Cinnamon Pull-apart Bread

We had homemade pizza for dinner a couple of weeks ago.  I had some extra dough, so we made cinnamon pull-apart bread.  It is easy and yummy.  I probably make this once a month or so.  I usually use this bread recipe and make one loaf of regular bread and one loaf of the cinnamon pull-apart bread.

I just roll my dough out into a rectangle, I don't really measure, smear it with butter...sprinkle on the cinnamon sugar, cut it into strips, stack it and cut it into strips again.  

Place it into a bread pan.  For the ends of your pan you want to place the cinnamon sugared side of the dough towards the middle, not touching the pan.  I scoop up any of the cinnamon sugar that fell out while transferring it to the pan and just dump it on top.

Let it rise.....Bake it, drizzle with frosting or sweetened condensed milk and enjoy!!

Cinnamon Pull-apart Bread, makes two loaves

1 cup warm water
1 cup warm milk
1/3 cup sugar
1 package yeast(2 1/4 teaspoon)
1/3 cup oil
1/2 T salt
1 egg
4-6 cups flour
4 T butter
1/3 cup brown sugar
1/3 cup sugar
1/2 T cinnamon
Glaze - below (optional)
Sweetened condensed milk (optional)

Directions:  In mixer combine yeast, sugar, and warm water; let grow until bubbly(about 5 minutes). Add milk and mix.  Slowly add 2 cups flour, mix and then add salt.  Mix in oil and egg.  Add 1/2 cup flour at a time until it comes away from side of bowl.  I continue to 'mix' my bread in my mixer(with bread hook or attachment) for 5-6 minutes to 'knead' it.  Let rise in mixing bowl, until doubled for about 30 minutes. 

Grease a bread pan, ~9x5x3" and set it aside.  Mix brown sugar, sugar, and cinnamon together and set aside.Divide dough in half, this recipe will make 2 loaves.  On a lightly floured surface roll 1 section of dough into ~10x14 inch rectangle(this is totally an estimate...just roll it into a rectangle :)).  Brush dough with 2 T of melted butter, sprinkle with half of your cinnamon mixture.  Cut length-wise into 3 strips.  Place strips on top of each other and cut into ~5-6 strips(I like to use a pizza cutter to slice my dough).  Place your strips side by side in bread pan.  For the ends of your pan you want to place the cinnamon sugared side of the dough towards the middle, not touching the pan.  Cover with greased plastic wrap(I like to spray one side of my plastic wrap with cooking spray, so that it doesn't stick to the dough).  Let rise 30-40 minutes.  Bake at 350 degrees for 25-30 minutes....Repeat with the rest of your dough.

**Don't stack your dough into your bread pan too tight or it won't cook thoroughly in the middle.  It will be doughy.

Remove from oven.  When it is cool enough to handle, dump it out onto a plate, cutting board or platter(I always flip mine top or bread pan side up).  Drizzle with a glaze or with sweetened condensed milk.  Pull-apart and enjoy!

Glaze:  In a small bowl whisk together powdered sugar, vanilla and enough milk to make a glaze of drizzling consistency.
