Apple Pie Monkey Bread

Robin Lieneke


I decided to try this take on an old favorite and twist it up with a fall favorite to celebrate the slightly lowering temperatures. The result was better than I could have hoped. Perfect for breakfast on a cool autumn day.

How to Make Apple Pie Monkey Bread


  1. Sprinkle diced apples with brown sugar, 1/2 tsp. cinnamon, 1/2 tsp. apple pie spice and salt. Toss together until apples are evenly coated and microwave for 2 mins. on high. Stir and set aside
  2. Once the rolls are slightly thawed , cut each dinner roll into four pieces and toss with half of the butter and the remaining cinnamon and apple pie spice until evenly coated.
  3. Spray bundt pan with butter flavored no stick spray. Place one half of the apples in the bottom of the bundt pan. Then place one half of the pieces of roll and repeat the layers with the other half of the apples and then the other half of the rolls. Pour the remaining butter over the entire pan making sure some drizzles down the side.
  4. Cover the pan with plastic wrap that has been sprayed with no stick spray. Let set until dough has doubled in size or overnight. Bake at 375 degrees for 20 to 30 minutes until golden brown.
  5. To remove bread from pan, invert pan on your serving plate. Leave the pan in place for 5 to 10 minutes. Remove pan and spoon any apples remaining in the bottom of the pan onto the top of the bread to get every last drop of apple goodness. Drizzle with glaze while still warm.
  6. To make the Glaze: Mix all ingredients together. Start with 1 tbsp. of half-and-half and add more if glaze is still a little thick. You want it to be thick enough to slowly drizzle off of a spoon.
