Cinnamon Apple Delight Pull-Apart Cake


For the Dough:

  • 2 ¼ teaspoons (1 packet) active dry yeast

  • ½ cup warm water (110°F/45°C)

  • ¼ cup granulated sugar

  • ⅓ cup milk, at room temperature

  • ⅓ cup unsalted butter, melted

  • 3 ¾ - 4 cups all-purpose flour

  • ½ teaspoon salt

  • 2 large eggs

For the Filling:

  • 4-5 medium-sized apples, peeled, cored, and thinly sliced

  • ⅓ cup granulated sugar

  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

  • ½ teaspoon ground nutmeg

  • ¼ cup unsalted butter, melted

For the Glaze:

  • 1 cup powdered sugar

  • 1-2 tablespoons milk

  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract


  1. Activate the Yeast: In a small bowl, combine warm water, a pinch of sugar, and yeast. Let it sit for about 5-10 minutes until frothy.

  2. Prepare the Dough: In a large mixing bowl, combine the activated yeast mixture, sugar, milk, melted butter, 3 ¾ cups of flour, salt, and eggs. Mix until a soft dough forms. If needed, add more flour a little at a time until the dough is smooth and elastic.

  3. Knead the Dough: Turn the dough onto a lightly floured surface and knead for about 5-7 minutes until it becomes smooth and elastic.

  4. First Rise: Place the dough in a greased bowl, cover with a damp cloth, and let it rise in a warm place for 1-1.5 hours or until it doubles in size.

  5. Prepare the Filling: In a bowl, mix the sliced apples with sugar, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Set aside.

  6. Assemble the Cake: Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease and flour a bundt pan or a tube pan.

  7. Divide and Fill the Dough: Punch down the risen dough and divide it into small golf ball-sized portions. Roll each ball into a circle, brush with melted butter, and layer with the apple mixture. Stack the circles on top of each other.

  8. Second Rise: Place the stacked dough in the prepared pan. Cover and let it rise for 30-45 minutes.

  9. Bake the Cake: Bake in the oven for 30-35 minutes or until golden brown and cooked through.

  10. Prepare the Glaze: While baking the cake, prepare the glaze by mixing powdered sugar, milk, and vanilla extract until smooth.

  11. Glaze and Serve: Once the cake is done baking and slightly cooled, drizzle the glaze over the top. Let it set for a few minutes. Transfer to a pedestal stand for a beautiful presentation against a light background.

  12. Serve and Enjoy: Slice and serve the apple cinnamon pull-apart cake for a delightful treat!
