We are all familiar with apple cobbler--that cozy dish of warm apples topped with golden biscuits. But have you ever tried it all mixed together to create a cake? Here, the apples are nestled within the sweetened biscuit mixture, creating an apple cake with a unique texture. The cinnamon and nutmeg bring the quintessential apple pie flavors to the dessert, making it a perfect--yet unexpected--addition to your holiday table.

This recipe calls for biscuit baking mix, resulting in a super-quick recipe you can throw together in minutes. Surprise your family on a weeknight with this comforting Southern delight. If you prefer, you can use a homemade biscuit mix recipe.

Granny Smith may be the go-to apple for baking, but there are so many other varieties that are equally, if not more so, delicious when baked in a dessert. If available in your local market, try Jonagold, Honeycrisp, Mutsu, or Winesap.
