Soft buttery pull-apart Overnight Brioche Cinnamon Rolls that’s put together in the evening and allowed to rest overnight. Baking the next morning, guarantees you’ll have a warm and delicious breakfast!
Holly at A Baker’s House choose the December theme for the Bread Bakers challenge this month, which is “Overnight Breakfast Bread”. This excited me because I’ve been reading about the benefits of letting bread dough rest overnight in the refrigerator before baking. The bread doesn’t raise much overnight, but the flavors develop. Who wouldn’t want a delicious hot Brioche Cinnamon rolls with a smooth vanilla bean-cinnamon glaze, first thing in the morning?
I’ve never made a Brioche before. Wikipedia states Brioche is a pastry of French origin that is similar to a highly enriched bread, and whose high egg and butter content give it a rich and tender crumb.” I found the Brioche dough was a buttery soft dough similar to a warm sugar cookie dough.
The method to create the pull-apart is quick and simple. Simply take your kitchen shears and cut almost through the roll. I made about 1/2 inch cuts, but you could go thinner or thicker. Then just offset them, alternate pushing them forward and backward.
Put this beautiful roll in the middle of the table, and watch it disappear. Pulling rolls off allows you to have just as big a piece as you want. It’s a good thing that this recipe makes one gigantic roll, or as I did, two good sized rolls. Can you imagine getting this roll as a gift? This recipe is perfect for overnight guests too. Mix it up the day before and just plop it in the oven the next morning. Your guests will be amazed.
As amazing as this recipe is, there are a lot of great recipes from the Bread Bakers group. I hope you will stick around and take a look at their recipes too.
The #BreadBakers theme this month is Overnight Breakfast Breads. This includes yeasted breads that you prepare the night before then bake in the morning as well as quick breads that you prepare ahead of time then mix and bake in the morning. December is a busy time for celebrations and getting together with family and friends. It is always nice to think ahead and to make dishes ahead of time so that you– the baker– can enjoy the fruits (or breads!) of your
labor with your loved ones.
