Have you tried making pull-apart bread yet? I have a sweet and easy lemon pull-apart bread recipe I want to share today. Let me just say that I made the bread this afternoon and between me and my husband it was gone before dinner. We each would pass through the kitchen and pull a little piece off. It is way too good.
How to make lemon pull-apart bread
You all know, I am all about simple recipes so for this pull-apart bread I used canned biscuits. The Grands biscuits work well since they are large.
- Remove the biscuits from the can and then separate each individual biscuit into 2 layers.
- Dip each biscuit layer into melted butter and then a mixture of sugar, lemon zest and vanilla. Sounding amazing!
- I like to spray my loaf pan with cooking spray and also line with with a piece of parchment paper. This makes it so much easier to remove the bread before serving.
- Take each biscuit layer and place it on it’s side.
- Lean the first layer up against the side of the loaf pan and then continue placing layers beside each other until the loaf pan is full.
- Bake for 30-35 minutes and then cool for 5-10 minutes before removing from pan.
- Drizzle the bread with a lemon glaze before serving.
Tips for making pull apart bread
- To assemble, just lean the first biscuit layer up against you baking dish. This helps to hold it up and you can add layers on behind it.
- Before I start making the bread I separate all the biscuits into two layers. It’s easier to assemble when you have them all ready to go.
