I have a confession to make. I have a love affair with anything lemon. Cakes, pies, drinks, you name it. I came across this recipe for Lemon Pull Apart Bread on Pinterest. Of course, I knew I had to try it.
The recipe has only 5 ingredients and only a few simple steps. It also uses frozen bread dough which is perfect for me since I’m not much of a bread baker. Frankly, yeast kind of scares me.
I made this recipe over the weekend and it was delicious! It was a nice light dessert and it was even great for breakfast the next morning. I loved the bright, tart flavor. I think this will be perfect for Easter or Mother’s Day brunch!
