These Raspberry Pull-Apart Buns are shaped like a flower, and have just as many calories! Just kidding, who eats flowers, gross. But it’s a really delicious breakfast option for Mother’s Day! The coconut glaze totally makes it!
We recently bought a fridge that has a water dispenser on the front, and it’s awesome, but I keep overflowing my cups and getting water all over the floor. Like, really, Karen? You can’t even bother keeping an eye on your glass to make sure it doesn’t overflow? I’m always trying to multitask in the kitchen but this one backfired on me.
I think it has a lot to do with my pitiful attention span. You expect me to watch a cup fill with water for 15 WHOLE SECONDS?? (I should time it. I bet it’s not even that long.) Another contributing factor is that lately I keep grabbing half-pint mason jars from the cupboard when I get thirsty. They’re just so cute and tiny. (Heeere’s your sign Karen.)
Do NOT use a tiny half-pint mason jar for the glass you need as a place-holder when shaping this bread. Go for a normal sized glass. Wait, come back, don’t be intimidated! This bread is not hard, I promise. It does take some time, but any decent bun recipe does. And this one is so pretty!
Have you ever made a sweet bread recipe where you use a cup in the middle like the photo up there? I first heard of it a few Christmases ago when my mother-in-law Kris decided to make star bread like this one for Christmas morning. She baked it, then set it on a serving dish and stuck it in the (turned off) oven to keep warm. But I guess it was still too hot, because the glass shattered, ruining the bread as well as the Easy Breakfast Casserole with Potatoes and Ham that was being kept warm on the rack below. Ah, memories!!
The bread is pretty enough by itself, but then after it’s baked you poke little holes in it, fill them with coconut-flavored raspberry jam, and then drizzle it with coconut glaze. It is so fun and perfect for spring!
The drizzle is made with So Delicious Coconutmilk Coffee Creamer, who I’m partnering with for today’s post. I don’t drink coffee, but anyone who thinks coffee creamer is just for coffee is misinformed. At my first Real Job as an administrative assistant, there was free coffee and hot chocolate packets in the break room. All the time. To a recently starving student, this was like a jackpot of free sugary drinks. I used to add tons of those tiny creamer packets to make my hot chocolate next level.
I used the French Vanilla flavor for the glaze. So good! I could drink the stuff. I found it at Target. They have an awesome deal going now through May 6 — if you use the Cartwheel app at Target, (I love the Cartwheel app!!) you can save 15% on So Delicious creamers, as well as Silk creamers. Woohoo!
Happy Mother’s Day to all you awesome moms out there!
