I did it again. I had too. You have to make this bread. Second time for me and results….. still amazing!
Read below you will get the idea.
Every now and again you find amazing things on the internet. The item below I consider to be one of those items. In surfing around for breakfast ideas for last week’s delivery, I stumbled on to Steph’s site at Plain Chicken and looked repeatedly at this cinnamon pull apart bread. I knew it was a must try.
Instructions sounded pretty straight forward and it used bought bread ( which was a bonus based on timing) and the combination of honey butter and cinnamon – really? Do I have to go any further. All be it is a slight change from yogurt and fruit for breakfast, but every now and again you need to go off the wall and indulge. It helps your mind stay focused on your goals.
Indulge once a week and you will be happy.

Lubed up all over with the honey cinnamon butter ( I could have ate the whole loaf at this stage.
- 1 unsliced round loaf sourdough bread
- 1/2 Cup butter, softened
- 1/4 Cup powdered sugar
- 1/4 Cup honey
- 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 1/4 tsp cinnamon
- 1 cup powdered sugar
- 1-2 Tbsp milk
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
- To make Vanilla Honey Butter: Whip butter and 1/4 cup powdered sugar together until smooth; stir in honey and vanilla. Set aside. (You can use regular butter if desired)
- Cut the bread lengthwise into 1/2″ slices, without cutting through the bottom crust. Spread vanilla honey butter in between slices. Rotate the bread 90 degrees and slice the bread again into 1/2″ pieces, without cutting through the bottom crust. Spread more vanilla honey butter in between new cuts. This doesn’t need to be perfect – just make sure there is lots of butter in between all the cuts.
- Combine sugar and cinnamon. Generously sprinkle in between all cuts. (You may have extra butter and cinnamon sugar.
- It will just depend on how large your bread loaf is.)
- Wrap in foil; place on a baking sheet. Bake at 350 degrees for 25-30 minutes, until bread is warm. Unwrap cinnamon bread and place on serving platter. Combine powdered sugar and milk – adding milk until you get the consistency desired.
- Drizzle icing over bread and serve immediately.
Zesty Tip: I would recommend using an electric knife to cut the bread so you don’t push the bread down too much. The first loaf I made, it was hard not to push down on the sticks of bread “squashing” them. The second loaf, I used the electric knife and made all the difference in the world.
After the glaze…. right out of the oven
Tell me the results after you make it…. I bet their will be no left overs. Talk to you at the end of the week.
