Simple Apple Fritter Pull Apart Bread for Breakfast
This apple pull apart bread recipe is one of those breakfast recipes that you’ll bake and will be gone in no time. This is in demand in our household all the time!

How to Make Apple Fritter Pull Apart Bread
Finely chop your apples (or use a blender, like me), and combine the ingredients for your apple mixture into a saucepan until the apple pieces are soft and the sauce has thickened.
In a bowl, mix together your ingredients for the cinnamon butter mixture, and baste each side of the refrigerated biscuit piece with the cinnamon butter. Lay the biscuit piece in a sprayed glass loaf pan and top it with about a teaspoon to tablespoon size of the apple mixture.
Continue basting with cinnamon butter and topping with the apple mixture for every biscuit piece.
Be sure to fill the loaf pan, and should you have extra apple mixture, stuff the extra in between the sections. Baste the tops and sides with the cinnamon butter and press down gently to make it fill the bread pan.
Cover and bake for 30 minutes until cooked through. You can remove the foil and bake for another 5-10 minutes until the tops are golden brown and there’s a beautiful crusted edge. Once the foil is removed, you can begin to whip up the glaze. Drizzle the glaze onto the bread once it’s safely removed from the bread pan.
Will you just look at those apple fritter cinnamon glazed sections! This pull apart bread is just gorgeous, isn’t it?
