This coffee cake that uses Bisquick® is even better than if bought at the bakery. It took me a while to get this recipe just right.

  • Combine baking mix, milk, sugar, egg, and cinnamon in bowl; mix well. Spread into the bottom of the prepared pan.

  • Mix baking mix, brown sugar, butter, and cinnamon together in a separate bowl using a fork or pastry blender until crumbly. Spread topping mix over cake batter; drag a butter knife across the top as if making a tic-tac-toe board several times.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, about 25 minutes.

Cook's Notes:

You can substitute water for milk, if desired.

You can use an 8-inch or 9-inch square pan.

I made this incredibly easy cake for a potluck and it was devoured! I like that it isn't loaded with sugar. I'm definitely making this part of my "go-to" recipes. Read More

My mom used to make Bisquick coffee cake when I was a kid. I used to love it. This recipe was ok except for the cake being more dry than I remember. Anyone ever add any oil to make it more moist? Oh, I did add 2 teas of vanilla to this recipe. Read More

I make this often. The recipe used to be on the bisquick box. I also learned to DOUBLE the topping mix! It's so much better. Also be generous with the oil to make it moist. Read More
