What if I can’t find King’s Hawaiian sweet rolls?

You can use any fully baked dinner rolls for this recipe. Many times you can find a large brand copycat Hawaiian sweet roll.

Can I add other ingredients to the filling for the pull apart bread?

You can definitely add other ingredients to the cinnamon sugar filling for the pull apart bread to give it your own twist. Some ideas could be chopped nuts, dried fruit, or even chocolate chips!

Can I freeze cinnamon roll pull-apart bread?

INGREDIENTS NEEDED TO MAKE CINNAMON ROLL PULL APART BREAD:

  • KING’S HAWAIIAN original sweet rolls
  • light brown sugar
  • salted butter
  • ground cinnamon
  • honey
  • powdered sugar
  • milk
  • vanilla extract
Hawaiian sweet rolls, brown sugar, powdered sugar, cinnamon, butter, vanilla extract and milk.

HOW TO MAKE CINNAMON ROLL PULL APART BREAD:

Preheat oven to 400F degrees. Spray an 11×7 baking dish with cooking spray. Unpackage the rolls and using a serrated knife, with the short side of the rolls facing you, make 3 vertical slices, one on the top of each roll, stopping about ½-inch from the bottom crust.

Repeat on the other side but 4 slices. We are forming a cross pattern on top of each roll.

Carefully place the cut rolls into the baking dish.

In a small saucepan over medium/low heat, combine brown sugar, butter and honey.

Stir constantly until everything is melted and combined (about 5 minutes.)

Remove from heat then stir in cinnamon.

Open each slice you made in the bread and spread on a couple of tablespoons of the glaze. Press the slices together to make sure the glaze gets distributed on each side of the slices. Do the vertical cuts first, then the horizontal.

Spread any remaining glaze over the bread. Bake for about 8-10 minutes.

While the bread is in the oven, start making the glaze. Whisk together powdered sugar, milk, and vanilla extract.

Once the bread is finished baking, you can remove it from the pan or serve it directly from the pan (be careful, it’s hot!). Spoon the glaze on the warm bread.
