Today I am a guest blogger on Southern Plate. These overnight pull aparts are what I make every Christmas morning. It is ridiculously easy and you will impress everyone. Here’s a peak of the finished product. For those of you in Utah, you may recall seeing this recipe a few years ago on Good Things Utah. Yep, it was my recipe that they did on the show.
On Christmas day, we have lunch at my parents house and dinner at my mother-in-laws house, so we just need a little something to get us going in the morning. I have adapted this recipe from several different other recipes that I have. It’s perfect because I put it together the night before. Then, when I get up in the morning it’s already to put in the oven while we open presents. I serve it with a glass of milk, juice, or hot chocolate. This would also be a wonderful addition to any brunch. I have also included instructions on how to make a cinnamon variation.
This is what it looks like the night before. Just cover with sprayed plastic wrap and tuck it into your COLD oven before you head off to bed.
In the morning, this is what you’ll find waiting for you.
Take the plastic wrap off and preheat your oven. When the oven is heated, just pop this baby in the oven. Check during the last 5 minutes. If the top is getting too brown, just lay a piece of foil on top.
When it’s done cooking immediately invert it onto a plate or serving dish. Isn’t it beautiful? Now, let it cool just a bit before you put the icing on or the icing will all end up on the plate and not on you pull-aparts. After icing, you’re done! Time to enjoy! I just use a serrated knife and cut it into slices. Christmas breakfast has never been so easy!
