    • I loved this recipe! I didn’t have apples, I had fresh peaches. Also, I had orange cinnamon rolls with orange flavored icing. I thought, hmmm… this might work. It worked great! OMG, this tasted sooo yummy, and while I was preparing it, somehow a little of the orange icing got into my cup of coffee.
      Thanks to you, I would’ve never thought of making this heavenly breakfast treat!

  1. Wow, these look so sinfully delicious…all gooey and sticky. My husband would love these, so I’ll definetly be trying them. Thanks for the recipe. Great pictures. Come by for a visit sometime, would love to have you.

  2. oh my they sound so wonderful, I can’t wait to try this recipe, I cook for a summer family and I am going to save this for them for one of their Brunches or Breakfasts when they get back. Thank you so very much for sharing!

  3. Made this for work today!! It was an absolute hit! The only addition I made was adding about 1/3 a cup of raisins. Delicious!

  4. Congratulations!

  5. First time reading your recipe blog…fabulous ideas. I will definitely try this apple cinnamon delight soon.

  6. This looks fantastic!! I have some fresh cranberries that would go well with the apples, too. I bet you could use all sorts of fruits in this – even bananas would be sort of “Foster-ish”.

    A new recipe for my repertoire! Thanks!
