Caramel apple and cinnamon lasagna roll

Caramel Apple Cinnamon Lasagna Roll is a fun and delicious combination of classic apple caramel pie and delicious cinnamon roll. This sweet fall treat (just like the adorable Apple Crumb Cake) is a sweet treat, but it’s a great idea for an easy breakfast casserole, too.

Surely you all well know that I like to call my layered dessert creations – LASAGNA. I’ve yet to have Strawberry Jello Lasagna Baked, White Chocolate Lasagna, Caramel Pecan Lasagna, No-Bake Summer Berry Lasagna, Chocolate Lasagna, Christmas Lasagna, Key lime pie lasagna, and Pumpkin Lasagna. But these were all hearty desserts with cookie or shortbread crusts, pudding and cheesecake toppings and whipped topping.

For the Caramel Apple Cinnamon Roll lasagna, I had a slightly different concept, but called it lasagna again. This is a twist on the classic apple pie. In fact, it looks like a layered apple pie.

Instead of the classic pie crust, I used a cinnamon roll. I cut each roll into a thin layer, rather than flattening it slightly and arranging it on the bottom of the baking dish. I topped it with a mixture of fresh apple cubes, sugar, cornstarch, and cinnamon. Then I drizzled caramel sauce over the apple pie filling and then topped with another layer of cinnamon rolls. However, given that this is a layered dessert, I repeat all these layers again.




°2 packets of cinnamon rolls


°4 large apples, peeled and diced (Granny Smith or Golden Delicious)


°Half a cup of sugar


°1 teaspoon cinnamon


°Half a teaspoon of nutmeg


°1 tablespoon of cornstarch


°1/2 cup caramel sauce (or salted caramel sauce if you prefer)



Preheat oven to 375°F and spray an 8″ x 8″ x 2″ glass or ceramic dish with nonstick spray (I used a 7″ x 9″ x 2″ ceramic dish).

In a bowl, mix apple cubes, sugar, cornstarch, cinnamon, and nutmeg to coat evenly.

Cut the cinnamon rolls into 1/2-inch strips and roll them out on a floured work surface until fluffy. Sprinkle it with flour, as it is very sticky and will fall apart when rolled. You can dust your hands with flour and tap it to loosen it up if you find it easier.

Arrange the first layer of flattened cinnamon rolls on the bottom and sides of the dish. Press them with your hands to seal them well.

Spread 1/2 apple out of the filling and drizzle 2-3 tablespoons of caramel sauce on top. Cover with another layer of cinnamon rolls.

Spread the remaining apples and pour again with caramel sauce. Cover with remaining flat cinnamon rolls.

Cover with aluminum foil and bake for 30 minutes. Then remove the aluminum foil and bake for another 10-15 minutes until the top is golden brown.

Leave to cool for at least 30 minutes, drizzle with icing (which comes with the cinnamon rolls) and serve.

Enjoy !
