  • In a large saucepan over medium heat, combine the apples, water, cinnamon, cornstarch and fructose. Cook until apples are soft and mixture is thickened, about 10 minutes.

  • Pour the apple mixture into a casserole dish.

  • Prepare biscuit dough by combining the whole-wheat pastry flour and baking powder. Add the oil and stir until well mixed. Add the honey and buttermilk; stir with a fork until flour mixture is moist. Add additional milk if necessary.

  • Drop biscuit dough by tablespoons on top of apples. Bake for 20 minutes or until biscuits are golden brown. Serve warm.

I'm giving it 2 stars because my husband ate it... I didn't like it at all--maybe I did something wrong... I divided the flour into 1/2 ww and 1/2 white thinking the topping would be lighter. It was too tough crumbly and tasteless to me... Read More

My husband loved this when I made it for him. I didn't buy the pastry flour so I just used regular whole wheat flour and did minimal mixing. Read More

This is a low-fat cake and I like it. It doesn't take much time to make. As I am a diabetic I lowered the amount of sugar. Also you should lower the oven to 150 degrees. Read More

Very good! Didn't have fructose used sugar instead. I also added ground allspice and clove. Sprinkled a dash of brown sugar and spices on top of biscuit batter just before baking. Next time I will try tapioca instead of cornstarch as a thickener. Cornstarch has a slimy kind of texture. Read More

Not very sweet. The apples tasted like apples and the dough like dough. Ended up sprinkling sugar and cinnamon on top. Next time I will put honey in with the apples and sprinkle the dough with sugar and cinnamon before putting it on top. Read More
