Cinnamon Apple Pull-Apart Bread Recipe
Cinnamon Apple Pull-Apart Bread Recipe – yeast bread, stuffed with cinnamon and diced apple. One of my favorite baked treats for fall.
Didn’t I just post a pull-apart bread recipe? I sure did! And this is almost the same recipe, with slight modifications, no pumpkin puree and I added apple pieces. It turned out delicious!
I wasn’t planning on definitely posting almost the same recipe in a week, but my apologies, I did not include step-by-step photos of the process making the pumpkin pull apart bread. They accidentally got deleted. And I needed to retake the pictures.
So I thought, why not share my apple pull apart bread recipe, since the process is exactly the same. This way you guys get a new recipe with step-by-step pictures which could be used for both.
At first, I thought I would make this with apple butter, but tiny pieces of apple are a great option, too!
The dough is quick and easy to make. It requires about 1 hour of rising time, before you cut it and place it in the baking pan and then 30 more minutes. I used active dry yeast.
If you love apple baked goods, this recipe is a must try!
It is almost like a fusion between apple pie and warm cinnamon rolls!
Hope the pictures help you with the process.

This is the perfect afternoon treat with a nice hot cup of tea.
Goodness! I’d love this with a cup of afternoon tea! Amazing offering, my friend! Pinned!
Mira, this looks so amazing. Just as good if not better than what you’d find in the best of bakeries!
I love your step-by-step instructions too. Perfect for people like me who don’t have a clue about these sorts of things!
This looks so delicious! Love your photos and really love the look of the cinnamon glaze!
Wow! I love everything about this bread! It looks amazing and I love apple and cinnamon!
This so amazing & delicious! This is my kind of fall bread, yum. Thanks for sharing at the #InspirationSpotlight party. Pinned & shared.
Omg, this has my newly formed sweet tooth going crazy! Oh Mira, I want to reach through the screen and eat the entire thing! What makes this even better…. I love, love, love anything cinnamon and apple!
Thanks for this awesome recipe. Everything about it was easy. My biggest problem was being home alone and eating 1/2 the loaf myself. Haha. Thank you for sharing. It’s always so exciting to find something good.
Thanks Brigit! Glad you liked it! I totally understand, I ate like half of it, too! It was soo good, while still warm 🙂
I have a ton of freshly picked apples right now so this would be perfect! So delicious looking.
Love pull apart breads, but never realized how easy to make they are!
If I make this bread and leave it in the fridge overnight, can I take it out and bake it in the morning?
Hi, no, because there is yeast in it. It may work, but sometimes yeast breads rise too much and it may ferment in the fridge, so the bread will have a weird taste. It may still work because the fridge might slow the rising, but I have not tried it with this particular bread and I can not recommend it.
Can this be frozen when baked?
This looks awesome
Yes, you can definitely freeze it for up to 3 months, just make sure you wrap it tightly. Thank you 🙂 Hope you like it!
I made this. Overall, I’m very proud of the result and thankful for the accessible recipe with easy to source ingredients. However, I found the dimensions and cutting instructions to be a little off; there was no way I was getting this to be a 20X12 rectangle. The pictures helped me even though they looked different from the written steps. Also the total time is waaaay off. From start to finish with an hour for rising, it took about 2 hrs. But in the end… delicious. I would have never attempted this type of bread before, and the recipe led to a delicious end result. I’ll b making this again.
You forgot to state when you add the salt.
Making this for breakfast today for my daughter’s sleep over.
Hope you like it! Salt is added to the flour, will correct. Thanks!
still haven t made the correction… I forgot the salt :/
I would like to make your Apple Cinnamon Pull-Apart Bread but the print button isn’t working.
It’ looks so good!
Hi Teresa, I just tried it and it is working for me. Could there be something blocking it on your browser? Let me know. Or maybe try a different browser.
Delicious! I made a “version” of this. I cheated and used store bought bread dough and rolled it in a log form then divided it. Easy to make and good!
I made this for the first time yesterday, I gave half of the loaf to my neighbor. It got rave reviews!! I love it so much, I am making another one today for my daughter. The recipe was very easy to follow and is delicious! I make the dough in my bread machine, let it rise, then I cut and place in the bread pan ?? Thank you for this, it’s a keeper!
Great! Glad you liked it! I’m actually enjoying a slice of it tight now 🙂
Hi, this looks really yummy…. i love apple pie so this will be a hit too…. anway i wanted to check about dry yeast amount, u have mentioned 1 pkg, it is possible to mention in tsp!!! Thanks
Hi, it is 2 and 1/4 teaspoons of dry yeast. Hope you like it!
Hi. The ingredients call for salt but not the instructions. Does the bread need salt? I just made my dough and didn’t add it.
Hi, the salt is just added to the flour, but honestly, even if you don’t use any, it will be fine.
I followed the instructions to a tee but my bread came out dry tasting with a dense texture. The bread itself was kind of bland. What could I have done wrong? What should the texture of the dough be before before the first proof?
It has a typical yeast bread and it comes out very light and soft, I’d guess that the yeast was not good or it id not properly rise. There is a lot of sugar and cinnamon that does in the filling, so it never tasted bland to me, not sure what went wrong.
