What'd you eat for breakfast today? Betcha what I ate was better than what you ate--meaning, better tasting, not better for your health. Because this is definitely not good for your health--but is probably good for your momentary Saturday morning breakfast happiness--which must do something good for your body in some way, right?
The recipe came from Joy the Baker. It is Cinnamon Sugar Pull-Apart Bread and works and tastes exactly like the name sounds. Which is delicious. I saw this on Joy's blog, momentarily lost my mind, then had to go to the grocery store at 9pm last night to get some yeast so I could make up the dough and have it all ready for today's breakfast.
The scent of it baking in the your kitchen bright and early on a Saturday is enough to make your day better. It tastes like eating the love child of toast sprinkled with cinnamon sugar and the soft doughy interior of a cinnamon roll. You do not need the distraction of icing with this. Pour yourself a cup of coffee, pull off a chunk and thank the gods for the gift that Joy the Baker is to this world--or better yet, just go to her blog and thank her directly.
Call me crazy but I am already thinking about how I could jerry-rig this recipe to make a pull-apart chocolate babka...
