Maple Apple Bread

This bread is so delicious. It is probably not the healthiest thing you'll ever eat, but it will rank right up there as one of the tastiest! A friend gave me this recipe. I think she found it in A Taste of Home magazine several years ago. We love it at our house; hope you enjoy it too.

1/4 c. brown sugar, packed
1 tsp. cinnamon
1 tsp. maple flavoring
1/2 c. chopped, peeled tart apple
2 T. all-purpose flour
1 egg, beaten
1/4 c. chopped walnuts
2 pkgs. refrigerated crescent rolls

1/2 c. powdered sugar
1 T. milk
1/2 tsp. vanilla extract (or maple)
Combine and drizzle over cooled bread.
In a bowl, combine brown sugar, flour, cinnamon, egg and flavoring. Mix well. Add apple and nuts; stir to coat. Unroll dough and separate into eight rectangles (put two triangles together to form the rectangle). Seal the seams and perforations. Spread each rectangle with apple mixture. Roll up, starting with the short side. Place lengthwise in a greased 8"x 4"x 2" loaf pan, making two layers of four rolls (I have used a bundt pan as well). Bake at 350° for 20 minutes. Then cover with foil and bake 30 minutes longer until golden brown, uncovering foil during the last 5 minutes. Cool for 10 minutes; remove from pan to a wire rack to cool completely. Combine glaze ingredients (below) and drizzle over bread. (This recipe tastes a little like cinnamon rolls).


  1. Sounds delish! Thanks for sharing ~

  2. So here are 2 questions: Are you putting it in the church cookbook? And.....did you keep your kitchen cleaned as you prepared it? :) Have a great day, Cheryl.
