Happy Monday friends! I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving weekend. We had a great family meal at the in-laws and I think I am still full from all the festivities, pies and homemade marshmallows. I decided to walk it off the next day at the mall but it was a bad idea. Was too much of a mess even at 4pm when I made it out. Oh well! Thank goodness I had this cinnamon raisin pull-apart bread waiting for me at home.
As the holiday season creeps even closer, the amounts of sweets we are consuming is on sky high!! I mean, ’tis the season! But from time to time, we need to cut down on the sugar which is why I love using natural sweeteners. Whether it’s a little maple syrup to sweeten some muffins or raisins to sweeten this cinnamon raisin pull apart bread, there are some great alternatives when you’ve had your fill of sugar this holiday season.
Did you know you could use raisins to naturally sweeten your treats? I know we all love to throw them on our salads or into oatmeal but they are an all-natural, dried-by-the-sun fruit you can feel good about using to sweeten your baked goods – especially during the holidays. When California Raisins asked me to come up with a naturally sweetened holiday recipe, I thought to myself, this is a great time to try out something new and reduce the sugar in it.
I’ve always seen pull-apart breads but never thought of trying them since I had chronic yeast-phobia. But now that I am so over it (YEAST is not the devil!!), I figured I should try this delicious looking bread that offers so much capacity for filling diversity!
This cinnamon raisin pull-apart bread is a classic and nothing beats classics. Starting with soft and perfect dough, it is lined with brown butter, brown sugar, cinnamon, raisins and some walnuts. Right? All things you want to have together!! Folded and joined together in harmony. Sweet harmony of great things and a breakfast favorite with coffee.
