Cinnamon Pull Apart Bread

Cinnamon Pull Apart Bread

3 cups flour (I used bread flour)
1 tsp cinnamon
2 tsp instant yeast
1 tsp salt
2 tbsp honey
2 tbsp oil
1/2 stick butter softened
1 cup sugar
2-3 tsp cinnamon
powdered sugar

Mix together the first 6 ingredients for the dough.  Knead just like you would for a loaf of white bread, about 8-10 minutes.  Form into a ball, oil and let sit in a covered bowl until doubled in size.

Punch down, and roll out on an oiled board, to a 10x15 inch rectangle. Spread with softened butter, then mix the remaining cinnamon and sugar together and sprinkle all over.

Using a sharp knife, or pizza cutter, cut into 2 x 10 inch strips.  Stack strips, then cut into 2 x 3 stacks or whatever size will fill up your bread pan.  Stand strips into your greased bread pan, try to pack it full enough so the strips don't fall over.  Or just stack them in, it doesn't matter, whatever way that will fill your bread pan works.  If you have any leftover cinnamon sugar, sprinkle on top.

Preheat your oven to 350, and let your cinnamon bread now risecovered for about 30 minutes.  Bake for 35-40 minutes.

Remove from oven and loosen sides, turn over onto platter.

Make a simple powdered sugar glaze, and drizzle over bread.
