Ingredients:

  • Dough:
    • 1/4 cup fine white sugar
    • 2 teaspoons of salt
    • 7 oz unsalted butter, softened
    • 7 ounces of milk
    • 4.5 cups bread flour
    • 2 eggs
    • 2 teaspoons instant yeast
  • Filling:
    • 1 1/4 cup dark brown sugar
    • 5 oz unsalted butter, softened
    • 2 green apples, chopped
    • 1 tablespoon of cinnamon
  • Caramel:
    • 1 cup of white sugar
    • 6 tablespoons unsalted butter, room temperature
    • 1/2 cup heavy cream
    • 1/4 teaspoon of salt

Directions:

  1. Prepare the dough: In a large bowl, combine sugar, salt, softened butter, milk, bread flour, eggs and yeast. Mix well for a few minutes, then knead until the dough is smooth and elastic. Let the dough rise in a warm place for about 1 hour.
  2. Make the filling: While the dough is rising, combine the softened butter, brown sugar and cinnamon in a bowl. Refrigerate the mixture to firm it up, making it easier to handle later. Cut the green apples into small pieces.
  3. Assemble the rolls: Roll out the risen dough into a rectangle measuring approximately 90 x 45 cm. Spread the chilled filling evenly on the dough and distribute the chopped apples on top. Carefully roll the dough into a log and use string or a sharp knife to cut it into rolls.
  4. Cook: Place the rolls in a baking dish, leaving some space between them to allow for expansion. Apply an egg wash (beat an egg with a little milk) to each roll. Bake in a preheated 375°F (190°C) oven for about 30 to 35 minutes, or until golden brown.
  5. Add the caramel: While the buns are hot, pour the freshly made caramel over them.

Enjoy these warm, gooey and utterly delicious Caramel Apple Cinnamon Rolls, perfect for a sweet treat any time of day!
