  1. Not for me. Pretty was only good where the chocolate was swirled.
  2. Kit - another huge winner in my cookbooks! I served this to members of our adult Bible class and it went over famously! I used the Heart Healthy Bisquick Mix and 1% Milk but those were the only changes! Nice coffee cake that is not heavy nor overly sweet - just a perfect blend of flavors with the butter, coffee and chocolate chips! Thanks dear friend for sharing yet another HIT with me in 123 Hits tag game!
  3. This was very good! I used macadamia nuts and put cinnamon on top. The next time I will double the coffee/chocolate mixture.
  4. Love this cake Kitten. So fast and easy to make. What a great butter taste, mixed with hints of chocolate and coffee. My dh doesn't eat nuts, so I subed with dairy milk chips, wow. I wish I could give you 6*'s. The cake is light and moist, not too sweet, has lovely height, texture and flavor.
  5. I had some LF Bisquick that I needed to use up so I went looking for a great recipe... and I found one!! Very moist cake - not too sweet - just perfect for a coffee cake. My only changes, LF Bisquick and I used 1% milk. Brought the leftovers to work because I might eat the whole pan for breakfast!! Thanks Kittencal!
