Cinnamon Roll Apple Cake

, , , , ,

This time I thought of an apple cake that is a little different. I wanted to use a yeast dough and I came up with cinnamon rolls as the base.

My creation!!! The Cinnamon Roll Apple Cake!

The base is really soft and moist because of the cinnamon-roll layer.

I had just gotten a basket full of apples from a friend, perfect for this cake.
