Easy Maple Pecan Coffee Cake

Recipe by SusieQusie

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.

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.

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.
