Mmm! Coffee cake made easy by our good friend Bisquick. A quick crust is topped with a choux pastry, baked, then drizzled with maple glaze.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Heat oven to 350°F
  2. In small bowl, cut 2 tablespoons butter into 1 cup Bisquick mix, using pastry blender until crumbly. Sprinkle with 2 tablespoons water; mix until pastry cleans side of bowl. On ungreased cookie sheet, pat pastry into 11-inch circle. Set aside.
  3. In 3-quart saucepan, heat 3/4 cup water and 1/4 cup butter to rolling boil. Add 1 teaspoon maple flavor and 1 cup Bisquick mix all at once. Stir vigorously over low heat about 1 1/2 minutes or until mixture forms a ball; remove from heat.
  4. Beat in eggs, one at a time; continue beating until very smooth. Spread mixture evenly over the crust.
  5. Bake 45 to 50 minutes or until topping is crisp and dark golden brown; cool slightly.
  6. In small bowl, stir glaze ingredients until smooth and thin enough to drizzle. Drizzle over cofee cake. Sprinkle with pecans.

This was great. It was quite bit more work than I anticipated and it didn't look like what I expected, but it was unusual and very good. I think I might try making it in an 8 x 8 pan for greater ease, although it wouldn't be as pretty. I would also cut the icing in half. Thanks for sharing this.
