A picture is worth a 1000 words!! do I really need to say anything about this one?? No!! It’ll be short and SWEET!!!

This is Malgieri’s Cinnamon Raisin Breakfast Ring from Modern Baker and it is delicious. It is simply a giant cinnamon roll with a twist.

The twist is after filling the rolled dough with sugar/cinnamon and rolling it up the ends are brought around in a circle and joined to form a circle rather than just cutting the filled (pecans. raisins, sugar, butter) dough into individual cinnamon rolls. The rolled, filled dough is then sliced part way to the center about every 1 1/2″. The slices are then twisted up and spirals are formed all around the perimeter of the circle.

And it is huge. That little 10″ circle rose beautifully in the oven and gave me a wonderful cinnamon and pecan filled delight.

The cinnamon Ring is the result of a Rolling Twitterbake with Di and Kayte. Kayte started first. I joined in about an hour later followed by Di who did hers that night. By the time mine was baked Kayte’s had been devoured by her guys. Mine is half gone and I didn’t even have a chance to put the glaze on it first. Did get to glaze the last 1/2 of it. Even better!!
