With a Grateful Prayer and a Thankful Heart: Country Apple Coffee Cake

Country Apple Coffee Cake

No mixer needed to make this coffee cake.  It begins with a tube of refrigerated biscuits. I pulled out one of my oldest recipes remembering this yummy treat that is just right with coffee or a cold glass of milk.  Serve for breakfast, snack or dessert.
You could add a dollop of whipped cream or ice-cream if serving for dessert but you don't need it.
It is not overly sweet yet full of apple flavor.
Country Apple Coffee Cake


1 tablespoon butter, melted and cooled
2 cups chopped peeled, (if desired) apples
1 (12-oz.) can Refrigerated Biscuits
1/3 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1/3 cup light corn syrup
1 1/2 teaspoons orange juice
1 egg
1/2 cup pecan pieces

1 cup confectioners sugar
about 1 1/2 Tbs. orange juice
a few grains of salt


Heat oven to 350°F. Spray a 9-inch round cake/pie pan or 8-inch square pan. Spread 1 cup of the apples in sprayed pan.

Separate dough into individual biscuits. Cut each into quarters. Arrange biscuit pieces, points up, over apples. Top with remaining cup apples.

In small bowl, combine 1 tablespoon butter, brown sugar, cinnamon, corn syrup, orange juice and egg; stirring until smooth. Stir in pecans. Spoon over biscuit pieces and apples.

Bake at 350°F. for 35 to 45 minutes or until deep golden brown. Cool 5 minutes. If desired, remove from pan.

In small bowl, blend all glaze ingredients, adding enough orange juice for desired drizzling consistency. Drizzle over warm cake. Serve warm or cool. Store in refrigerator.
Servings:8 servings

  • I did not peel the apples preferring to leave them on for added nutrition and color.
  • The original recipe called for a 10-oz can of biscuits. I don't think you can find that size any longer.  I used Aldi brand and the can weighed 7.5-oz. so I used one and a half cans.  Next time I will use all of the second can.  You can purchase 12-oz cans which is just right for this recipe.
  • I  used my toaster oven to bake

When I was 16 I visited Chicago with my family. The lady we stayed with gave us coffee cake every morning for breakfast and also I have visited USA many times since I have never found any as nice as that. So I will try this recipe and see if it matches it...it certainly looks like it should!

What perfect timing Lorraine! I just went apple picking yesterday, and what bountiful crops the orchards are yielding this year!!! So today I picked up my refrigerated biscuits, and hopefully I'll be baking my Country Apple Coffee Cakes before the weekend! Thanks for sharing the recipe! ~tina
