Cinnamon Sugar Pull-Apart Bread


Make the dough for this Cinnamon Sugar Pull-Apart Bread with your bread machine.  So easy, and delicious!  Sweet, gooey and full of cinnamon sugar deliciousness!



The Dough:

  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 tbsp 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:

  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 tsp cinnamon
  • 4 tbsp melted butter


The Dough:

  1. Add all of the bread ingredients to the bread machine in the order I have them listed.
  2. Set the bread machine to the dough cycle.
  3. 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.
  4. 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 or microwave, melt your butter. Set aside.

Putting it together:

  1. Roll out dough to measure 12 x 18 inches.
  2. Slather it with the melted butter.
  3. Spread the cinnamon-sugar mix evenly over the dough. Use all of it. Yes.
  4. Cut your dough into 6 even strips, vertically.
  5. Stack the dough 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 below.
  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 tends to bubble over.)
  11. When baking is complete, take bread out of the oven, and let rest in the pan for about 15 minutes.
  12. Enjoy!
