Apple Pie Pull Apart Bread
Pull apart bread is a favorite in our house especially around the holidays. There are so many variations that you really can't go wrong. Last week we had an unexpected cool front in North Texas, so baking up a sweet treat was first on the agenda.
I settled on sweet bread and surprised my family with this easy Apple Pie Pull Apart Bread. This recipe has all the flavors of apple pie in a cinnamon bread form. This delicious bread starts with simple frozen Rhodes Dinner Rolls and a handful of ingredients.
Frozen bread dough is great for so many shortcut recipes and no one will ever guess it isn't homemade. This apple pie bread is great for a quick treat or paired with a savory breakfast casserole for overnight guests.
If time isn't on your side you can prepare this recipe the night before, place it in the refrigerator, and bake in the morning. Everyone will enjoy this ooey gooey apple cinnamon bread.
These are the ingredients you will need: 20 thawed, but cold Rhodes dinner rolls, one can apple pie filling, cinnamon, brown sugar, vanilla extract and butter.
Cut each roll in half and arrange 10 dough pieces on the bottom of a Bundt pan that has been sprayed with non stick spray.
In a separate bowl, mix the pie filling, brown sugar, cinnamon, vanilla extract and butter. Mix to combine. Add half of the apple mixture over the dough pieces, add the last 10 dough pieces on top, and add the remaining pie filling.
Spray a piece of plastic wrap with non stick spray and lightly cover the pan. Set in a warm place to rise until double in size (about 1 1/2 hours). Don't let it rise too much, because the rolls continue to rise as they bake.
Cook's Note: For more cinnamon flavor, mix 2 tablespoons cinnamon and 1/2 cup granulated sugar together in a large zip lock bag. Cut the rolls in half and place them in the cinnamon sugar and shake well making sure all pieces are covered, and then arrange in pan.
