How to Make Pull Apart Bread

Start by lining a 9×5″ loaf pan with parchment paper then spray it with cooking spray. This helps the bread come out easily.

Refrigerated biscuits are the key to this recipe. To make pull apart bread, press each biscuit flat into an oval. How large? Think about your loaf pan, and what would fit width and height wise in there. Then roll them about that big.

  • Brush butter onto one side of rolled biscuit, then spread a tablespoon of sugar over biscuit. Spread apple pieces over sugar. Place some caramel bits with the apples.
  • Put a rolled out biscuit on top of apple topped biscuit. Repeat the sugar, apple and caramel layer. Put another biscuit on top. Carefully transfer the three layered biscuit into the bread pan, standing it up at one end. Brush butter over the end.
  • Repeat process until all biscuits have been used. You may need to push them tight together in the pan. Brush remaining butter over top of the biscuits.

If you have any leftover caramel bits or apples, sprinkle them on the top of the loaf.

  • Cover with tinfoil and place on a large tin foil lined cookie sheet.
  • Bake covered for 45 min. When it has baked for 30 minutes check for doneness, if it still needs time, recover with foil and bake the remaining 15 minutes.
  • Uncover and bake another 15 minutes till the top is nice and browned. Check the middle to make sure it is completely cooked. You may need to bake an additional 10-15 minutes.

How to Serve Pull Apart Bread

This pull apart bread will come apart very easily. You can serve the bread with two forks, one to pull on a slice of bread and another to put a piece on your plate.

This bread is fantastic to eat just as is, but is also good with a scoop of ice cream on top.
