Tuesday, January 22, 2019 | Exclusive


Using an oven-safe bowl and a little bit of foil, this savory pull-apart bread gets a morbid makeover and is served in the shape of a human brain! This is the dessert version – see the savoury recipe in RUE MORGUE issue #186 or watch it below on RUE MORGUE TV!

For the dough:

  • 1 Cup warm water
  • 3 Cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 3/4 teaspoons instant yeast
  • 1 1/2 Tablespoons sugar
  • 2 Tablespoons nonfat dry milk
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons olive oil

For the coating:

  • 1/2 Cup granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 cup brown sugar, firmly packed
  • 3/4 Cup salted butter


  1. Follow steps 1-4 of the Savory Brain Pull-apart Bread.


  2. In a large food storage bag, combine the granulated sugar and cinnamon. Place dough pieces in bag, and shake to coat. Arrange pieces in pan.


  3. In a small saucepan, melt butter and brown sugar; stir until sugar has dissolved. Pour over the dough pieces in the pan (you may not need all of the mixture).


  4. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Bake for 30 to 35 minutes, just until it begins to brown. Remove from the oven, and allow to cool for at least 15 minutes before inverting onto a serving platter.
