Cinnamon Apple Pull-Apart Bread Recipe – yeast bread, stuffed with cinnamon and diced apple. One of my favorite baked treats for fall.Cinnamon Apple Pull-Apart Bread Recipe

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.

  1. 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

  2. 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. 

    1. Hi, the salt is just added to the flour, but honestly, even if you don’t use any, it will be fine.

  3. 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?

    1. 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.

  4. Soft, delicious bread! I also make it with our pears. In the summer I mix up the apples or pears and freeze so it’s easy to make in the winter months. I like to take it along for breakfast on girlfriend trips. 🙂
