Sugar Free Cinnamon Pull-Apart Bread

Delightful, sugar free and filled with cinnamon on both sides. It sounds like everyone favorites bread for a hot drink on a rainy day.

Everyone loves cinnamon and everybody loves bread. So there is little wonder that we fell in love with this cinnamon Pull-apart Bread. This recipe is not as sweet as it would be with half a cup of sugar but it’s just sweet enough to enjoy it without indulging on unnecessary calories. We may throw in a handful of dried fruits here and there if that tickles our fancy. That probably wouldn’t hurt but this recipe will just do as it is. It’s a perfect companion for our hot drink.

The best thing is that we can put the leftover into the freezer and it’s gonna be like fresh when we defrost it? #NotToWasteCrumbs.

Ingredients:

Dough:

  • 1 cup / 250ml Milk
  • 0.4 oz / 10g Fresh yeast
  • 3½ cup / 450g Flour
  • 2 tablespoon / 25g Butter
  • 1 Egg

Filling:

  • 4 tablespoon / 50g Butter
  • 1 tablespoon Honey
  • 1½ tablespoon Cinnamon (ground)

Kitchen utensils:

  • 8½” x 3″ / 22cm x 7.5cm Baking tray (minimum size)

How to make Cinnamon pull apart bread:

  1. Put the fresh yeast into a half cup of lukewarm milk. Set it aside for five minutes. If it gets foamy don’t worry. It’s normal.
  2. Get a big bowl and put flour, sliced butter, eggs and the rest of the milk in it.
  3. Pour the yeasty milk into a big bowl on top of the other ingredients.
  4. Knead the mixture well until it’s even and there’s no flour left on the edge of the bowl.Pull-apart-bread-process
  5. Cover the bowl and leave it in a warm place for about half an hour to rise. (We can put it in the 100°F / 40°C heated oven. Be careful not to turn the heat higher than that because  it will kill the yeast and the dough is never going to rise.)Pull-apart-bread-process-2-SunCakeMom
  6. In the meantime, prepare the filling. Put butter, honey and ground cinnamon into a medium bowl, whisk them together and leave the cream on the side ready to spread.Pull-apart-bread-process-3-SunCakeMom
  7. After half an hour waiting take dough out of the bowl onto a lightly floured work surface and roll it into a 12 inch / 30cm square. Flouring underneath the dough is important as this coating will prevent it to stick down. Pull-apart-bread-process-7-SunCakeMom
  8. Spread the coat of butter, cinnamon and honey combo evenly on the top of the dough. Pull-apart-bread-process-8-SunCakeMom
  9. Cut the square into 4 equal strips and put them on top of each other. This may be trickier as it sounds if the dough sticks to the counter. Use a plastic scraper to help getting the dough off the worktop if it’s necessary. The dough is quite soft so try not to pull it much more than necessary.Pull-apart-bread-process-9-SunCakeMom
  10. When they are evenly on top of each other cut them into as wide rectangles as the baking tray.Pull-apart-bread-process-11-SunCakeMom
  11. Fill up the baking tray rather loosely. If it’s packed too tight the dough will bake together and we won’t be able to tear it. Pull-apart-bread-process-13-SunCakeMom
  12. Leave them under a clean kitchen cloth for another 20 minutes to rise then pop them into the preheated 365°F / 180°C oven  for half an hour.Pull-apart-bread-process-15-SunCakeMom

 

In some cases it can be done sooner, in other ovens it would take 40 minutes to be ready.  So it is worth to check after 25 minutes. Get a fork or a toothpick and poke the bread if no dough is left on the toothpick we can turn off the oven and take the bread out. Leave them cool down a bit before serving.Pull-apart-bread-process-17-SunCakeMom
