Cinnamon Pull-Apart Bread

A great option for Christmas morning breakfast!

This is a recipe I’ve made the last few years, so we’ll call it a tradition.  It’s a plate full of sugar, cinnamon, brown sugar, buttery goodness.

For me, the inspiration comes from three places…

  • It’s an homage to the old-school pull-apart recipe that my Mom always made.  For us it was a New Year’s Day tradition, and we called it “Monkey Bread”.
  • It also comes from me walking through the bakery at the grocery store, and seeing all of the freshly baked bread.  Like many, I normally avoid bread & carbs like it’s a flesh-eating bacteria.  But I would always see and SMELL the bread, and want to find an excuse to use it.  Then one day…
  • I came across this recipe from Bobby Flay.  For full disclosure purposes, I have a huge man-crush on Bobby Flay so I couldn’t wait to give this one a try.

It’s delicious, and pretty simple too.  And while I’m no chef, it is the most beautiful of all of the dishes that I make.  Very Instagram-appropriate!

Give is a try, and let me know how it turns out!
