This bisquick coffee cake recipe is one of my favorites. It used to be on the back of the Bisquick box, but they replaced it a few years ago. I'm posting it here not only to share it, but as a backup in case I lose my recipe card :)
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
- Grease a deep pie plate, 8"x8" square pan, or 9"x9" square pan.
- Mix dough ingredients and put in baking dish.
- Mix topping ingredients with a fork or pastry mixer until crumbly.
- Spread topping mix over dough and drag a butter knife across like you were making a tic-tac-toe board several times.
- Bake for 25 minutes.
I made this recipe with a 21 ounce can of apple filling and I increased the cinnamon to 1/2 teaspoon. I cooked it for 25 minutes but it was not long enough for the addition of the filling but i did not discover it until I let it cool and ate three pieces! It was still awesome and not wanting to waste any, I reheated the oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit and cooked it for an additional 20 minutes in 10 minute increments. That did the trick. The next time I will add 5 minute increments to the original cooking and take note. And finally, the filling added flavor, texture, and the cake was definitely not dry. I couldn't imagine it without filling, but I just have to perfect the cooking time. I hope this helps. :oD
I love this recipe! I always double the topping and score it really deep or it can be a bit dry and floury tasting. I also like to mix up a simple glaze just using leftover-from-the-pot or fresh coffee and powdered sugar and then drizzle it over the top, adds a ton of flavor!
Excellent recipe! I made mine into a Lemon Coffee Cake! Followed recipe as written and for the Lemon, I took a box of Jello lemon pudding mix and added 1 cup of milk and brought to a boil whisking consistently until creamy, almost fluffy. Then let it cool completely and added to the cake mixture. It's so delicious! I think I'll make decaf tonight just to have some! Thanks for the easy recipe!
