Cinnamon Pull Apart Bread Heaven

I have seen quite a few recipes go across blogs on how to make this yumminess.  And my sister kept telling me I HAD to make it.  So I figured it would be a good time to alter it to fit the boys' allergies.  So here ya go...

(oh, if you want the non-allergy version, click here and for a different take click here)

Since I didn't take a ton of pictures (what's wrong with me?  LOL) it will give you some visuals of what it should look like!

To make this I used my basic bread recipe with a small twist ~ 1 tsp vanilla.  If you aren't familiar with it, here you go....

Using a large gallon Ziploc, assemble the following ingredients:

4 cups superfine  brown rice flour (Authentic  Foods)
2 cups tapioca flour (bob's red mill)
2 cups arrowroot flour (bob's red mill)
1/2 cup sugar (I use cane sugar from Trader Joe's)
8 tsp. Guar gum (don't skip this!)
1 1/3 cup DariFree milk substitute~ use in powdered form...(it is a powdered dairy free milk that is potato based)
3 tsp salt (I use sea salt)

Zip up baggie and shake until mixed.  Or mix in a mixer and then put in a bag.  I usually make 4-6 bags of this to have on my shelf.  Will keep one month.  This bag with make two batches

To make bread:
*Preheat oven to 400 degrees
*Heat one cup of water to 110 degrees, add 2 tsp sugar, 4 tsp yeast, and  let it sit 5 minutes
, ~meanwhile~
*Measure out 5 cups of mix from your Ziploc into mixing bowl/stand mixer
*1/4  cup Rice Bran (Ener G brand) (good for fiber, very healthy) 
AND/OR ¼ cup Flaxseed meal
*4 TBSP. oil (I use olive oil, coconut or safflower) or use your allergen free butter substitute of choice
*1 tsp apple cider vinegar (trader Joe's)
*1 cup water room temp
*3 eggs (or use egg replacer ~ 4tsp of the dry powder plus an extra 1/4 cup water)
Add in the yeast mixture and beat at medium  for 2-4 minutes.  Add water if too stiff.  If too thin add rice flour or more rice bran.  Should be thicker then cake batter but not as firm as regular bread dough. 

Grease hands really well, it is very sticky.  Keep some palm shortening close by so that as your hands get sticky you can grab some more. 

To rise the bread...Place bread on top of stove, cover with towel, let rise 30 minutes.  I drape the towel so that the heat vent from my stove blows under the towel and over my bread.  Or let it rise inside your microwave with hot water in a pan.

Cook in oven for 50-60 minutes for a loaf of bread.  For 4 mini loaves I cook mine for about 40 minutes.

The dough will need to be a bit stiffer.  Do not use eggs, use egg replacer instead.  Do not add the extra ¼ cup of water (unless too stiff).
*Dust pan with cinnamon
 *Melt 2 TBSP Earth Balance Soy Free butter in a bowl. 
*Mix 1 cup Turbinado sugar and 2 tsp. cinnamon in bowl
*Roll out ½ of the dough and use ½ of the melted butter to cover the rolled out bread.  Dust with ½ of the cinnamon sugar mix.  Using a cookie cutter, cut into 3 long strips.  Place strips on top of eachother.  Then cut into 1/4ths.   Place vertically in A bread loaf pan.  Repeat with other ½ of the dough.
*Let rise 20-30 minutes
*bake at 400 degrees for 50-60 minutes
