Hey there! How ya doing on this fine Monday? You look like you could use some sugar. Maybe some cinnamon? Oh yes, yes you definitely need it. Even if you don’t think you do, trust me you definitely do.
Here we are at another lovely month of the Secret Recipe Club (SRC) and I am so excited to tell you about the blog I was assigned. I feel SO, SO, SO fortunate to have found Carrie at Bakeaholic Mama. Her blog is ah-mazing, for lack of a better word. Oh my gosh, seriously. EVERY single one of her recipes look awesome. I kinda sorta want her to hang out with me. But…she lives in New Hampshire, and I don’t want to totally creep her out. Anyways, I feel like I’m totally like her. I love all the flavors she puts into her foods. Aaand we share the common love for bologna. Why doesn’t everybody love that stuff? Sure it feels weird, but it’s so yummy! Anyways, if you’d like to find out more about Carrie, you can go to her “About Me” page right here.
I ended up choosing to make her Cinnamon Pull Apart Bubble Bread. It’s sort of like Monkey Bread, but in loaf form. Also, the dough balls are filled with cinnamon chips to give you that extra cinnamon kick! This is a delicious bread that is perfect for breakfast anyway, but is sweet enough to enjoy as a treat any time of the day.
Cinnamon Pull Apart Bubble Bread
(from Bakeaholic Mama)
FOR THE BREAD:
1 batch of pizza dough (for the pizza dough, I used This Recipe, it’s perfect because it is no-rise and you can just use your food processor!)
1/2 cup cinnamon chips
1/4 cup melted butter
1/2 cup white sugar
1 Tablespoon cinnamon
FOR THE GLAZE: (I made half of this recipe for my glaze, less is more to me on the icing for breads)
4 oz. cream cheese
1 cup powdered sugar
2 Tablespoons of cream or milk (I used skim milk)
1/2 Tablespoon vanilla extract
1/2 Tablespoon cinnamon
- Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Grease a loaf pan using cooking spray and set aside.
- Mix white sugar with Tablespoon of cinnamon. Divide dough into 2 inch pieces, stretch out into a 2-inch circle, fill with a few cinnamon chips. Press edges together to seal in cinnamon chips and roll into a ball. Roll each ball into melted butter, then into cinnamon sugar. Place each ball into prepared loaf pan. Take leftover butter and cinnamon-sugar mixture, combine together and pour over dough balls.
- Bake loaf in preheated oven for about 30 minutes, or until top of bread is starting to harden and the sides of the pan have a bubbly caramel. Let cool for about 10 minutes. Then flip onto serving dish.
- FOR ICING: beat cream cheese, vanilla, and powdered sugar in the bowl of an electric mixer. Slowly add in milk or cream. Mix in cinnamon. Add more milk as needed to make icing right consistency for drizzling. Pour icing over warm bread and enjoy!
