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. 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!

  2. 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.

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

  4. 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.

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

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

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

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