Apple Cinnamon Roll Coffee Cake is made for apple lovers. The apple cream cheese icing makes it crazy good.
I love cooking with apples and I never get tired of trying new ideas so Fall means lots of apple recipes at our house. They are not all desserts either. Apples are always good when paired with pork for a savory dish.
More Recipes Made With Apples
These Caramel Iced Apple Cinnamon Rolls are a recipe cheat and lip smacking delicious. My grandson said these were the best cinnamon rolls he ever ate.
Our Apple Stuffed Pork Loin is also paired with cabbage for a delicious Fall meal we all love. It’s hearty and stick-to-the-ribs delicious.
These Apple Pork Chops are prepared in the Crockpot and glazed with maple syrup. This recipe is only three ingredients for an easy Fall recipe using fresh apples.
I very much enjoy cooking with Crescent rolls especially to create a Fall dessert. I call this recipe Crescent Apple Cinnamon Rolls and there is caramel drizzle involved. The apples are fresh so trust me, it’s crazy good.
You can make a yummy Fall dessert using canned biscuits and fresh apples too. See how I made this one called Upside Down Skillet Caramelized Apple Pecan Biscuits. These are gone in one sitting with a few folks to share them with.
Another yummy Crescent roll plus apples paired together for a lip-smacking delicious Fall dessert. Pecan Apple Raisin Crescents. You cannot eat just one.
These Homemade Crescent Apple Turnovers are a family favorite. I think my hubby looks forward to these during apple season more than anything else.
Ingredients for Apple Cinnamon Roll Coffee Cake
- Two 8 count cans of packaged cinnamon rolls, the biscuit type
- 1 Large apple, I used Pink Lady
- Chopped Pecans
- Unsalted Butter
- Confectioners Sugar
- Cream Cheese
Cooking The Apples
Peel, core and chop one large apple. I chopped my apple pieces sort of large.
Instead of chopping my pecans in the food chopper, I broke them by hand dropping them straight into the skillet.
One Tablespoon of unsalted butter is plenty to give a yummy flavor to your apple pecan mixture which is actually going to become the bottom of our Apple Cinnamon Roll Coffee Cake.
Add the lid to the skillet during cooking time and stir often.
Spread the cooked apple pecan mixture into the bottom of a sprayed 9″ round cake pan. I know it doesn’t seem like that is really a whole lot of goodies in the pan but you can see in the the next picture how it translates onto the bottom of the coffee cake.
Baking The Coffee Cake
We placed the cinnamon rolls into the baking pan with sides touching. This creates a softer cake. Bake according to package directions.
The bottom is currently facing upwards while it cools after baking. You don’t have to always have the good stuff on top, do you? There should be some of this yummy goodness in every bite!
Turn your Apple Cinnamon Roll Coffee Cake over onto your serving dish to ice.
My hubby has declared this recipe a winner so I’m happy. It’s only 7 ingredients and it’s an almost from scratch easy coffee cake for fall. I’ve already been asked to make it again soon for some folks who missed out.
