Without a doubt, fall weather kicks on my switch to start baking so when I saw this Cinnamon Apple Pull-Apart Bread from the amazing bakers at King Arthur Flour, I knew it was time to get out the dough hook to my mixer. While I’ve professed many times that I am a summer girl, getting back to baking helps ease the blow of colder months to come.
This bread is like a monkey bread but instead of balls of dough stuck together, it’s squares of dough stacked. I adapted it by upping the whole wheat flour content, adding in some nutmeg and tweaking the butter & sugar content. And I stacked the dough in a square pan vs. the traditional loaf pan. It’s a fun bread to put together and oh, when’s it baking….watch out. You may have family members hovering around the oven waiting for the timer to go off.
I actually served it as dessert (it’s a less sweet version of an apple tart) with a scoop of vanilla Greek style frozen yogurt (my latest fun find at Trader Joe’s.)
And here’s my favorite “outtake” photo…..
What do you like to bake in the fall? What’s your favorite recipe using apples?
