Tasty Tuesday: Cinnamon Pull Aparts

Hello there, and happy Tuesday! It’s great to be back to blogging after a bit of a break. After the holidays, I got to work prepping for Kamp Kappa Delta, and now that the Kamp is over, I am excited to return to blogging.

Kamp Kappa Delta is a weekend leadership retreat I cohost with the women I volunteer with to support the Kappa Delta chapter at Washington State University. This week, I’ll be sharing the details of the weekend.

First up, I’m sharing the recipe for the cinnamon pull apart bread we served for breakfast.Β This recipe is something that I’ve been making for years. I first learned how to make it from my grandmother when I was little, and it is now a staple in my recipe repertoire. Because I’ve been making it for so long, I don’t have an exact recipe, so I’ve captured what I do know πŸ™‚

Here’s what you need to recreate this treat for yourself:

  • bag of frozen dinner rolls
  • sugar
  • cinnamon
  • brown sugar
  • butter
  • cooking spray
  • bundt pan

First up, thaw the bread dough slightly (either on the counter or in the microwave). I thaw it so it’s not totally soft, and so that the bread can be cut but still holds its shape. Once thawed, use kitchen scissors to cut each roll in half.

Next up, melt the butter in one bowl. In a second bowl, combine sugar and cinnamon. I stir together a combination of the two until I get a sandy color.

Spray the bundt pan with cooking spray. Take about a handful of brown sugar and sprinkle into the bottom of the bundt pan.

Then, assembly line style, dip each roll piece first into the butter, then in the cinnamon sugar mixture, then place into the bundt pan.

Once you have a full layer of pull aparts, add another sprinkling of brown sugar, then start a second layer.

After you’ve placed all the rolls, if there is leftover butter, pour it over the pull aparts in the bundt pan.

Cover the bundt pan and let the pull aparts rise for at least 8 hours. I usually put everything together at night, then bake it the next morning for breakfast!


When you’re ready to bake, preheat the oven to 350Β°, and once it’s ready, bake the pull aparts for about 30 to 35 minutes.

Bake until the rolls are golden brown on top, then remove from the oven and let rest for about 5 to 10 minutes.

Once they’re rested, flip the bundt pan over onto your serving platter. Make sure your serving platter has a lip on it, so it catches any running cinnamon syrup!

Serve and enjoy!!
