Large families have the most fun! At least, that was the case with regards to my family during the holidays. Each holiday, my grandmother would have all the grandchildren come into the kitchen and participate in creating a dessert for us to bake and partake of after eating our full course dinner. The dessert that I remember the most is called “Pull Away Bread."
One Christmas day, we each circled the kitchen table and received our instructions to grab a rectangular piece of the dough, base it in butter, cinnamon, and sugar, then roll it up and put it in the pan one piece at a time. Laughter filled the kitchen as we created a baked masterpiece. When it came out of the oven, we drizzled honey over it and pulled the pieces from it, eating every morsel of deliciousness until the last drop of bread was gone. Listed below is the recipe for Minnie Rice’s Pull Away Bread. Your children will love the taste and embark on one of the most joyous family time experiences of their lives.
Pull Away Bread Recipe
1 package of dough
2 sticks of margarine
1 cup of sugar
3 table spoons of sugar
˝ a cup of honey
Pre-heat the oven to 375.
Grease a cake pan and sprinkle flour all around the base and edges of the pan (to ensure that the dough doesn’t stick to the pan).
Roll out your dough, then cut it into rectangular strips (the shape of a ruler).
Mix the cinnamon and sugar together in a bowl.
Melt the two sticks of margarine in a bowl.
Sprinkle the cinnamon and sugar on the strips; then roll the strips into a ball.
Dip the ball into the melted margarine; then dip the ball into the cinnamon/sugar mixture, then place the ball of dough into the cake pan.
Repeat this process until you have filled your cake pan.
Once the cake pan is filled, place it in the open and let it bake for about 20-30 minutes or until you are able to place a toothpick of fork into the cake and no dough remains on the fork or tooth pick when you pull it out of the cake.
Let it cool for 10 minutes; then take the pull away bread out of the cake pan and drizzle honey over the top of it, then serve it.
