Apple Cinnamon Spiral Bread with Caramel Cream Cheese Frosting

Apple Cinnamon Spiral Bread with Caramel Cream Cheese Frosting
With Thanksgiving approaching I have been thinking about some new recipe ideas and I always like to take some time on the holiday to do a special breakfast! What's more, it's fun to use seasonal ingredients like apples and this apple cinnamon spiral bread with caramel cream cheese frosting has been running around my mind for a while now. This recipe starts out with my favourite sweet yeast dough recipe, that I use to make cinnamon buns and sticky buns, and instead of using it to make buns or rolls I use it to make one really large bun or a spiral bread that is stuffed with slices of apples. Since apples and cinnamon go well together I kept the cinnamon bun layer of cinnamon sugar in each spiral in addition to the apple slices. I enjoy cinnamon buns topped with a nice cream cheese based frosting and since apples and caramel are such a natural flavour combination I topped this apple cinnamon spiral bread with a caramel cream cheese frosting! No matter how you slice it this cinnamon spiral bread with caramel cream cheese frosting is one amazingly good combination of flavours that is perfect for breakfast this Thanksgiving!

  2. Add the sugar, eggs, butter, sour cream, vanilla, salt and 2 cups of flour and mix for 2 minutes at medium or 200 strokes by hand.
  3. Stir in enough of the remaining flour to make a soft dough.
  4. Place the dough onto a lightly floured surface and knead the dough until smooth, about 5 minutes. (The dough should feel soft and buttery and not sticky.)
  5. Place the dough in a greased the bowl, cover with a damp towel and let the dough rise until it has doubled in size, about 1 hour and 30 minutes.

  11. Brush the butter on the dough and sprinkle on the mixture of the sugar and cinnamon.
  12. Spiral the strips of dough outwards from the centre of two greased 9" circular baking pans placing apple slices in between the layers of dough.
  13. Bake in a 375F/190C preheated oven until lightly golden brown, about 15-20 minutes.
  14. Top the buns with the frosting and enjoy!

Questions.
Which way am I cut the dough into 1" strips? Down the 24" length or across the 12"?
Is there a second (2nd) rise after rolling out dough and putting to the pans?

Thank You

This looks so good. What sugar amounts go with what? Thanks!

How large are servings (weight-wise) so that they come out to 317 calories? [Though I'm hesitant to even make this because one serving is my entire daily allotment of carbs!]

Is there a really easy substitute for the dough? I know its the most deliscious when you make everything from scratch, but in a pinch...
