Pull Apart Bread
To prepare the dough, combine milk, oil and 1/4 cup sugar in a large saucepan. Heat it until warm to the touch and sugar dissolves. Then remove the pan from the heat.
Sprinkle in the yeast and add 2 cups of flour. Stir to combine, then cover with a tea towel and allow to rise for an hour.
Stir in the remaining 1/4 cup flour, along with baking powder, baking soda and salt. If dough is too sticky to handle, stir in another tablespoon of flour.
Roll out dough onto a floured surface making it into a big rectangle. Brush melted butter all over the dough.
Mix together the remaining 3/4 cup sugar and cinnamon in a small bowl, and sprinkle the cinnamon sugar all over the dough.
Use a pizza cutter to cut the dough into 6 strips, then stack all the strips into one long stack. Cut the stack of strips into 6 pieces each. Place the stacks sideways into a greased standard size loaf pan. Be sure not to cram them into the loaf pan, and leave space for the bread to expand.
Cover the loaf pan with a tea towel and allow to rise for another hour.
Preheat oven to 350 F. Bake the bread for 30 minutes. Cover the top of the bread with aluminum foil about halfway through if it is browning too quickly.
Remove pan from the oven. Allow to cool for about 10 minutes on a wire rack. Run a knife alone the edges to release the bread from the pan.
Mix together the icing ingredients and drizzle over the top when the bread is still warm. Serve warm or at room temperature.
These beauties are nutrient-dense, full of healthy fats, protein and antioxidants. And not to mention, with staying power to keep you fueled well until lunchtime. Be sure you don’t skip the cinnamon in these muffins. Not only does cinnamon have several wonderful health-related effects on the body, but it is magic when paired with blueberries.
I will admit that I adore traditional banana nut bread, but I always feel as though there is something missing. In this recipe, I added cinnamon and nutmeg to provide a warmth and depth of flavor that cannot be achieved any other way. For those of you who say, “I do not like bananas,” you should still give this recipe a try. My husband said that it reminded him of carrot cake!
