I have partnered with Rhodes to create  Easy Pull-Apart Cinnamon Bread – a delicious treat that you can make at home even if you don’t know how to knead dough!  It starts with two loaves of Rhodes White Bread and a few ingredients that you probably already have at home.


Begin by thawing two loaves of Rhode’s Yeast Bread in the refrigerator overnight.

In the morning, place them on a lightly floured cutting board and visually divide the dough. For each loaf, mark the middle, then on each side of that mark the middles again – effectively making four sections.

Then with each of those sections, mark in halves.  At this point, you should now have 8 sections, but what you really want is sixteen slices.  For example, for each of the sections you see below, I cut two slices.  (It may seem confusing at first, but it gets much simpler.)

Next, spread a butter mixture on top of each slice and then top with cinnamon sugar.

Put the reassembled loaves into two loaf pans that have been lightly sprayed with nonstick spray.  (I typically have some cinnamon sugar left over, so I sprinkle it on top of the loaves.)

Next, place them in a warm place to let them rise until they have just about doubled in size. (My tip: heat your oven to about 150 degrees Fahrenheit and then turn it OFF. This creates a nice, warm environment for proofing dough.)

After they have risen, remove them from the oven and then preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Then place the loaves in the oven and bake for about 22-25 minutes.

They will start to develop a nice, golden top. At this point, it’s very important to carefully cover them with aluminum foil so that the tops won’t burn. The center of the loaves will take a little more time to bake.
