Cinnamon Pull Apart Loaf is one of those very easy recipes that gives you great results. And don’t we love that. This is the first Pull Apart Loaf I’ve ever made, thankfully it was made very easy by using a tube of refrigerated biscuits.
All you need to make this loaf is an eight inch loaf pan, melted butter, a cinnamon/ sugar mixture and a tube of biscuits. I decided to add my own touch to the recipe and used some grated orange zest and pecans to the loaf. I topped it with a simple powdered sugar glaze.
After opening the tube of biscuits, separate them into 8 individual biscuits. Cut each biscuit into 6 pieces. Dip each piece into the melted butter then roll into the cinnamon/sugar mixture. Arrange them in a greased 8 inch loaf pan. Please don’t use a dark pan to make the loaf, they always bake quicker because of the dark color which might make your biscuits cook sooner and burn. I threw away all my dark pans a few years ago and only use aluminum now. I sprinkled the zest and chopped pecans over the biscuits and baked them at 350 degrees for about 25 minutes.
They looked so good after they were baked! And I just love the aroma of cinnamon baking. I let the biscuits cool a couple minutes then ran a knife around the edges to loosen them. I flipped them onto a platter and drizzled the glaze over top.
Warm biscuits with cinnamon/sugar, orange zest and pecans…these were so easy and good! Enjoy!
