Cinnamon Pecan Pull Apart Bread Recipe Gluten Free

Frequently, I take pictures with my cell phone as I finish baking, just to make sure I capture the results before my family tears into it.

This one, of my Gluten Free Cinnamon Pecan Pull Apart Bread Recipe, went out on my Instagram feed, resulting in pleas for the recipe.

Cinnamon Pecan Pull Apart Bread-Gluten-Free

Cinnamon Roll Flavor without the work, and Gluten-Free? YES!

Instagram is a service that allows you to post pictures from your smartphone directly to Flickr, Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr and email. I use it to get my progress shot photos to storage. Then I can come back to write later. If you want to follow my Instagram stream, I’m listed under DrJeanLayton.

I’m so glad I took the picture when I did, this bread didn’t last long enough to get a better picture.

It isn’t that hard to make. I just beat up the soft bread dough, scoop up balls of the dough with a tiny ice cream scoop like this one, roll each ball in a mixture of cinnamon, sugar and chopped nuts then layer in a Bundt pan and dot with butter.

As my daughter, Katie, put it, “it’s a Cinnamon roll without the work”. Smart kid.
To keep my weekends a bit easier, I tend to make this up the night before I need it, then let it rise in the fridge.  I take it out of the fridge as soon as I get up and preheat the oven. By the time I've walked the dogs and the oven is ready, the dough is typically warmed enough to start to bake.

When you want all the tender buttery flavors of a cinnamon roll, but don't have the time to roll, layer and cut, try this recipe. Using a tiny ice cream scoop to form the pull apart balls makes this recipe one even a child can help to prepare. Vary the nuts, or add dried fruits for great flavor variations. A sprinkle of dried cherries and candied orange peel make the perfect holiday treat.

As you can see by the fussy measurements, I bake by weight. Especially for something like this gluten free Cinnamon Pecan Pull Apart Bread recipe, I want it to come out right every single time I make it.

Take the plunge, buy a scale.

Just the lack of measuring cups to wash will make up for the cost quickly.

And think of the time you save!
