BM #65 Week 1 Day 3 -
For the last day of these pull apart breads, here is the classic one. My folks at home don't like the glaze on top so I didn't pour the glaze on top. So what if the the bread looks not so gorgeous? With a sprinkle of extra cinnamon sugar the world looks beautiful :).
Wheat Flour 1 cup
All Purpose Flour 1/2 cup
Olive Oil 1 Tbsp
Warm Milk 1/2 cup + more
Sugar 1 tsp
Active Dry Yeast 1 1/2 tsp
Salt 1/2 tsp
Melted Butter 1 Tbsp
Sugar 1/4 cup + more for sprinkling while serving
Cinnamon Powder 2 tsp + more for sprinkling while serving
Method Of Preparation -
In 1/2 cup of warm milk, dissolve sugar and sprinkle yeast. Set aside in a warm place to activate the yeast.
In a stand mixer bowl or a mixing bowl, sift the flours and salt, add in the oil.
Add in the yeast solution to the flour and knead adding more warm water or warm milk as needed to form a soft and pliable dough.
Oil a bowl and roll the dough in the oiled bowl, cover and set aside until the dough is doubled [about 1 1/2 hours].
Dust a work surface with a little flour. Punch down the doubled dough and stretch and roll it into a square about 11 x 11 or 12 x 12.
Brush with butter all over the square dough surface. Sprinkle Cinnamon Sugar as needed all over.
Make about 2 inch strips of the square dough. I used a pizza cutter to do the job.
Layer each of the strips, one on top of another. Now slice the pile into 2-3 inch squares.
Place the slices, cut side down in a greased (I lined with parchment paper) loaf pan (I used a 10 x 5).
Cover and set aside in a warm place for a second rise. I left it for an hour. Brush the top with milk/butter.
Preheat the oven to 375 °F. Bake it in the center rack for about 35 minutes or until the top is golden brown.
Brush with melted butter (Optional), pull apart the slices and enjoy with more cinnamon sugar!
