This is a fancy bread demystifying post. Got some bread dough? Got scissors?

Ok, lets make fancy pants trickster bread.

For this first one, I had made up a cinnamon bun dough. Easy to do and recipe can be found here.

First up, on your tray roll up the dough. Β The cinnamon sugar butter mixture is rolled up within it. Now get your scissors and cut equal parts along. (Depending on what type of bread you are using, you might like to do it on baking paper so it’s easy to move around or to catch extra drippy bits like the sugar butter here).

With the scissors, cutting three quarters through the log, so the bottom is still attached.

Next, on one side cut through a little of the attached bottom. Alternate rolls, push to the side. And that’s it. Too easy right?

  1. OMG my kitchen garden kids would love this! Scissors on bread? That’s almost as much fun as using scissors to give the sprouts a haircut. But this looks much more delicious than sprouts! πŸ™‚


  2. Love little kitchen tips like these to impress the family with my baking. Thanks Brydie! Hey sugar and Cinnamon is a great reminder of ingredients to use when my pantry is a bit bare too.


  3. YUM!! I’ve never made a cinnamon bun. What kind of mother am I?! I know my boys would love it. And me too, with a nice cuppa. It looks perfectly delicious. Love the idea of using scissors – I imagine a knife wouldn’t be such a clean sweep and would squish the dough. Brydie what are the cute little circular white sprinkles on top? Couldn’t find them in the recipe, or are they a particular type of sugar?


    • pearl sugar Saskia. I think my one is a Donna Hay one, and I know the Essential Ingredient sells it too. It’s a European thing that crops up Scandinavian Cinnamon Buns, Belgian waffles, German biscuits…that sort of thing. Makes no difference to your recipe really, but hey it looks good πŸ™‚

  4. I have been checking out those “monkey bread” and “pull apart” loaves. They don’t look too hard to accomplish either and when I have 5 spare minutes to rub together I will have a go at your lovely fancy pants bread. Today I have to move 2 mountains of split wood to “somewhere else” so I might need a rest and a cup of tea after that but maybe on the weekend…


      • I should have a loaf party and make everyone their own batch of dough and get them all to go nuts and create the most wacky trickster bread that they can think of and blog about it…could be fun πŸ˜‰
