This version of pull apart bread became much more popular than I anticipated! Not only did my husband eat half of this loaf in one sitting, but after also innocently posting it to my snapchat, I got countless messages!
It looks delicious… it IS delicious! It’s all of your favorite flavors from apple pie packed into an amazing pull apart bread covered in a delicious glaze.
This pull apart bread comes together so easily and really is a breeze to make. When you’re putting it together, just be sure to only do stacks of 4 at a time and you’ll have no problems at all. I chose to use granny smith apples because I love their taste and texture with cooking. They stand up well and don’t get too soggy. If you prefer a different variety of apple, by all means use what you prefer!
I love apple pie, but I’m not always up for making an entire apple pie. I’ve always loved any version of a pull apart loaf. Whether it’s my pizza pull apart (I’ll post the recipe soon), or just some old school monkey bread, I love pull aparts. This pull apart loaf brings all the flavors of apple pie in a much easier, much faster version. I have to admit this doesn’t last as long as apple pie in my house either!
