This is a very hearty and rich dish. Apple and butter mix together very well, and apple releases acidic liquid that balances out the sweet taste of the bun. You can use some other sweet ingredients, such as Pink Lady. Everything with a strong flavor is perfect for this recipe.
These biscuit buns are crusty and crunchy on the outside and fluffy and creamy on the inside. The technique is very simple and even the amateur chefs can make this. If you never tried apple cinnamon buns, you can discover a new taste!
The biscuit and bun go surprisingly well together: you will get a sugary, savory and sweet taste. It’s incredibly easy to make and requires minimal effort. It’s a perfect option for a cold, winter morning. And apples are good for your health, too!
Apple biscuit buns for breakfast
Who doesn't like cinnamon buns? My favorite version is with caramelized apples and lots of cinnamon. These buns use homemade dough but if you aren't ready to prepare you own, you can always use quick dough. The buns are really delicious and flavorful, and apple and cinnamon is a heavenly combination.
For the filling:
- 290 g brown sugar
- 70 g butter
- 23 ml cinnamon
- 8 oz apples, cut into small cubes
For the Buns:
- 120 ml buttermilk
- 1 egg
- 435 g flour
- 15 ml sugar
- 40 ml baking powder
- 40 ml salt
- 8 ml baking soda
- 170 g salted butter
Start by adding butter to the baking pan, out it on the counter. Prepare the filling. Take a bowl, add the cinnamon, butter and sugar. Take a fork and cut the butter, the mixture should look like sand. Put it in the fridge for 15 minutes.
Take another bowl, combine eggs and buttermilk. Take a new bowl, add the rest of the ingredients. Use your hands to incorporate the butter. This usually takes around 5 minutes. The mixture should feel like sand. It can have little chinks, but not big ones. Add the mixture from the first bowl and mix it together with the dough. It won't be fully blended, so 5 minutes of mixing is enough. The butter shouldn't melt. If it does, the buns will be less fluffy and soft.
Preheat the oven to 350F. Set a rack in the middle. Place the dough onto a paper and form a ball. Take a rolling pin into a big rectangle. I usually make it 9- by 15- inch rectangle. If you make it smaller, make sure to bake it longer. If it's bigger, baking times will be shorter.
Sprinkle the dough with the sugar mixture, make sure to make a little border across one edge. Top the buns with the apples, press them down. Roll the dough out, use can use the paper to help you. When one edge reaches the border, turn it upside down.
Cut the roll into 9 buns, place them on a pan. Bake until brown and bubbling. It usually takes 30 minutes. Serve immediately, don't refrigerate cooked buns.
