Apple & Spice Pull-Apart Bread

Apple and Spice Pull-Apart Bread
25 Min

When we first taste-tested this recipe in the Test Kitchen, we practically had to form a single file line, so everyone could get a chance to pull-apart their piece. Once someone got a bite, it was hard to keep them from finishing the whole dessert on their own! All kidding aside, this Apple & Spice Pull-Apart Bread may be one of the best recipes we've ever created.

What You'll Need

  • 1 round loaf hearty white or sourdough bread, unsliced
  • 1 1/2 stick (3/4 cup) butter, melted
  • 1/2 cup dry spice cake mix
  • 1/2 cup light brown sugar
  • 1 apple, peeled, cored, and finely diced
  • 1 cup confectioners' sugar
  • 1 tablespoon milk

What to Do

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Coat a baking sheet with cooking spray.
  2. Using a serrated knife, make a criss-cross patter in the bread slicing 1 inch apart, cutting almost all the way to the bottom but being careful not to cut through completely. Place bread on baking sheet. Evenly pour butter between each bread section.
  3. In a medium bowl, combine dry cake mix and brown sugar; mix well. Add apples and toss until evenly coated. Evenly sprinkle apple mixture between between each of the bread sections, being careful not to break the bread apart. Sprinkle any remaining mixture over the bread.
  4. Bake 25 to 30 minutes, or until bread is crispy on top and bottom.
  5. In a small bowl, whisk confectioners' sugar and milk until smooth. Drizzle over warm bread and serve immediately.

This bread is incredible. Every bite gets better and better. Who knew you could throw some cake mix on a loaf of bread and create such magic. This recipe is definitely a keeper.

This is one of my favorite recipes in the new cookbook. It's an unexpected way to use cake mix, and the flavor and textures are amazing! I might have to add this to my Thanksgiving dessert table!
