Cinnamon Roll Pulls


I've been seeing a lot of different versions of this bread floating around the internet. All of the versions I've seen are savory and use lots of cheese. While I love a good cheesy bread, I decided to go in a different direction and make a sweet version. I settled on a cinnamon roll version.

This bread is SO addictive. We could not stop pulling off pieces of this delicious cinnamon sugar bread and popping it in our mouths. The Vanilla Honey Butter that I used in the bread is amazing. You must make it. It absolutely makes the dish! It was so good that I could have eaten it with a spoon. I didn't, but I could have. Give this bread a try for breakfast, brunch or even dessert. It is quick and makes a great presentation.





Cinnamon Roll Pulls
(Printable Recipe)

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.

  3. Both versions sound great, but I really like your idea.

    Sounds like a big ol cinnamon roll and a whole lot easier to make.

  9. When I couldn't find sour dough I used a round loaf of Hawaiian Bread. I would bet this recipe would be great with that kind of soft sweet bread.

  22. I also saw it on Wives with Knives site and was sure you would have many great recipes. I do most of my cooking when camping and this is so easy it should work really well in a camp oven.

  30. I made two of these. One for hubby at home and one for work. The first one I followed the recipe. The second one I used brown sugar instead of regular sugar and it wasn't so grainy. It melted just like a gooey cinnamon roll. Very cool recipe.

  37. My hubby called from the grocery store tonight (I lucked out with a man who stops at the store on his way home without me having to ask!!) and I had him pick us up 2 loaves of Sourdough bread. Cannot wait to try this! The kids had their drolling just looking at the screen!

  38. My 9 yr old and I made this for New Yr's brunch and it was a hit! I did have to add more butter and I could have cooked it a little longer than 25 minutes (maybe my bread was bigger??), but it tasted heavenly!

    I even drizzled some over leftover wheat buns for my daughter with allergies and she loved it too.

    Thanks for sharing it!

  39. I made this recipe but halved the butter and all sugars, and it was still very, very sweet. I cannot imagine what this would taste like if it actually had all that sugar on it. I will make this again, but next time I will use 1/3 of the sugar and butter, and I will avoid the sourdough and substitute w/ whole grain as each of my family members commented on the sour aftertaste. I bought a standard size oval sourdough loaf from our local bakery.

  42. Has anyone tried this with a cream cheese glaze?

    ReplyDelete
  43. I tried this bread and the hardest part was to actually cut it the slices in the loaf, especially the second set of cuts. Its possible my bread knife isn't very good though. Anyway, it was delicious, even if not as pretty as the picture. I only used about 1/2 of the butter mix (saved the rest!) and maybe 1/4 of the sugar/cinnamon mix.

    ReplyDelete
  44. This was AMAZING! I used my electric knife to cut the bread (made it 100 times easier) and I only used a quarter of the cinnamon sugar mix. I think next time I might try a little brown sugar in the mix. Thanks for the recipe!

  52. I made this to take to a ladies brunch, but being the naughty individual that I am, changed it just a bit...I used half brown sugar & half white sugar, and upped the cinnamon to 2 Tbls. Even though there was "extra" cinnamon sugar, I just sprinkled it all on anyway. Delicious, even cold.

  63. There is something about sourdough bread that I just LOVE. I always make my Sourdough bread with starters from Sourdough's International, never disappointed with what they have!

    ReplyDelete
  64. I use challah bread instead of sourdough. Gets rave reviews every time. I do skip the icing as the challah is so sweet already.
    Thanks for fun and easy recipes!
