  1. Love this! I usually make double topping.
  2. I made this on 9/11/08 and it was just o.k.. To me it wasn't sweet and moist enough for me to want to make this again. :(
  3. Good coffee cake. Not too sweet, but a nice light breakfast. I used skim milk which worked alright. Thank you!
  4. I think I may have screwed this up by using an 8" square pan. (I assumed the directions meant 9" square, which I don't have.) Now that I am re-reading this, I see it was a CAKE pan. Anyways, my cake turned out flat and a bit dry (probably because of the wrong size pan), however, the taste was great. I will definitely try again with the right size pan. Easy recipe. Thanks so much.
  5. good! I decided to mix in fruit as well. I used an 8 oz can of diced peaches, used juice and water combo for 2/3 cup or water. I used splenda in place of all the sugar requirements because my husband is diabetic. I thought it was quite moist and the peaches tasted really good with the topping. Thanks so much for posting!


  1. I made this earlier today, cut in two tablespoons of margarine to the Bisquick before adding in the liquids, and added a 15 oz. can of drained cut-up apricots to the batter. Also used some of the apricot liquid in place of half of the water. It came out very good; moist, tasty and easy.


I'm a stay-at-home mom in Arizona. To earn a little side money, I promote lingerie at private home showings. My favorite cookbook is the Better Homes and Gardens Cookbook. I inherited my grandmother's, and it's been a mainstay in my home. I love to try new recipes, but I have a lot of limitations as far as my husband's allergies (nuts, citrus, melons). I love recipes that let me sneak veggies into the kids without their knowledge!
