Upside Down Cinnamon Apple Coffee Cake
A five ingredient dessert with about five minutes of prep time and half an hour of baking -- sign me up! I also really liked that this was semi-homemade, the cinnamon rolls were an easy way to make this as quickly as possible. If you're looking for a good brunch recipe or dessert recipe to serve with coffee after dinner this is a good recipe to choose.
This recipe comes from Lady Behind the Curtain.
-1-1/2 cups apples, chopped and peeled
-1 can (12.4 ounce) Pillsbury cinnamon rolls with icing
-2 tablespoons butter, melted
-1/3 cup packed brown sugar
-2 tablespoons corn syrup
-1/2 cup pecan halves or pieces (optional)
|Mix together the melted butter, brown sugar and corn syrup.|
|Put half of the apples in the bottom of a greased 9 inch pie pan.|
|Take all of the cinnamon rolls out of the package, cut each into four pieces.|
Put the cinnamon rolls and the rest of the apples into a large bowl.
Coat with the butter, brown sugar, corn syrup mixture.
Bake at 350 for half an hour.
|Let cool, then flip onto a plate.|
Heat up the icing until it is liquid and drizzle over the coffee cake.
|Lots of icing.|
|Slice into wedges to serve.|
This dessert was so easy and delicious to make. We had this as an after dinner dessert with coffee, but this would have been delicious with breakfast or even as a brunch food. This could be easily adapted with other cinnamon roll flavors, I know my store sells one with an orange flavored icing which would be good with this recipe.
