Caramel Apple Cinnamon Rolls

These caramel apple cinnamon rolls are filled with butter, brown sugar, apples, and caramel sauce for a warm fall breakfast or dessert. Tender and fluffy, they’re baked to golden perfection.

As soon as the weather begins to cool, I find myself craving warm homemade cinnamon rolls. There’s just something so cozy and comforting about their fluffy layers of dough and sweet topping.


– all-purpose flour – whole milk  – yeast – water – egg – unsalted butter – granulated sugar – vanilla extract – salt – olive oil

Add the yeast, warm water, and 1 teaspoon of sugar to a small bowl, whisk, and let it sit for 5 minutes. 

Once done, combine the milk, egg, remaining sugar, salt, yeast, and melted butter in a large bowl, and whisk by hand. Then add flour and using the lowest speed on a stand mixer, mix for 6 minutes.

Add a drizzle of olive oil to a large bowl, and toss the dough until it is well coated. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap or a towel and let the dough rest.

Combine the brown sugar and cinnamon in a small bowl followed by bite-sized pieces of apple. Roll the dough out into a rectangle that is roughly 24×15 inches.

Tips and Recipe Variations

- It’s important to have accurate measurements to create soft, fluffy rolls. - The rolls aren’t too sweet. If you like them extra sticky and sweet, serve with extra caramel!
