A while ago I went shopping with a friend and ended up buying baking weights and a home made soft, chewy snickerdoodle in a household goods shop. The cookie was so delicious I wanted to try and make them myself. I searched online and found this recipe from Sally’s Baking Addiction.
I guess there’s no better time to bake something christmassy than the middle of August – no one expects it… I stumbled across this recipe in a (German) book that I bought a very long time ago called “Basic Baking“. I haven’t baked anything from it in years, because I’ve rarely been very happy with the results, but I thought I could give it another try.
This is a variation of a typical German “Honigkuchen” (Honey Cake), which is quite similar to a Gingerbread cake.
I made this cinnamon pull apart bread the last time my friend J. came to visit from Freiburg, we ate some of it fresh out of the oven and he took the rest with him for the train ride home. It’s sweet, it’s sticky and it’s incredibly delicious!
I adapted this recipe from lecker and used more or less half the ingredients. It was enough dough for a loaf pan that is approx. 10 inches / 25cm long.
Luckily it was a warm and sunny day – the dough had a good time on my window sill.
