It's apple week and I'm loving all things fall and apple! Apples are one of those ingredients that I buy almost weekly at my local market because we like to munch on them as a snack, cut them up and have them with yogurt for breakfast, and I like to bake with them. There are so many different varieties of apples that it's hard to choose a favorite!
Rainier Fruit Company sent me a box of delicious Organic Honeycrisp Apples and we couldn't get enough of them! They are mostly sweet but had a hint of tartness to them. This makes them great for snack and even better for baking.
Now I've been a little short on time so while I wanted to bake something I knew it was going to have to be something that I could make quickly. I found a recipe for Caramel Apple Pull Apart Bread that uses refrigerated biscuit dough and since I had a can in the refrigerator I decided to give it a go. It requires very few ingredients and took me about 15 minutes to put together.
I was a little worried when I put the dough in the bread pan because it didn't go all the way across the pan. I had a good inch and a half to 2 inches without any bread in it. I just pushed all the dough to one side and to the top and hoped it would work out.
As it turns out the Caramel Apple Pull Apart Bread grew in the oven and filled up the pan. It smelled delicious as it was baking. I could smell the cinnamon, apples, and the scent of the bread. When I pulled it out it was golden brown and looked so good.
One word of advice, let it cool 5-10 minutes in the pan and then get it out of there! I waited around 30 minutes and the sugar mixture had caramelized and stuck to the bottom of the pan and I had a hard time getting the bread out of the pan. It would have been much easier to do it while it was warm.
The bread was amazing! It was so easy to just grab a piece as we walked past it in the kitchen as a snack. The bread was soft, the apples were sweet and spiced, and the caramel sauce on top just added a bit of sweet flavor that went perfectly. This is a great recipe to make a share with friends or family!
- 1 tube refrigerator biscuits (10 biscuits)
- 3 T. melted butter
- ¼ c. brown sugar
- ¼ c. sugar
- 1 t. cinnamon
- ½ t. nutmeg
- 1 t. sea salt
- 2 Organic Honeycrisp apples (I used apples from Rainier Fruit Company), finely chopped
- Caramel sauce
- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Spray a loaf pan with cooking spray.
- Cut the biscuits in half (through the layers) and set on a cutting board.
- In a small bowl combine the brown sugar, sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, and sea salt.
- Dip each biscuit into the sugar mixture and place on the cutting board. Sprinkle with chopped apples and top with another sugar coated biscuit. Repeat this until you have 4 stacks of biscuits stuffed with apples (you will have 5 biscuits in each stack).
- Stack 2 stacks on top of each other and turn the biscuits on their side and place in the pan. It will not fill up the pan.
- Push all four stacks together to one side of the pan and to the top of the pan.
- Bake for 35-40 minutes or until the biscuits are golden brown.
- Remove from oven and cool 10 minutes. Remove bread to a plate and drizzle with caramel sauce.
- Pull apart and enjoy!
