How to: Apple Pie Bake

Each year as the weather grows colder, the pumpkin and apple craze tends to explode with tons of fall flavored recipes, but this year there’s only recipe you’re going to need. You’ve all heard of traditional apple pie, but this fall, I suggest you try an apple pie bake, a delicious spin on the fall staple we know and love.  Even I am usually not a fan of apple pie, this but dessert takes the cake. You can also top your portion with vanilla ice cream to contrast the hot bake with a cold creamy taste. This recipe serves about 5 people. I hope you enjoy and attempt to make it at home!


2 packs cinnamon roll dough with icing

4 eggs

½ cup milk

1 tablespoon cinnamon

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

2 tablespoons butter

2 granny smith apples, diced

1 cup brown sugar, packed

Vanilla ice cream


Preheat oven to 375°C.

Cut the cinnamon roll dough into 3 even strips, then cut those strip in 3 pieces, making 9 pieces total per cinnamon roll. Set aside the icing.

In a medium bowl, combine eggs, milk, cinnamon, and extract, stirring until smooth. Set aside.

In a pan over medium heat, combine butter, apples, and brown sugar, cooking until sugar starts to caramelize, about 10 minutes. Remove from heat.

Sprinkle the cinnamon roll dough pieces evenly in a 9×9 baking tray. Pour the egg mixture on top, followed by the apples. Drizzle the reserved icing on top.

Bake for 25–30 minutes, until golden brown. Serve with ice cream!
