more late night baking adventures.
a few nights ago i made a cinnamon pull-apart loaf, actually the recipe made 2, so i froze one. it was so yummy and was a lovely breakfast treat the other morning.
i made my normal bread dough (50% wholemeal, 50% bakers flour) and after the 1st rising, i rolled it out to a large rectangle, covered the top with a butter/brown sugar/cinnamon mixture and then cut it into strips which i then folded concertina style and placed side by side in a baking tin. i made 2 loaves and put them into a cold oven and baked at 160 for 40 mins (putting into a cold oven allowed for an extra rising).
and when it was ready, it really just “pulled apart” into little separate bun bits that were threaded through with cinnamony deliciousness. I could have done more of the butter/brown sugar/cinnamon mixture actually, it was a little more bread-y than bun-y. but that’s how i like it, not too sweet, just a hint of sweetness.
i’m keen to make it as a garlic/olive/pesto loaf next time.
