How to Make Cinnamon Pull-Apart Bread

This recipe is super easy to make with only a few simple ingredients. Line a loaf pan with parchment paper and spray with cooking spray. In a small bowl, combine brown sugar and cinnamon. Set aside. Unfold a puff pastry sheet. Roll the pastry sheet into a 12×10-inch rectangle.

Brush the pastry sheet with melted butter and sprinkle with cinnamon-sugar mixture. Top with chopped pecans. Lightly press the toppings into the pastry. Cut the puff pastry into 4 (10×3-inch) strips. Stack the strips on top of each other making one 4-layer stack.  Cut the stack crosswise to form 4 stacked squares.

Place the stacked squares on their sides in the loaf pan. Repeat with the remaining pastry sheet. Bake bread in a preheated oven until golden brown. Remove the bread from the pan and cool on a wire rack for an hour.

In a medium bowl, stir together powdered sugar, maple syrup, and milk. Place the bread on a serving plate and pour the glaze over the bread and enjoy!

  • Can use brown sugar or granulated sugar.
  • You can omit the pecans if you don’t like nuts.
  • You can use salted or unsalted butter in this recipe. 
  • Store leftovers at room temperature in an airtight container.
