2 cans (17.5 oz each) Pillsbury refrigerated cinnamon rolls
1 medium apple, peeled, chopped
1/2 cup sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1/4 cup butter, melted

See my Darlene’s Concoctions videos!


1:  Heat oven to 350°F. Grease 12-cup fluted tube cake pan with shortening or cooking spray.

2:  Separate each can of dough into 5 rolls and cut each roll into quarters.  Set icing aside.

3:  Place the chopped apple in small bowl. In another small bowl, mix sugar and cinnamon. Add 1/4 cup sugar mixture to apple and toss to coat.

4:  Sprinkle half of apple pieces in pan. Roll half of dough pieces in sugar mixture and place on top of the apples in pan.

4:  Sprinkle with remaining apple pieces. Roll remaining dough pieces in sugar mixture and place on apples. Pour melted butter over top.

5:  Bake 40 to 45 minutes or until golden brown across top. Cool 10 minutes then run knife around edge of pan to loosen. Place heatproof serving plate over pan and turn over to remove pan. Cool 10 minutes longer.

6:  Drizzle reserved icing over top of bread, allowing some to drizzle down sides. Pull apart to serve. Best to serve when still warm.

Darlene’s Tips: You could use brown sugar if you want. You could also try this with other fresh fruit like pears or peaches.  To make extra icing, simply mix powdered sugar with water or milk, a few drops at a time, until you get your desired consistency.
