Vanilla Orange Pull Apart Bread from Table for Seven

Hello and happy Wednesday! I’ve made you some bread today!

Ooey, gooey, pull apart bread that is drench in a vanilla-orange glaze.

It’s dee-li-cous..

We start with a 1 pound loaf of frozen bread dough. I used Rhodes. You don’t have to use this particular brand.  It is the brand I used, however, use whatever brand you prefer. Just be sure it’s  “thaw and rise” dough.

Thaw out your dough completely and roll it flat.  Cut off your rounded corners and make your dough into one long rectangle. Then, brush with your melted butter and sprinkle orange zest /sugar mixture on top. Then,you are going to cut the dough into smaller rectangles and stack them in your baking pan.

Cover your bread and let it rise for about an hour or so. You want it to double in size.

When ready, pour some of the oh-so-delicious glaze on top.

Bake your bread and let it cool, then, drench it with more glaze.

Finally, stuff your face with it.

This Vanilla Orange Pull Apart Bread is a sticky-sweet delight. Filled with orange and vanilla flavoring, it’s definitely a sweet treat for a special brunch or dessert.

Mmmmm..maybe for the holidays? 😉

Prep Time 1 hour 30 minutes
Cook Time 40 minutes
Total Time 2 hours 10 minutes


  • 1 lb loaf, frozen white bread dough ( ex Rhodes), thawed
  • 2 TBSP melted butter
  • zest of 1 orange
  • 2 TBSP white sugar


  • 1/2 cup ( 1 stick)
  • 1 TBSP vanilla
  • 1 TBSP orange juice
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar


  1. On a floured surface, roll bread dough until flat. Approx 8-10 inches long.
  2. If needed, cut corners to make a long, flat, rectangle.
  3. In a bowl, combine sugar and orange zest. Set aside.
  4. Brush melted butter on top of flatten bread dough. Then, sprinkle orange zest/sugar mixture on top of melted butter.
  5. Cut dough ( I used a pizza cutter) into smaller rectangles. You should get approx 12-15 smaller rectangles.
  6. Stack dough pieces in a 9 inch greased loaf pan,vertically. If any sugar/organge zest mixture falls, just sprinkle on top of the dough.
  7. Cover and place in a warm place to dough to rise. You want the dough to double in size. This should take 1-2 hours


  1. In a saucepan, melt butter and brown sugar until sugar is dissolved. Remove from heat and stir in vanilla and orange juice.
  2. Pour half the mixture on top of risen bread dough.
  3. Bake in a preheated 350 degree oven for 35-40 minutes. Check bread after baking for 15-20 minutes, if edges are getting too brown, tent bread lightly with foil, to prevent burning.
  4. Let bread for 15-20 minutes before removing from pan.
  5. Remove from pan and drizzle remaining glaze on top.
  6. Let bread sit an additional 30 minutes before serving.
