Get some fresh seasonal fruit flavours in your pull apart bread! Bursting with the summer flavours of red currants and vanilla butter, this gorgeous pull-apart loaf is a fabulous addition for any picnic hamper or the ideal solution for easy entertaining.
The best part about this recipe, is that you can use any other seasonal fruit if you can't find red currants. Strawberries, raspberries or plums are excellent substitutes. I am just topping this with a simple dust of powdered sugar, but if you want to attempt a more elevated and decadent topping, you could whip up a quick glaze with cream cheese, powdered sugar and vanilla.

  • 250 ml Whole milk, lukewarm 20 g Fresh yeast (or 10 g active dried yeast) 60 g White sugar 2 Medium eggs, room-temperature and lightly beaten
  • 60 g Butter, softened
  • 600 g Plain flour
  • A large pinch of salt
  • 120 g Butter, softened
  • 24 g Dr. Oetker Bourbon vanilla sugar (3 packs)
  • 300 g Red currants
  • Powdered sugar
  1. Combine milk, yeast and 1 teaspoons of sugar, stir and set aside at room temperature for 10 minutes, untill is gets foamy.
  2. In the bowl of your stand mixer, add in eggs (reserve 1 tablespoon for the topping), softened butter, remaining sugar, yeast mixture, flour and salt. Stir at slow speed for 5 minutes until the dough comes together. Increase the speed and knead until dough is smooth and elastic.
  3. Turn out the dough and shape into a ball. Lightly grease the mixing bowl with a little bit of oil. Return the dough ball into the bowl. Cover with a plastic wrap and let it proof at room temperature for about an hour or until it almost doubles its size.
  4. Grease and line a large loaf pan with parchment paper. Set aside. Mix the butter and vanilla sugar in a bowl until well combined. Rinse and pluck the currants off of the stems.
  5. Lightly flour a work surface and roll out the dough into a rectangle, roughly 50cmx35cm. Brush the rectangle with vanilla butter. Sprinkle the currants over.
  6. Cut the dough into 4 strips and each strip into 5 or 6 even pieces. Stack a few of pieces together and place into the prepared baking tin. Repeat with the rest. Depending on the length of your loaf pan you might even have a couple of pieces left. Simply roll them up into individual buns and place in muffin tins. Cover with a clean kitchen towel and leave to rest in a warm place for 30 minutes.
  7. Preheat the oven to 190C/375F. Brush the top with the reserved egg and bake in the middle of the hot oven for about 30 minutes until nicely golden brown. Remove from the oven let it cool in the pan for 10 minutes. Turn out and dust with powdered sugar.

What a beautiful looking bread! I've actually never baked with red currants, but I bet they are really good addition to this rich and delicate bread!

Christine 20/7/21 02:25

now I feel like dessert, yum.

...I love currants, I planted some this year and I hope to pick some next year.

David 20/7/21 02:58

Angie, I've had a couple different types of sweet pull apart bread over the years but never one made with currants. As a matter of fact I don't think I've eaten currants since I was about 12 years old at my grandmother's house. I did enjoy them...but I don't think I've seen them in any stores or even at a farmer's market. Take Care, Big Daddy Dave

Your presentation of this very decadent recipe is, as always, lovely!

Lots of sugar though, so this would definitely be a treat dish for me!

But hey! we all deserve a treat every now and then, although I might prefer mine with raspberries :)

Es la primera vez que veo un pan como este y tengo que decir que me ha encantado, pero sería un peligro tenerlo cerca, pues me lo comería entero. Es una delicia.

Eva Taylor 20/7/21 13:12

Red currents are such European fruit, reminds me of the summers we spent visiting family in Budapest. This pull apart bread is gorgeous.

Angie te comento que por aquí se ha puesto de moda la versión salada intercalando queso, jamón cocido, untando cada rodaja de pan con una mezcla de mantequilla y hierbas. Queda muy sabroso.
