Apple cinnamon roll cake

DSC_0538 2

Autumn has officially arrived in Austria. We now harvested all the apples in our orchard and as usual are now making lots of apple sauce and pies. But this time I wanted to try something new and had the idea to make apple cinnamon buns, which turned out to be more fancier because I layered them or kind of stuffed them into a cake tin. And voilá out of the oven comes an extremely fluffy apple cinnamon bun cake reminding one of apple cinnamon fritters… mmh! DSC_0506

This is what you will need

  • 450g bread flour
  • 2 eggs
  • 210 ml milk
  • 5 tbsp. butter
  • 4 tbsp. sugar
  • 1tsp. salt
  • 1 package of dry yeast

Combine flour, yeast, sugar and salt in a bowl. Melt butter and add milk to cool off butter. Add eggs and melted butter mixture to flour mixture and stir using a cooking spoon until you have roughly combined all the ingredients. Now start kneading the dough with your hands until smooth and until it isn´t sticky anymore. Cover with a kitchen towel and let rise for about an hour. Meanwhile prepare the filling.

For the filling

  • 1kg of apples
  • 500 ml water
  • 150g sugar
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon
  • 2 tbs. lemon juice
  • 3 tbs. butter

Peal, core and cut apples into 1 cm dices. Combine apples, water, lemon juice and butter in a medium sized pot and bring to a boil. Cook apples until they turn out soft for about 5 minutes. Drain apples and set aside. Combine cinnamon and sugar in a bowl. Roll out yeast dough and sprinkle cinnamon sugar and apple dices on top. Roll up as if you were making cinnamon rolls. Cut roll into 3 cm slices and place into a buttered and floured (or parchment paper covered- way easier!) cake tin. Bake in oven for about 30 minutes until bun turns out golden brown (oven temperature 175°C.)

Enjoy warm or cooles out with a cup of coffee or milk!
