Country Apple Coffee Cake

Sliced apples and flaky biscuits form the base of this sweetly-spiced spin on a coffee cake.


  • 2 tablespoons butter, softened
  • 1 can (12 oz.) Pillsbury® Grands!™ Juniors Flaky Layers Buttermilk Biscuits
  • 1 1⁄2 teaspoons whiskey, if desired
  • 1⁄2 cup Fisher® Chef's Naturals® Pecan Halves or Pieces
  • 1 1⁄2 cups chopped peeled apples
  • 1⁄3 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1⁄4 cup ground cinnamon
  • 1⁄3 cup light corn syrup
  • 1 egg
  • 1⁄3 cup powdered sugar
  • 1⁄4 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 teaspoons milk


  • Heat oven to 350°F. Using 1 Tbsp. of the butter, generously grease 9-inch round cake pan or 8-inch square pan. Spread 1 cup of the apples in pan.
  • Separate dough into 10 biscuits. Cut each into quarters. Arrange biscuit pieces, points up, over apples. Top with remaining 1/2 cup apples.
  • In a small bowl, mix remaining 1 Tbsp. butter, the brown sugar, cinnamon, corn syrup, whiskey and egg; beat 2 to 3 minutes or until sugar is partially dissolved. Stir in pecans. Spoon over biscuit pieces and apples.
  • Bake 35 to 45 minutes or until deep golden brown. Cool 5 minutes. If desired, remove from pan.
  • In small bowl, mix the powdered sugar, vanilla and milk, adding enough milk for desired drizzling consistency. Drizzle over warm cake. Serve warm or cool. Cover and refrigerate any remaining coffee cake.
