There’s nothing quite like the smell of warm apple cinnamon bread baking in the oven. And, when you turn that bread into monkey bread or bread pudding, it’s even better. Today, I’m excited to share two delicious recipes that you won’t be able to resist.
First up, we have Apple Cinnamon Roll Monkey Bread. This recipe is perfect for a weekend brunch or as a sweet treat for the family. To start, you’ll need to preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Then, grab a can of cinnamon roll dough and cut each roll into four pieces. In a separate bowl, mix together some sugar, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Roll each cinnamon roll piece in the sugar mixture and then coat in melted butter.
Next, grab a bundt pan and begin layering the coated cinnamon roll pieces and cubed apples. Once you’ve got all the pieces in the pan, bake for 30-40 minutes or until the top is golden brown. Once it’s out of the oven, let it cool for a few minutes before flipping the pan over onto a plate so the monkey bread can come out. Serve with a drizzle of cream cheese frosting and enjoy!
Now, for the second recipe, we have Apple Cinnamon Roll Bread Pudding. This recipe is perfect for using up any leftover cinnamon rolls you may have from breakfast. To start, preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Then, cut your leftover cinnamon rolls into small cubes and place them into a greased 9×13 inch baking dish.
In a separate bowl, mix together some eggs, milk, sugar, cinnamon, and vanilla extract. Pour the mixture over the cinnamon roll cubes and let sit for a few minutes so the bread can absorb the liquid. Next, place thinly sliced apples on top of the bread pudding and sprinkle with more cinnamon.
Bake for 45-50 minutes or until the bread pudding is set and the top is golden brown. Once it’s out of the oven, let it cool for a few minutes before serving. This recipe is perfect on its own, but you can also serve with a scoop of vanilla ice cream for an extra special treat.
In conclusion, these two recipes are perfect for anyone looking to satisfy their sweet tooth with the comforting flavors of apple and cinnamon. Give them a try and let me know which one is your favorite!
