About this recipe: This pull apart bread is traditionally made in the northern Italian city of Mantova for Mother's day. It's a sweet cake-like bread that rises to resemble a bouquet of roses.
Heat some apricot jam over low heat; mix with a little water to get a runny consistency. Brush on the top of the warm bread. Or mix equal quantities of water and rum and use a baking syringe to inject the liquid into the bread.
