Quick and Easy Cinnamon Pull-Apart

Cinnamon Pull-Apart

I’m still working on getting settled into my new home, so unfortunately I haven’t had as much time as I would like to devote to my baking. When I do get the urge to bake these days, I find myself looking for quick and easy recipes that will get me out of the kitchen fast and back to the ever so fun job of unpacking. 🙂

This versatile treat can be enjoyed with breakfast, or as a dessert. It is very quick and easy to make – which is a good thing, because the first batch was devoured by my family so quickly that they requested I make another one as soon as possible. 😮


Quick and Easy Cinnamon Pull-Apart

1/2 cup granulated sugar
2 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1/3 cup butter, melted
1 loaf (1 lb.) frozen bread dough, thawed

Generously grease and flour a 10-inch fluted pan or a 9-in. x 5-in. loaf pan.
In small shallow bowl, combine sugar and cinnamon; mix well.
Separate dough into 1-inch pieces and roll into balls.
Dip each ball into melted butter; roll in sugar-cinnamon mixture. Arrange in prepared pan. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1 hour.

Bake at 350 degrees for 22-26 minutes or until golden brown. (Cover loosely with foil if top browns too quickly)

Cool in pan for 10 minutes. Loosen edges; remove from pan and place on serving plate. Serve warm. Drizzle with Vanilla Glaze; if desired.

Vanilla Glaze
1 cup powdered sugar
1 – 2 tablespoons milk
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

Combine all ingredients and mix until smooth.

  1. Frozen bread dough added to my grocery list. My kids would LOVE this, ok me too.

    • I’m sure your kids would really enjoy this, Donna. My family certainly did. I’ve already had to make a second batch…and I’ve probably eaten way more than I should. 🙂

  2. After reading your post on Herbed Bread I now keep a package of frozen bread dough in my freezer. It is easy to defrost and so tasty! Thanks.

    • You’re welcome, JG! It certainly is convenient, and I also love the fact that you can do so many other things with the bread dough – besides making basic bread. You can dress it up any way you choose. 🙂

  3. This looks so easy and tasty! I’m going to start keeping frozen bread dough on hand from now on! Thanks for the recipe!

  4. Sounds like a healthier version of Monkey bread which I love. Frozen bread dough is so versatile and handy to have around.
