Just when you think Cinnamon Rolls can’t be any better, along comes caramel and apple. These are amazing! Ooey gooey and all of those Fall flavors and feels. Not only do these taste just as incredible as you imagine, they also make your house smell amazing. Which is a nice little side bonus.

Tiny chunks of apples plus the regular cinnamon roll insides (my favorite part) and then topped with melty caramel. The perfect bite really.

These feel like a chilly Sunday morning to me, give them a try and let me know what you think? Love these! Follow me over on Facebook and Instagram @lolohomekitchen. Be sure to snap a pic if you make a Lolo’s recipe and tag it with #lolohk. I love to see what you are making!

Ingredients

Dough Ingredients

1 cup lukewarm milk

1/3 cup lukewarm water

1 package (2 1/4 teaspoons) Red Star Platinum yeast

1 large egg, beaten

2 teaspoons granulated sugar OR honey

3 3/4 cups all-purpose flour

1 teaspoon fine salt

Filling Ingredients

1/2 cup brown sugar

2 tablespoons ground cinnamon

1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg

1/8 teaspoon fine salt

4 tablespoons butter, melted and cooled

1 Granny Smith apple peeled, and finely chopped

1/4 cup caramel sauce, homemade or store-bought plus more for drizzling

Instructions

  1. In a stand mixer fitted with the dough hook, stir together the milk, water, and yeast. Let stand for 5 minutes. Add in the egg and sugar, mix until combined.
  2. Add in half the flour and mix until just combined. Add in the salt. Add the remaining flour and mix again on low. Increase speed to medium low and knead until the dough is smooth, about 7 minutes.
  3. Remove dough from the mixer and shape the dough into a ball and place inside a greased mixing bowl. Move dough ball around ball to get all covered with oil. Cover with plastic wrap and allow to rise until doubled in size, about 1 to 1 1/2 hours.
  4. Punch the dough down then remove from bowl. On a lightly floured work surface, roll the dough out into a 9 by 15-inch rectangle.
  5. In the meantime, in a small bowl combine the sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt.
  6. Now brush the melted butter all over the dough. Sprinkle the sugar mixture all over the buttered dough. Add the apple pieces in an even layer. Drizzle the caramel all over.
  7. Roll the dough up tightly, then use a sharp serrated knife to cut the ends off, and then slice 11 to 12 equal pieces.
  8. Loosely cover and allow to rise for 30 minutes to 1 hour, or until puffy. Bake at 350 degrees for 25 minutes, or until golden brown.
