Ingredients

APPLE MIXTURE

  • 2 medium granny smith apples, peeled, cored, and diced into small pieces
  • 1 cup (200g) brown sugar, packed
  • 2 tablespoons cinnamon

BREAD MIXTURE

  • 2 cans (32 ounces) refrigerated biscuits*, flaky
  • 1 cup (200g) brown sugar, packed
  • ½ cup (1 stick or 113g) unsalted butter, melted

GLAZE

  • 1 cup (125g) confectioners' sugar, sifted
  • 2-3 tablespoons milk, depending on the desired consistency

Instructions

APPLE MIXTURE

  • The first step in this recipe is to peel, core, and dice two granny smith apples.
  • After you have diced the apples, heat the oven to 350°F and get out a medium bowl.
  • In a medium bowl, combine the brown sugar and cinnamon.
  • Add in the chopped apples and stir to make sure each apple piece is coated in the brown sugar/cinnamon mixture. Set the apples aside as you prepare the bread mixture.

BREAD MIXTURE

  • For the bread mixture, first, get out a large bowl and a large bundt pan. Grease the bundt pan or spray it with nonstick spray.
  • In the large bowl, combine the brown sugar and melted butter.
  • Remove the biscuits from the tube and cut them each into six pieces.
  • Add the biscuit pieces to the brown sugar/butter mixture and gently toss them to coat, making sure to get all the pieces coated.
  • To the prepared bundt pan add 1/3 of the apple mixture. Top with a layer of the coated biscuit pieces. Add another 1/3 of the apple mixture, followed by a second layer of biscuits, and top with a final layer of the remaining apple mixture.
  • Place in the preheated oven for 45 minutes.
  • When the bread is done, remove it from the oven and let it cool for about 10 minutes while you make the glaze.

GLAZE

  • While the bread is cooling, make the glaze. In a small bowl, mix the confectioners' sugar and milk, adding just one tablespoon of milk at a time, until you reach desired consistency. I prefer it on the thicker side.
  • Invert the cooled bread pan on a plate and drizzle it with the glaze.

Notes

*These are the biscuits you buy in a tube. You break open the tube and it POPS. :) Some countries do not have this type of biscuit. If you don't have it you make the dough from scratch or use a frozen roll like Rhodes. (I use Rhodes in this recipe: https://iambaker.net/orange-monkey-bread/ )
