Get ready for one of the most heavenly things to emerge from my oven in a while. The moment I saw this bread on Joy’s blog, I knew it wouldn’t be long before I would try it myself. I wiped the puddle of drool off of my keyboard and quickly put this on the menu for the coming week. There are so, so many things to love about this bread. Yeasted dough – check. Browned butter – check. Cinnamon sugar – double check. An entire loaf that is reminiscent of the center of a perfect cinnamon roll – check.
All of this, not to mention it is really fun to make. You can see the pictures below, but basically you brush a thin layer of dough with butter, cover in cinnamon sugar, cut into rectangles and stack them all together. I love the low maintenance approach and the resulting irregularity of the appearance. The layers pull apart, daring you to try and eat just one. I think this would be ideal to serve at a casual brunch with friends. I can just imagine everyone sitting around with lots of fresh fruit, yogurt, mimosas of course, pulling away piece after piece of this bread. So, to all my dear friends, any takers?
