Easy Apple Filled Breakfast Roll Recipe

Thursday, August 28, 2014

Funny how history repeats itself, my son Chad loves my cinnamon buns and so did my dad (R.I.P.). I had to make these in his memory today since it's his birthday today. No, these are not as good as yeast risen rolls but certainly better than refrigerated dough rolls from your dairy case at the supermarket. My son really loved these fresh apple baked breakfast rolls.

  My father would have loved them too. It would have been his 102nd  birthday today had he still been alive, miss him so much, R.I.P. daddy, he passed on in 1995.

 The apples makes these just delicious, the aroma in the kitchen is fantastic and the frosting adds the perfect addition to the sweetness of these. I don't know what they taste like the next day because there were none left.

Hope you like them as much as we did.

Soft Dough Recipe for Rolls:

2 cups flour more for rolling the dough
3 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt 
2 tablespoons sugar
3 tablespoons melted butter
1/4 cup milk
1/2 cup applesauce
1 egg

See filling and frosting recipes below

Using an electric mixer mix the the dough with a flat beater. Place on a floured surface and roll out the size of a brownie pan 12x9.  Brush dough with melted butter and then sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar mixture (below)  on the dough lightly.
Place the apple filling (below)  onto the dough and roll up like a jelly roll pinching the seam together on top.

 Slice rolls and place on a parchment lined brownie or jelly roll pan.  For a shine on the dough, brush with beaten egg over the tops of the rolls before baking(I skipped that step).  Bake at 350 degree preheated oven around 25 minutes or until browned. 

Drizzle frosting over the rolls 10 minutes after they are out of the oven cooling. Serve warm.

Apple filling:

2 medium apples chopped in small pieces
1 tablespoon butter
2 tablespoons brown sugar
1 tablespoon flour
Mix all together in a bowl and set aside

Cinnamon and Sugar:

Cinnamon and sugar mixed together 3 tablespoons to 1 teaspoon cinnamon.

Melted butter (around 2 tablespoons)  to brush on the dough.


1 cup powdered sugar
2 to 3 teaspoons warm water 
1 tablespoon butter softened
