It all started when I found this PIN. It looked soooo good and when my husband said he was going to go to Burger King for some Cinnabons ... I was like, no way. I can make some of this pull a part cinnamon bread. (Side note: it's a good thing my husband insisted on going to BK to get the cinnamon rolls, cause we ended up eating those.)
Any how, Joy the Baker, who's blog the pin came from, gave really good directions and the photos were excellent. My mouth was watering as I started to get the ingredients together. I suppose my trouble started here, when I discovered you needed yeast to make this wonderful bread. I figured, "eh, yeast only makes bread rise, I can deal with flat bread." So, I continued on my way with the other ingredients.
According to the BLOG:
I followed the directions to the tee ... until I got to the cutting part. My second mistake, I sliced the strips too thin. Third mistake, I cut them into weird squares; not like the perfect rectangles she had. Next, I piled all my jacked up squares into the bread pan ... again, wasn't as pretty as hers. Here is where I started to worry. I tasted the dough before putting it into the oven. If tasted like rubber ... like chewing on a tire. I was like, "eh, maybe the oven will soften it up a lil'."Makes: one 9x5x3-inch loafRecipe adapted from HungryGirlPorVidaPrint this Recipe!
For the Dough:3 cups all-purpose flour1/4 cup granulated sugar2 1/4 teaspoons (1 envelope) active dry yeast1/2 teaspoon salt2 ounces unsalted butter1/3 cup whole milk1/4 cup water2 large eggs, at room temperature1 teaspoon pure vanilla extractFor the Filling:1 cup granulated sugar2 teaspoons ground cinnamon1/2 teaspoon fresh ground nutmeg2 ounces unsalted butter, melted until browned
After it cooked in the oven,
Fast forward to next morning, I unwrap the bread and attempt to pull me off a piece. And attempt again ... and again. With not avail, I couldn't pull apart my pull apart bread. I could however, probably break a window by throwing it at it.
Lesson learned: Use yeast.
All the comments on the blog explained how amazing the bread was and I believe them. I am not giving up on this recipe. I will attempt it again, and this time use yeast. This mishap has nothing to do with the recipe ... it was user error. LOL
And there you have it folks! I hope you enjoy these as much as I do and don't forget!
