I always have these ambitious ideas for the weekends. I’ll wake up early, clean house before everyone wakes up, make a grand breakfast and follow all of that up with some fun family time. The reality is though I wake up thanks to my internal alarm clock and I may or may not clean house a bit. Breakfast falls short and is usually just a quick trip to the donut shop for some sugar laden treats and usually after that I decide after spending all week with the kids that I need at least one afternoon for a break and stretch out errands to an ungodly amount of time. Don’t judge me! You know you have roamed the grocery or discount store for hours just to enjoy the alone time. This past Sunday though I did wake up early, clean some house, make a yummy breakfast and spend the afternoon with the family. My yummy breakfast ended up being much easier than I thought with this super simple apple cinnamon roll cake.
While I do love elaborate baking I’m just like anyone else and I sometimes like to take shortcuts to create recipes. This Apple Cinnamon Roll Cake was so easy to make! All I needed was one tube of cinnamon rolls with icing and a can of apple pie filling.
This is one of those awesome things to make that tastes great and is ready to pop in the oven in just minutes.
Once it’s out of the oven and cools for a minute or two you can ice it and enjoy it warm. I bet this would even make a great dessert if you topped it with some ice cream.
This is the perfect breakfast for someone with a sweet tooth! It’s like cinnamon rolls meets apple pie meets a cake. Just what you need for those times you want something sweet but can’t decide between a few different things.
This was a big hit in my house!
- 1 12.4 oz. tube of cinnamon rolls with icing
- 1 21 oz. can of apple pie filling
- Preheat oven to 350° and spray a 9" X 9" pan with baking spray.
- Open the tube of cinnamon roll dough. Set the icing aside. Cut the cinnamon rolls into quarters and place in a mixing bowl. Open the apple pie filling and pour into the mixing bowl. Stir together and then spread evenly into the prepared pan.
- Bake for 35-40 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from the oven and cool for a minute or two.
- While the cake is cooling pour the icing into a plastic baggie and seal it. Cut a small piece off of one of the bottom corners. Squeeze the icing bag to drizzle the icing over the still warm cake.
- Cut, serve and enjoy!
