Inside: A crave-able and share-able Country Apple Fritter Pull-Apart Bread that is just the thing for Fall!

I might have mentioned it before, but my husbandloves donuts. At least once a week he treats himself and the girls with a trip to our local donut shop.

His donut of choice? Apple fritters— rich (and usually pretty large) bundles of cinnamon dough and apple pie filling. They’re addicting!

What are the Best Type of Apples to Use?

Gala apples are my favorite because they are mild and sweet. They taste amazing in this recipe! If you’d like to make it a little less sweet, try using Granny Smith Apples.

Can You Use Any Type of Biscuit?

For this recipe, it is important to use flaky-style biscuits because they are made to pull apart into layers. This is crucial for putting our apple filling between slices and for getting the “pull apart” effect after baking. Southern style biscuits are crumbly as opposed to flaky, so they won’t be right for this recipe.

How to Make Apple Pull Apart Bread

Combine diced apples, brown sugar, and spices in a large saucepan over medium heat.Cook until apples have browned and softened and sauce is thick (stir occasionally to prevent scorching).Set aside to cool.

Preheat oven to 350°F.

Prepare a 9 x 5 inch loaf pan with non-stick cooking spray or butter.

Remove biscuits from can and peel apart layers until you have 16 biscuit halves.

Spoon about a tablespoon of cooked apple filling onto each biscuit piece.

Stack the biscuits on top of one another, forming stacks 4-5 biscuits high. Arrange biscuits in the loaf pan, carefully turning stacks on their sides as you do so. Make sure that plain biscuit is on each end of the loaf and that filling does not touch the pan.

Cover with foil and bake for 30 minutes at 350°F.(We like our biscuits a little on the softer side – if you prefer yours a bit more “done” bake for 35 minutes).

Remove foil cover and continue baking until golden brown (about 5-8 minutes).

Remove from the oven and allow to cool about 5 minutes in pan before placing bread on another surface.

Drizzle glaze liberally over the top of the country apple fritter bread, allowing glaze to run down the sides.
