I needed a quick morning coffee cake to bring to friends. I embellished one of those "monkey bread" recipe and my friends swooned over it. Did I tell them it took me 5 minutes to throw together? Nope! One even said they wanted me to make it for their Birthday! If they only knew....
It's a fabulous little cake that would be a great brunch item. And it's quick to put together and as you can see, not so bad on the eyes either!
Here's the recipe:
1 large apple (baking, I used empire)
2 cans of regular size, refrigerator biscuits (I used Pillsbury)
1/3 cup of chopped walnuts
2/3 cup brown sugar, divided
6 tablespoons butter
1 teaspoon cinnamon
Preheat oven to 375 F.
Peel, core and dice apple. Take biscuits out of cans, pull apart each biscuit and cut in fourths. Add 1/3 cup of brown sugar and cinnamon in a large bowl, mix together. Add biscuit pieces, stir together well. Set aside.
Put butter, 1/3 cup sugar and chopped walnuts in the bottom of a molded Bundt pan. Put pan in the oven for 5 minutes to melt butter. Take the pan out of the oven. Pour about half of mixture over the bowl with the biscuits and stir well. Spoon the biscuit mixture into the Bundt pan, pressing down at the top to distribute evenly. Place Bundt pan in the middle rack in the oven for about 25-30 minutes, until top is golden brown.
Remove from oven, let sit for 5 minutes. Place a large plate on top of the Bundt pan and invert the cake onto the plate.
Serve warm. The apples and walnuts make this simple cake just smell and taste heavenly!
