This cinnamon pullapart loaf has been very popular in the blogosphere of late. I first spotted it on Heather's blog, and Natashya has also made it, but it went through a couple of pairs of hands before it got to them, originally it was from Joy the Baker. The one I made was Heather's version, with the ricotta. I think my stacking in the tin could
have been a little tidier!
Gorgeous flavour though. I think next time I make it I will prepare it the night before, keep it in the fridge and then bring it back to room temperature for baking fresh in the morning.
Which is what I did for this lovely coconut bubble bread from Mary at One Perfect Bite.
I made a double quantity of the coconut crumble and rolled each ball of dough in it, before packing them into the tin (my loaf tin is quite large, so this quantity made one loaf). Mary said that it made marvellous toast and she wasn't wrong - I actually think it was better toasted than eaten fresh. Although I did have to watch it like a hawk to make sure the coconut didn't burn.
Nigella's banana bread is another lovely breakfast treat. I used apricots soaked in sherry rather than sultanas in rum, and they gave a lovely little tangy punctuation to the sweet moist bread.
This bread keeps very well. It stayed moist and delicious for the week it took to eat it, so I never got to find out if it toasted well. I bet it would.
