Biscuits, apples, orange juice? Sounds like breakfast to us. Orange juice adds brightness to both the bite-of-autumn bread and the cream cheese icing drizzle.


  • Nonstick cooking spray
  • 1 7 1/2 - ounce package (10) refrigerated reduced-fat home-style biscuits
  • 4 teaspoons ground flax seeds
  • 2 teaspoons granulated sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup thinly sliced apple
  • 3 tablespoons coarsely chopped walnuts
  • 2 tablespoons packed brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons orange juice
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 2 tablespoons reduced-fat cream cheese (Neufchatel), softened
  • 2 teaspoons orange juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Coat an 8x4x2-inch loaf pan with cooking spray; set aside. Cut biscuits in half crosswise. In a small bowl stir together ground flax seeds, 1 teaspoon of the granulated sugar, and the cinnamon. Roll biscuit halves in flax seed mixture to coat. Alternately arrange biscuit halves and apple slices in the prepared loaf pan. Sprinkle with any remaining flax seed mixture and the walnuts.
  2. In a small saucepan combine brown sugar, 2 tablespoons orange juice, and butter. Cook and stir over medium-high heat until boiling. Pour mixture over biscuits. Bake about 25 minutes or until edges are golden and biscuits near center are done. Cool in pan on a wire rack for 5 minutes. Invert bread onto a small baking sheet; invert again onto a serving platter.
  3. For icing, in a small bowl whisk together cream cheese, 2 teaspoons orange juice, vanilla, and the remaining 1 teaspoon granulated sugar. Drizzle bread with icing. Serve warm.
