Ok, you guys have seen those 'Tasty' food videos that everyone shares on Facebook, right? They always make things look so easy and so damn delicious. So ... here I am today giving one of those recipes a try. I save so many to my Facebook and it's about time I get cracking.
This recipe was just as simple and just as delicious as it looked in the video. And as a self proclaimed 'terrible baker', it's really nice that the base of this bake is cinnamon buns from a can. YES!
Apple Pie Bake
2 packs cinnamon roll dough with icing
½ cup milk
1 tablespoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 tablespoons butter
2 granny smith apples, diced
1 cup brown sugar, packed
Vanilla ice cream
Preheat oven to 375°C.
Cut the cinnamon roll dough into 3 even strips, then cut those strip in 3 pieces, making 9 pieces total per cinnamon roll. Set aside the icing.
In a medium bowl, combine eggs, milk, cinnamon, and extract, stirring until smooth. Set aside.
In a pan over medium heat, combine butter, apples, and brown sugar, cooking until sugar starts to caramelize, about 10 minutes. Remove from heat.
Sprinkle the cinnamon roll dough pieces evenly in a 9×9 baking tray. Pour the egg mixture on top, followed by the apples. Drizzle the reserved icing on top.
Bake for 25–30 minutes, until golden brown. Serve with ice cream.
