The Best Sourdough Glazed Donuts

Sourdough Cinnamon Pull-Aparts

Twice a year I make these Cinnamon Pull Aparts for my family. They started out as a very different version that I have since adapted to make healthier!

These are my husband’s favorite breakfast “treat” besides french toast, and my kids gobble them up. I have been using my Challah recipe for the dough, but any sweet dough will work. The first time I adapted these using all honey, and the flavor was overpowering for me. I like this version much better.


  • Half of the dough from Sourdough Challah (make the other half into a Challah loaf, or double this recipe for a crowd)
  • Cinnamon
  • Organic cane sugar or brown sugar
  • Butter

For the sauce:

  • ⅓ c butter
  • ¼ c raw honey
  • ¼ c pure maple syrup 1 c coconut sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla

Step by Step Instructions

Step 1

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Step 2

After the long rise of the Challah dough (or dinner roll dough), take half and roll it into a large rectangle, about ¼” thick.

Step 3

Rub each side of the dough with butter and sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar this gets messy, but it’s worth it

Step 4

Using a pizza cutter or sharp knife, cut the dough into long strips and then squares. Random sizes work well here, they don’t have to be perfect

Step 5

In a medium sauce pan, heat the butter, honey, maple syrup, and coconut sugar over medium heat, stirring continuously

Step 6
When the sauce reaches a full boil, boil for 2-3 minutes over medium
heat, stirring constantly
Step 7

Remove from heat and add vanilla. Stir well

Step 8

Pour sauce into the bottom of a 9×13 metal baking pan

Step 9

Take the squares of dough and carefully place them on top of the cara- mel, layering them 2 layers deep, overlapping. Try to cover up the caramel and make it random so they aren’t stacked perfectly on top of each other

Step 10

Bake for 25 minutes or until the dough squares are golden brown around the edges

Step 11

While baking, line a cookie sheet with foil

Step 12

When the pull aparts are finished baking, invert the pan onto the cookie sheet
