Michelle’s Recipe

Apple-Cinnamon Roll Monkey Bread

This was amazing! I just made it and I was worried it wouldn’t make it until the next day. My family devoured it. I think next time I would add more Apples since the recipe calls for one and I think it needed one more just to get more apple into the bread. If you are looking for a yummy breakfast treat or even an after dinner dessert this is perfect. I might even take it to Thanksgiving dinner as something different for dessert.

I original got this recipe from Pillsbury website but I made a few adjustments and plan to make a few more next time I make it.


2 cans (17.5 oz each) Pillsbury™ Grands!™ refrigerated cinnamon rolls
1 medium tart apple, peeled, chopped (I would recommend two)
1/4 cup sugar (original called for 1/2 cup but with brown sugar, I added less)
1/4 cup brown sugar (I added this)
1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1/4 cup butter, melted
Set Icing aside for when the bread is done.

Heat oven to 350°F. Grease 12-cup fluted tube cake pan with shortening or cooking spray.

Open cinnamon rolls, separate them and then cut into quarters.

Mix Sugar, Brown Sugar and Cinnamon, set aside

Cut and peel apples and chop into small pieces. Toss the apples with half the sugar mixture.

Place some apples at the bottom of the cake pan, then take the first can of cinnamon roll quarters and coat them in the remaining sugar mixture. placing them on top of the apples, layer more apples and use the rest of the cinnamon roll quarters. You can set this up pretty much how you want. I would suggest just do a little at a time and layer so the apple is throughout the bread. What you want to make sure is that the bread sort of sticks together.

Bake 40 to 45 minutes or until golden brown across top. Cool 10 minutes; run knife around edge of pan to loosen. Place heatproof serving plate over pan and turn over; remove pan. Cool 10 minutes longer.

Drizzle reserved icing over top of bread, allowing some to drizzle down sides. Pull apart to serve; serve warm. Enjoy! It won’t last long.

If you have leftover….It can be heated up and eaten the next day. I would recommend putting in refrig! IF you have leftover.

What is your favorite recipe for the fall?

Thanks for stopping by and Have a Spooky Saturday
