Pumpkin Spice Pull-Apart Loaf is my recipe of the day with the Bread Bakers blogging group. We are doing “Tear and Share” recipes this month. I was going  to  do  something else until remembering I still had a can of Pumpkin Spice cinnamon  rolls in the  fridge I needed to use up. So I decided to  switch to  that.

Not that it’s a problem. This stuff gets inhaled.

It’s essentially a monkey bread albeit this is the smaller half-size version. We won’t eat the full Bundt pan of monkey bread in one sitting so I  downsized it and would rather make a fresh hot batch if I need another one.

This does use the Pumpkin Spice rolls which the can claims is “limited edition”. But I see they still have them in the stores. For how long is anyone’s guess, right? But no worries.

Switch hit to the regular Grands Cinnamon rolls if they disappear on you. These will still taste great and you can use either type. The pumpkin will still be in there.

Enjoy these for breakfast- the servings are supposed to be five but three people ate these, and they inhaled more than I did. If you have a tribe, double the batch and use the Bundt pan. Same baking time.
