I was on a quest. An easy quest.

Almost embarrassed to admit this, but I’d never had monkey bread. Really. But I was determined to remedy that oversight.

It was one of those evenings where you just want something a little sweet, a little warm… and a little comforting. And I’d been thinking about monkey bread.

I didn’t want to take the time to make it from scratch. Because I really wasn’t sure I’d be a fan.

So yes… I broke out the canned cinnamon rolls. Two packages, an apple, some cinnamon sugar, a handful of walnuts, and maple syrup. That’s it.

Guess what? I’m now a fan! It’s good, and it couldn’t be easier.

How to Make Apple Cinnamon Monkey Bread

Step-by-step instructions are in the recipe card at the bottom of this post, but here is a quick overview!

Begin by preheating the oven to 350°F and coating a 12-cup Bundt pan with cooking spray. Then, remove the cinnamon rolls from the cans and reserve the icing.

  1. Place chopped apples and walnuts in 1 bowl, and the cinnamon sugar mixture in a separate bowl.
  2. Add 1/4 cup of cinnamon mixture to apples and toss to coat.
  3. Place half of the apples into the Bundt Pan. Then, roll half of the quartered cinnamon rolls in the cinnamon sugar mixture and place on top of the apples.
  4. Top with remaining apple pieces and roll the remaining cinnamon rolls in the sugar mixture and place on top of the apples. Combine the melted butter and maple syrup and pour over the top.
  5. Bake for 35-45 minutes, or until lightly browned.
  6. Cool for 10 minutes in the pan before removing to a serving dish. Let sit for another 10 minutes before drizzling reserved icing over the top. Serve warm.
