Apple Cinnamon Spiral Bread with Caramel Cream Cheese Frosting
Moist, light and tender spiralling apple cinnamon filled bread topped with caramel cream cheese frosting!
With Thanksgiving approaching I have been thinking about some new recipe ideas and I always like to take some time on the holiday to do a special breakfast! What’s more, it’s fun to use seasonal ingredients like apples and this apple cinnamon spiral bread with caramel cream cheese frosting has been running around my mind for a while now. This recipe starts out with my favourite sweet yeast dough recipe, that I use to make cinnamon buns and sticky buns, and instead of using it to make buns or rolls I use it to make one really large bun or a spiral bread that is stuffed with slices of apples.
Since apples and cinnamon go well together I kept the cinnamon bun layer of cinnamon sugar in each spiral in addition to the apple slices. I enjoy cinnamon buns topped with a nice cream cheese based frosting and since apples and caramel are such a natural flavour combination I topped this apple cinnamon spiral bread with a caramel cream cheese frosting! No matter how you slice it this cinnamon spiral bread with caramel cream cheese frosting is one amazingly good combination of flavours that is perfect for breakfast!
