Ingredients

Dough

  • 3 cups (375g) all-purpose flour
  • ¼ cup (50g) granulated sugar
  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt
  • 2 ¼ teaspoons (1 packet) instant yeast
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
  • cup lukewarm milk
  • ¼ cup lukewarm water
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 large eggs, room temperature

Filling

  • 2 ripe bananas, divided (1 mashed, 1 sliced)
  • ½ cup (100g) brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • ¼ cup (1/2 stick or 57g) butter, melted

Topping

  • caramel sauce, for drizzling on warm bread

Instructions

Dough

  • In the bowl of a stand mixer with the dough hook attachment, mix together the flour, sugar, salt, and yeast.
  • With the mixer on low, slowly add butter, milk, water, vanilla, and then eggs. Turn the mixer on medium-low and knead until the dough is soft and smooth (about 2 minutes). If it seems too dry add a little water, if it seems too sticky add just a little flour, up to a 1/4 cup.
  • Place the dough in a lightly greased bowl, cover, and allow to rest until doubled in size, about 1 hour.
  • Gently deflate the dough and turn it out onto a lightly floured surface.
  • Roll the dough into a 12" x 20" rectangle.

Filling

  • In a medium bowl, combine the mashed banana, brown sugar, cinnamon, and melted butter.
  • Spread the mixture over the entire surface of the dough.
  • Top with the slices of the second banana.

Assembling and Baking Pull-Apart Bread

  • Grease a 5x8-inch loaf pan.
  • Cut the dough crosswise into six 3 1/2" x 12" strips.
  • Stack the strips on top of one another.
  • Cut the stack into six pieces, about 2" x 3 1/2" each.
  • Turn the pieces on edge, and place them in the loaf pan one in front of the other from one end of the pan to the other, squeezing them in tight.
  • Cover the pan and allow the loaf to rise for 30 to 60 minutes until it's almost doubled in size. While the loaf is rising, preheat the oven to 350°F.
  • Bake the loaf for 45 to 55 minutes in the center of the oven, tenting it with foil after 30 minutes. Remove the loaf from the oven, and transfer it to a rack to cool for 15 to 20 minutes before turning it out of the pan to cool completely.
  • Drizzle caramel over warm bread and serve.
