Have a good Sunday !

Sunday Recipe
Pull-apart bread.

The pull-apart bread is, for me, one of the most friendly meal you can serve on a sunday morning table:

What can beat a warm savory, soft and tasty pre-cut bread that every one can pick up a slice of ?

Then arrive the most difficult part: choosing between mapple sirup (my fav'), honey, wiped cream, chocolate spread or fresh fruits to serve with it.

pull-apart bread:
450 gr flour
50 gr sugar
2 sachets instant yeast 
1/2 tbs fleur de sel
35 gr butter 
155 gr milk
55 gr water
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 large eggs

35 butter
128 gr caster sugar
2 tbs cinnamon
1 tsp grated nutmeg

* Mix the flour, sugar and salt.
* Combine milk and butter in a small saucepan and heat until the butter is melted.
* Set aside and add the instant yeast, mix quickly to combine and wait 5 minutes or until foamy.
* Add the milk mixture, water, vanilla extract and eggs to the flour mixture and mix until getting a smooth ball of dough.
* On a well-floured area knead your dough adding 1 tbs flour at time until it gets elastic, tacky but not sticky.
* Transfer the dough into a bowl, cover, and let rise in a warm place until double in bulk (takes 1 hour).
* Meanwhile, heat in a small saucepan the butter until melted. Mix the caster sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg to combine.
* Transfer the dough on a lightly floured surface and roll it out into an approximately 20 x 12 inch rectangle.
* Brush the dough with the melted butter and spread the sugar mixture all over.
* Cut the dough into 6 stripes, stack them on top of each other and cut again into 6 equals slices.

* Place them into a loaf pan filled with baking paper, cover and let rise while pre-heating your oven on 175° Celsius.
* Bake for 20-25 minutes and let cool a bit before eating (well, if you manage to...).
