For a handful of weeks, I have been drooling over Joy the Baker’s Cinnamon Sugar Pull-Apart Bread. Just look at the pictures – you'll want to take it out of the screen and eat it RIGHT.NOW.

Clearly I don’t have much patience… I want what I want and I want it now. As you will soon realize, I am a cinnamon fiend. It’s the best spice God created. No exaggerations. I put it on everything I can… Cinnamon toast is my breakfast 70% of the time. I toss cinnamon with my sweet potato fries, sprinkle it in butternut squash soup, and sprinkle it on yoghurt. Anything that can have cinnamon on it will as far as I am concerned. So, when I stumbled upon this recipe – I knew I had to make it. 

My mum was being quite impatient – so I didn’t get a picture post-baking, but here’s the dough before I stuck it in the oven. 

I know - I haven't perfected the "making it look absolutely delicious" skill quite yet, but I'm working on it. And for the record, it IS absolutely delicious.

Due to mum’s lack of patience, I didn’t bake the bread for the entire time the recipe called for. The edges were a golden brown and the center was cooked, but still gooey & yeasty. So, if you’re not a yeasty (ew) gooey bread person, I’d say keep it in the oven until the top of the bread is a golden brown and not just the edges. Twas yummy, but I would have preferred if it had been a tad more cooked through. 

Cinnamon.Sugar.Bread. life doesn’t get much better. You know you want to make it.

So go on over to Joy the Baker and make the Cinnamon Sugar Pull-Apart Bread.
