Amazing Apple Fritter Bread

Since I discovered my love of apple fritters, I’ve decided I want to make all the apple fritters. Now I’m adding Apple Fritter Bread to my collection! And it’s an EASY bread recipe; only a few ingredients needed!

This Apple Fritter Bread is a pull-apart bread made with cinnamon rolls! You can make pull apart bread from scratch or you can make it easy using canned biscuits or cinnamon rolls.

Ingredients in Apple Fritter Bread

  • Refrigerated Cinnamon Rolls: I made this recipe with cinnamon rolls instead of biscuits!
  • Apples: Any kind you’d like – I used Granny Smith but use your favorite.
  • Brown Sugar: To sweeten the apples along with cinnamon.

How to make Apple Bread

  • Place apples and water in a microwave safe bowl. Cook 2-3 minutes on high, or until the apples have softened slightly. Drain very well.
  • Open the tube of cinnamon rolls. Set aside frosting for later. Cut each roll in half horizontally.
  • Stir brown sugar and cinnamon into the apples.
  • To assemble the bread: place one slice of cinnamon roll on flat surface. Top with some of the apple mixture. Top with another cinnamon roll slice. Continue until all slices and apples are used. Carefully place in prepared pan.
  • Bake 30-40 minutes, or until cinnamon rolls are browned and bread is cooked through. Cool slightly then pour frosting over the top.
  • Store in an airtight container for up to 2 days.

Expert Tips

  • You need to spray the pan with non-stick cooking spray.
  • Use the frosting that came with the cinnamon rolls to glaze the bread!
  • If you want to use Grands Cinnamon Rolls you can, just use 1 package and cut each roll into 3 pieces instead of two. 

FAQs

Why cook the apples?

I simply cook the apples in a bowl in the microwave for just a few minutes. You just want them to soften a bit so they finish cooking in the bread, and so there isn’t as much moisture.

How do you make pull-apart bread?

You start cinnamon rolls. I used Pillsbury, the basic 8-count (not Grands). Cut each in half horizontally, like you’re cutting a roll for a sandwich.
