Cinnamon and Brown Butter Pull Apart Loaf

By 10:58 AM , , ,

I stumbled across this recipe from Girl Versus Dough some time ago and saved it for the right time. The perfect weekend morning when I was up before The Wife and could fill the house with the smells of buttery, cinnamony, yeasty goodness.  This past Sunday was just such a morning.

This recipe is one of those "make this now" recipes that is every bit as good as you hope it will be.

Dough Ingredients:
2 3/4 cups plus 2 tbsp unbleached all-purpose flour
1/4 cup granulated sugar
2 1/4 tsp active dry yeast
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 stick unsalted butter
1/3 cup milk
1/4 cup water
2 large eggs, room temperature
1/4 tsp pure vanilla extract

Glaze/Filling Ingredients:
1 cup granulated sugar
2 tsp ground cinnamon
pinch of ground nutmeg
1/2 stick unsalted butter - melted until a nutty brown

In the bowl of your stand mixer whisk together two cups of flour, the sugar, yeast and salt.  On your stovetop, melt your butter into your milk, add in your water and vanilla extract and let cool to 115 degrees.

In a separate bowl, whisk your eggs.

Add your milk/butter mixture to the flour and combine just until mixed, add your eggs and knead about two minutes.  Add the remaining 3/4 cup of flour and knead to incorporate for another 2-3 minutes.

Cover the bowl and let the dough rise for about an hour.

While your dough is rising, coming your sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg for the filling.

With about 15 minutes left go ahead and brown your butter on the stovetop.

Grease a 9x5 loaf pan (Our pan is missing, so I used a square 8x8 pan)

When your dough has risen, roll it out to 12x20 rectangle.  Brush your butter on the dough and liberally sprinkle with the cinnamon/sugar mixture.

Using a pizza roller, cut your dough into 3 inch wide strips (or roughly with width of the pan that you are planning on using).  Stack the strips and, using the roller, cut those into 2 inch strips (or strips that are the same height as your pan.)

"Stack" these into your grease pan, cover with a towel and let rise for another 30 minutes.  Top with any remaining butter and cinnamon and sugar.

Preheat your oven to 350 and bake for 30 minutes - but start checking at 20 minutes.  I took mine out at 25 minutes and the inside layers were perfectly soft and doughy.

Enjoy as your house fills with the most amazing smells.
