn it into sticky buns, kuchen, Cinnamon rolls etc.... or in this case Cinnamon Pull apart Bread.

  • Make the dough , after the first rise, roll it out in to a rectangle. 
  •  Rub butter all over the surface or brush on melted butter,  then sprinkle generously with cinnamon sugar.  
  • Next using your Pizza cutter cut your rectangle into 2-2.5 inch strips vertically then make similar cuts horizontally until you have squares or rectangles.
  • Pick up 4 and stack them and place in your well greased Bread pan, into 2 rows. 
  • Set pan in a warm place and let it rise again.
  • Bake as directed by your base dough,  usually 30-35 min at 350 degrees or until golden brown.
  • Remove from pan and enjoy while warm

A couple of basic Yeast Sweet Dough recipes are as follows:   - this one makes a lot of dough- probably 2 of these.  Amount of flour tells you how much you are making, this one has 8-10 cups of Flour, standard is closer to 4-6 cups.
