Caramel Apple Cinnamon Rolls

So today I’m watching my friends kids for her while she is on a little vacation.  That means I have 9 kids running around here and I thought it would be a perfect opportunity to use them as guinea pigs.   So while I was making bread this morning I decided to turn my Apple Cinnamon Instant Oatmeal Bread into Caramel Apple Cinnamon Rolls.  


This is what I did.
First you’ll need some dough I used this recipe that I just made up today, but you could use whatever your favorite recipe is.
Roll the dough out like cinnamon rolls. (Incase you didn’t read the recipe the little chunks in the dough are dried apples)
017
Slather it with butter
021
Then I peeled 1.5 apples but I should have used 2.
018
Then I grated them
019
and added some cinnamon, sugar and cornstarch.
020
Then I sprinkled the grated apple over the dough and added a little bit more cinnamon and sugar over the top of it.  I would have preferred to use brown sugar but I was all out Sad smile  then I rolled it up.
024
I would have also like to sprinkle brown sugar in the bottom of the pan before I placed the cinnamon rolls down but because I didn’t have any I used caramel sauce instead, oh and a few chopped pecans.
025
in the other pan I made a crunchy crumb topping kind of like an Apple Betty and sprinkled that over the top.  
026
Then I let them rise for about 30 minutes and baked them at 350 degrees for about 28 min or until they felt done.  Make sure you oven rack is set below the middle of the oven!
Remove from oven and dump out on a plate.  ENJOY!!

These sound sooo good. I just started making cinnamon rolls this past year and have never fentured from just plain cinnamon rolls. Now that I have it figured out, it's time to start experimenting. These might be first on my list.

I would have eaten several of them. What a great change up on cinnamon rolls and so many yummy options. Your commentary is funny too! Joni

Jocelyn said...

Wowzers! Those look amazingly delicious!!! I have a feeling that i might need to try this recipe out!!! Pinning it right now so I can remember where it is:-)

Ali said...

Woo, those look delicious. Have you ever tried making brown sugar at home? I always forget to buy brown sugar so I keep a jar of molasses in the pantry and you just add a spoonful to about a cup or two of sugar and then stir it up for a min. or two. Easy and super fresh brown sugar anytime you need it. :)

I'd love for you to add this to the Hump Day Hoorah link party. I hope to see you there! :)
