Lemon Almond Pull-Apart Bread

Lemon Almond Pull Apart BreadImagine melt-in-your-mouth lemon sugar sandwiched between layers of soft, flaky biscuits. Then imagine it drizzled with lemon icing for a sweet finishing touch. Doesn’t that sound amazing? Well it is!

LemonPullApartBread3To give you an idea of how delicious this really is, I made a loaf this weekend and it was nearly gone in 24 hours. It’s so easy to grab a slice on the way through the kitchen that it practically grew legs and walked away!


This gorgeous loaf of lemon and almond bread is the perfect sunshiny treat for a hot, summer day. Enjoy!

Lemon Almond Pull-Apart Bread

  • Servings: 16
  • Time: Prep Time 15 minutes; Bake Time 40-45 minutes
  • Print


  • 1 can (16.3 oz.) Pillsbury Grands flaky layers original refrigerated biscuits (8 biscuits)
  • 3 tablespoons grated lemon zest (from 2-3 lemons)
  • 6 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 2 tablespoons butter, softened
  • 1 (2 oz.) package sliced almonds, toasted, divided
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 tablespoon butter, melted
  • 2-3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice



  1. Heat oven to 350°F. Spray 9×5-inch loaf pan with cooking spray.
  2. For lemon sugar, in a small bowl, combine lemon zest and granulated sugar; set aside.
  3. Separate dough into 8 biscuits. Separate each biscuit into 2 layers, to make total of 16 thin biscuits.
  4. To assemble loaf, brush some of the softened butter onto each biscuit. Sprinkle about 2 teaspoons lemon sugar and about 1 tablespoon almonds on top of each biscuit.
  5. Stack biscuits in 4 piles of 4 biscuits each. Place stacks on their sides in a row in the loaf pan, making sure sides without filling are on both ends touching the pan. It should look like a 16-layer sandwich with no filling on the outside ends.
  6. Bake 40-45 minutes or until loaf is deep golden brown and center is baked through.
  7. Cool loaf in the pan for 10-15 minutes. If necessary, run knife around edges to loosen loaf from pan. Carefully turn pan upside down on serving platter to release loaf.
  8. While bread is cooling, in a small bowl, combine powdered sugar and melted butter. Add enough lemon juice to create an icing consistency. Spread icing on top of loaf. Sprinkle with remaining almonds.
