Praline Pull-Apart Bread Recipe

This dessert breakfast is not for the faint of heart!  I served it to my family for Easter and it was such a treat!  You definitely won't find us eating this every day but if you're looking for a special dessert breakfast to serve to your guests, try this one!

prep time: 15 minutes
total time: 9 hours, 25 minutes
makes: 12 servings

1 cup granulated sugar
4 teaspoons ground cinnamon, divided
1 (2lb) package frozen bread roll dough
1/2 cup butter, melted
1 cup pecans, chopped
3/4 cup whipping cream
3/4 cup firmly packed brown sugar

1. In a shallow dish, stir together sugar and 3 teaspoons of cinnamon. Coat each roll in butter, then dredge rolls in sugar mixture. 

Arrange in a lightly greased 10-inch tube pan. Sprinkle with pecans. Cover and chill 8 to 18 hours.

2. Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Beat whipping cream at high speed with an electric mixer until soft peaks form; stir in brown sugar and remaining 1 teaspoon of cinnamon. Pour mixture over dough. Place pan on an aluminum foil-lined baking sheet.

3. Bake in preheated oven for 1 hour or until golden brown. Cool on a wire rack for 10 minutes. Invert onto a serving plate and drizzle with any remaining glaze from pan.
