Just like the deep-fried fritters without all the extra grease. They are so easy you won’t believe it!

Recipe Ingredients

  • ½ cup white sugar
  • 3 tablespoons ground cinnamon
  • 1 (10 ounce) can refrigerated buttermilk biscuits, separated and cut into 1-inch chunks
  • 1 apple, peeled and chopped
  • ½ cup chopped pecans
  • ½ cup butter, melted
  • ¾ cup brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Cooking Directions

  1. 1 Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. 2 Mix white sugar and cinnamon together in a large resealable bag; add biscuits and seal. Shake bag until biscuits are coated in cinnamon-sugar.
  3. 3 Arrange half the apples and half the pecans in a round formation in an 8x8-inch pan; top with half the coated biscuits. Arrange half the remaining apples and pecans in a second layer and top with coated biscuits.
  4. 4 Melt butter in a saucepan over medium heat; dissolve brown sugar and vanilla extract in the melted butter. Pour butter-sugar mixture over biscuit mixture.
  5. 5 Bake in the preheated oven until biscuits are cooked through, about 35 minutes. Cool fritters in pan for 10 minutes before serving.

  1. My husband loved these. He usually buys apple fritters from Dunkin Donuts, but he liked these so much, he ate them instead! I don't usually make things that he likes, so I'm really excited that this recipe was easy to do and he really liked it.
  2. This was really quick and easy. I wasn't exact with the ingredients but close - made it a few hours ago and it is almost gone so I believe it's a keeper. Would be great in the mornings with coffee. Will surely make these No Fry Apple Fritters again. Thanks You Born To Cook.
  3. I made 2 of these for breakfast this morning. Because we're trying to limit sugar I used only half the amount called for and used 3 apples from our tree for the two "cakes" and they still turned out great! I also reduced the butter by 1/3 and I forgot to add the vanilla extract. - Read more ...

  5. All of my criteria for a 5 star recipe are right here! Easy tasty inexpensive and relatively quick. Not to mention decadent!
  6. Have made this a couple of times now for dessert. First time I made the day before. Taste was good but were flat (didn't rise). Second time I made the night of and MUCH better! As my Dad said - "these little suckers are quite addicting"!
  7. This is so easy. All it needs is some vanilla ice cream on the side and your off to the races.
  8. My Family loved it. Probably not the healthiest breakfast but perfect for a special day. I made mine with home made baking powder biscuits. I didn't bother to cut them up into biscuit shapes I just pulled the dough apart into rough clumps about 1/2 the size of my fist before I put them into - Read more ...
  9. This makes an appetizing coffee cake that is perfect with your morning coffee. Because my apples were small I ended up using three and chopped them in pieces. I baked it in a round ceramic dish that was buttered to keep the round shape. Take extra care in removing the cake from the pan as - Read more ...
