I made these Cinnamon Roll Stuffed Baked Apples for a Halloween brunch I hosted last year and let me tell you, they went down a treat! Everyone was so impressed by the cinnamon rolls stuffed into the apples. The best thing for me is that they were super easy to prepare. The dough doesn’t require a long proving time which means I could prep these and concentrate on some of my other dishes and then bake them when the guests arrive.

I make a simple dough from water, yeast, flour, honey and salt. While the dough is proving, I hollow out some round wide apples. I fill the dough with cinnamon sugar and butter and roll it up to make the cinnamon rolls which I then stuff into each of the hollowed out apples. Once these are baked, I drizzle over a cream cheese frosting to make this impressive looking dessert!
