Cinnamon Pull Apart Loaf /Cinnamon Pull Apart Bread

We are starting the first week of 65th edition of blogging marathon and for this week I chose pull apart breads.
My kids love homemade breads and buns a lot.Especially if its cinnamon flavor its a real treat for them.So made two small loaves  of pull apart bread ,the loaf has come out so well and the house was filled with the aroma of cinnamon.
The bread tasted awesome and I had half of the loaf as soon as I finished taking the picture.Rest of the loaves were gobbled by my kids.I made the bread dough with 4.5 cups and  divided the dough to make another savory roll.The given measurement makes a 8 ½ x 4 ½ loaf,off to the recipe......

                                                                     Cinnamon Pull Apart Loaf/Bread

   Basic Information

   Preparation time ~ 30 minutes
   Resting time ~1.5 hours minutes
   Cooking time ~ 25 minutes
   Makes ~ 2 (6"x 3") loaf



All purpose flour/maida
2.5 cups +
2-3 tbs for dusting
Milk powder
2 tbs 
1 tsp
3/4 cup
Instant yeast
1 tsp
2  tbs
1.5 tbs
Cream or butterfor brushing
 For the filling

1/2 cup
Cinnamon powder
1 tbs 
1 tbs 
For the glaze

Confectionery sugar
1.25 cups
1 tbs 
Vanilla (optional)
few drops 
  • Take the milk and butter in a pan and keep it on a flame till the butter melts.Put off the flame,to this add the salt and sugar,mix it well.Keep it aside till it comes to luke warm.
  • Meanwhile in a mixing bowl take the all purpose flour,milk powder and instant yeast.To this add the luke warm milk mixture and knead it to a soft,pliable dough.Knead it well for 10 minutes on a floured surface.Keep it in a warm place for an hour to rise.
  • After an hour the dough would be doubled in size and punch down the dough.Divide it into two equal parts.Also mix the cinnamon and sugar,keep it aside.Now on a floured surface, roll the dough to 10" circle of 1/4 " thickness.Apply a tsp of butter evenly on the rolled dough and sprinkle the cinnamon-sugar mixture.
  • Using a 3" round cookie cutter,cut the dough.Fold each round to a semi circle and arrange in it a loaf pan as shown.Keep it in a warm place for 20-25 minutes.After the second raise brush the top of the dough with fresh cream or milk.
  •  Bake it in a preheated oven at 350 F for 25-30 minutes.Once its done remove it from the oven and transfer it to a wire rack to cool down.Meanwhile mix the powdered sugar along with few drops of vanilla and milk.Once the loaf comes to room temperature,drizzle the glaze on top of the bread.Let it rest for 10-15 minutes.
  •  Serve it with tea or coffee.


  • The dough should be slightly stick,don't add too much of flour while kneading.
  • The rolls taste better when it is served warm,just microwave it for 5 seconds and serve. .
  • The sweetness was just perfect if you want it a bit sweeter version then add another tbs of sugar.
  • The amount of cinnamon powder can be increased according to personal preference.I reduced the amount from the original recipe.
