Iron Skillet Caramel Apple Monkey Bread Recipe

It’s always time for a Caramel Apple Monkey Bread!

This Iron Skillet Caramel Apple Monkey Bread Recipe is the perfect fall dish. With a homemade caramel sauce and glaze you can't go wrong! Breakfast/Dessert!

It’s perfect for baking while one baby naps, and the other baby (toddler) strategically takes the screws out of the baby bouncer. Not that I’d know anything about that, or anything. It might be the same child who got his face right into my Zoom call, called my client “Dodo” (which sounds meaner than it is but he calls every man Dodo, which is his grandfather’s nickname), and got ice cream out of the freezer only to spill it on the floor. This post isn’t about ice cream, though. It’s about the warmer things. This Iron Skillet Caramel Apple Monkey Bread is the perfect fall dish. With a homemade caramel sauce and glaze, you can’t go wrong! For breakfast, dessert, & more!

Iron Skillet Caramel Apple Monkey Bread Recipe:

What You Need:

2- 8 count tube of crescent rolls
2 medium sized apples (any kind will work but we always have Honeycrisp on hand)

2 – Peel and dice apples and place in the iron skillet

3 – Add cinnamon, ½ tsp vanilla, and ½ cup of brown sugar, and stir together and let cook for about 10 minutes or until apples are slightly softened

4 – Take crescent rolls and cut each roll in about 12 pieces (no need to unroll them), and then roll each piece into a ball

5 – Place all 24 dough balls into the skillet and gently mix

6 – Place iron skillet into a 400-degree oven and bake for 12-15 minutes or until the dough is golden brown

8 – Bring to a boil and stir constantly for about 8-10 minutes

9 – Take caramel sauce off heat and let it sit while making the glaze

  1. Where had this been all my life?! I want a house that smells like monkey bread and caramel apple goodness to take the edge of this gross and rainy day. So gross out today eh? I was just saying to a friend that today is the perfect day to sit down and write it all out, which I did earlier today. Was nice and cathartic.

    Look at you, shooting weddings, LIKE A BOSS!! You are awesome, Tamara, and so proud to see the confidence this profession has given you. Also poor Athena! Hope she is recovering from her run-in with Mr. Porcupine!

  2. No heat just yet. But sadly know it is coming probably soon. As for Athena, I truly hope she is OK and so sorry to hear you she got hurt. That said your moneky bread looks delcious and with the rain we are having today it is chilly here. So this would be perfect to warm us up here, as well!!

  3. I used to own and use iron skillets all the time, but I currently don’t have one. Can you believe I’ve never had Monkey Bread. It looks so delicious but I’ve never had the pleasure. Oh No! I hope Athena is ok.

  4. Yep, our heat has been kicking on – it’s chilly here at night! Poor Athena – I don’t know if I’ve ever seen a porcupine here. We just had the yummiest Monkey Bread in Vegas – it’s so good!
