The Easiest Apple Cinnamon Roll Baguette
You probably have all the ingredients for this in your pantry!
Enjoy for breakfast or dessert (or hey, even a snack!)
What are the Ingredients in Apple Cinnamon Roll Baguette?
Well, as the name would suggest, we’re using some very basic ingredients: apples, cinnamon and a baguette. But to be more precise…
Baguette- Okay, technically you can use any bread for this, but I prefer either a thick French baguette (the thin ones get too crispy), or a big Italian loaf. You’re going to slice it in half lengthwise, so make sure it has enough insides to spread the cinnamon sugar mixture on both!
Butter- I always use unsalted butter for my baking recipes, but in this one, you can certainly use salted if that’s what you have.
Brown sugar- light or dark, it doesn’t matter! I always have light brown sugar on hand, but either works.
Vanilla extract- if you haven’t already, pleaseeee go try to make your own vanilla extract. It truly makes such a difference. It does take a few months though, so in this case, use what you have ;)
Apples- use what you have! My favorite variation for baking and snacking is Cosmic Crisp, but this recipes works well with Granny Smith, Gala, Honeycrisp…honestly it’s good with any!
Cinnamon– good ol’ fashioned cinnamon.
Glaze– the glaze is a mixture of powdered sugar, milk (or water) and a little bit of vanilla.
How to make Apple Cinnamon Roll Baguette
You’re going to start by slicing your loaf of bread in half lengthwise. Then make the cinnamon sugar mixture by combining the softened butter, brown sugar, vanilla and cinnamon in a small bowl. It’ll be a thick paste and you can spread it on both sides.
Now bake your loaves on a parchment lined baking sheet for 20-25 minutes.
Meanwhile, prepare your apple mixture by sautéing butter, apples, brown sugar, cinnamon and vanilla until the apples are soft and fragrant. It takes around 7-10 minutes on medium low heat. Set that aside to cool for a bit until the loaves are done.
Make your glaze by simply combining the powdered sugar, vanilla and milk to your desired consistency and set aside.
Once the bread comes out of the oven, top with the apples and drizzle with the glaze. Let it cool for 10 minutes then you can slice and enjoy.
Can I make it ahead of time?
Ideally you’d enjoy it warm, so it’s best to make when you’re ready to enjoy. You can spread the butter mixture ahead of time and sauté your apples as well.
When you’re ready to bake, just place the prepared bread in the fridge and then microwave your apples so they’re warm when the bread comes out of the oven.
How do I store any leftovers?
You can store the slices of prepared Apple Cinnamon Roll Baguette by placing them in an airtight container at room temperature for 2-3 days.
When you want to enjoy another slice, warm it up in the oven or air fryer and it comes back to life! Totally worth it!
