My Grandmother used to make this for my mother when she was a child, and my Mom made it for us, alot. It was requested very often in our household. I now make it for my daughter (and my husband) on a regular basis, at least once every two weeks. It is the ultimate in comfort food. My daughter loves it reheated for breakfast. Hope you all enjoy this age old recipe!

This was the first time I have made a dessert with Bisquick. It was easy to prepare and my family thought it tasted pretty good. Thanksd BlueHyacinth.
