Sliced Sour Dough Cinnamon Bread with Glaze

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.

How to Make Cinnamon Roll Pulls

This bread is super simple to make. Start with making the vanilla honey butter. Combine butter, powdered sugar, honey, and vanilla. Cut the sourdough loaf 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. Wrap the bread in foil and bake until warm. Mix together powdered sugar and milk. Drizzle over the warm bread and pull away!

  • I used a loaf of sourdough bread. You can use any loaf of bread that you prefer. This method will work with any firm loaf of bread.
  • You can assemble the bread ahead of time and refrigerate it overnight. You may need to add a few minutes to the cooking time if baking cold after being in the refrigerator.
  • Can Cinnamon Roll Pulls be frozen? I haven’t frozen this bread, but I don’t see why not! I would freeze it unbaked and thaw and bake when ready to serve.

  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract

Glaze

  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 to 2 Tbsp milk

Instructions:

  1. My friend described this to me a while ago after having it at a party. It sounded so good but i could not find a recipe whichever google search i used (i just didn't know what one would call it) and just gave up.. so glad to have found your recipe, will be making it soon enough! 😀

  2. Boy, am I having to jump through some hula hoops to post this comment! Anyhoo, LOVE this blog, love the facebook page, And mmmmm, I love, love, love the recipes!
    Especially looking forward to making the cinnamon roll pull apart bread this Saturday!

  3. 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!

  4. 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!

  5. Does anyone know if it's possible to premake the bread and throw it in the oven in the morning? Thank you 🙂

  6. We made this, this morning. It is so good!! My girls all licked their plates. Thank you so much for sharing this 🙂

  9. Do you know how excited I am to make this? I just showed our neighbors and plan on making both versions within the next week!
    Thank you!

  10. 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.

  11. Just made this last night and it was AMAZING!!! My family LOVED it and was so SIMPLE to make…kudos!

  12. This was really yummy. I had some leftover dinner rolls and made individual ones. Use lots of the Vanilla Honey Butter.

  16. 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!

  17. 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.

  18. 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.

  19. 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!

  20. 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!

  21. This will be our new Christmas morning tradition along with my homemade hot cocoa mix. Thanks for sharing this…Merry Christmas! !

  23. 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.

  24. Made this for the first time tonight… My family loved it!! Not only was it easy,quick and very addicting, it was o so yummy! Coffee, cinnamon roll pulls and a movie.. ingredients for a wonderful family night… Thank you for sharing.

  25. I cannot wait to go buy the bread to make this! My first visit to your blog, but now I am a follower. I hope you will drop in to my blog, and join..new friends are always welcome!

  26. Now…if this lovely recipe was already baked and sitting in front of me, I'd be doing a happy dance. Thanks for sharing.

  27. 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.

  28. Cathy, over at Wives With Knives" just introduced you. I had to come over for a delicious visit. I've never seen this done and certainly would not have thought it up for myself. I plan to give you and Cathy credit when I wow my family and friends!!

    Best,
    Bonnie

  29. We made this last night thinking that wee would have half for dessert and half for breakfast…lets just say there was none left by the morning 🙂 It was delicious!

  30. I made this today… and used last minute decided to use cream cheese icing… It was amazing, and the 9 other people who were with me LOVED it! Thanks so much, I shared this with all my favorite cooks. Quick, Easy versatile!

  31. My Mother made this this weekend on our girls trip to the beach, we all LOVED it, I will be making it again, very soon!

  32. i am making this right now.
    can't wait.
    i put you on my happy things list that is why all those links show up on the bottom. 🙂
    it was one link on the page but it looks like a ton! sorry about that.
    and…..i am going to need to hunt down the cheese versions of this?! wow that sounds YUMMY too.

  33. Saw this post, stopped at the store on the way home, made it that night, and my husband and I devoured it.

  34. 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.

  35. I've seen all the same cheesy breads you're talking about, love them. But I'm also LOVING your sweet version. So creative!

  36. Oh my, this looks delicious!! I can't wait to try it – planning it for breakfast on Sunday morning!!

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

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