Caramel Apple Monkey Bread ~ Ooey, Gooey Monkey Bread Spiced with Cinnamon!

So I might have skipped apples this fall and went straight for pumpkin with the Sweet Pumpkin Dip, Cinnamon Chip Pumpkin Cookies and Cinnamon Swirl Zucchini Pumpkin Bread. I apologize for this, but I was so excited for fall and pumpkin I might have jumped the gun.

I digress, and go back to apples just for you with this Caramel Apple Monkey Bread. Inspiration hit when I needed a Sunday breakfast at the end of the summer when we were at the lake and well Monkey Bread is like the most awesome breakfast ever.

I love the ooey, gooey caramel pull apart bread more than I’d like to admit. And since it’s full of those lovely things called calories I save it for special occasions. Occasions like being at the lake because obviously that’s just an excuse to make it. Hey, sometime I have excuses for recipes!

So if you are looking for a recipe to use up all those apples you got at the orchard, or if you are like me at the grocery store (shhh I’m not telling!) grab those apples, caramel and bread dough and get to work! Make it the night before, stick it in the oven and let the amazing smell of cinnamon and caramel wake up your family!
