I have been making this for forty years, but with dairy! It is delicious! These are my changes: I always add a couple of dashes of cinnamon to the batter for a better color and zip. I add more sugar because I like a sweeter dough. We love the streusel topping, so I always make way more of that and also put walnuts or pecans in. Finally, these are GREAT as mini-muffins or regular muffins. They look spectacular but only take a couple of minutes to make. Read More

There is one major problem. Bisquick IS NOT DAIRY FREE!!!! It has an Orthodox Union DAIRY hescher which means it contains milk whey and proteins in it. Read More

My roommates and I made this tonight for dessert. It was really delicious! My only complaint is that it was a little bit dry but it was a nice way to use bisquick in a way other than pancakes or biscuits. It was also pretty affordable for a college budget. I would definitely recommend! Read More

I have made this before and its wonderful. Just a note. One of the reviewers claims there is dairy in bisquick. There is not. My husband is lactose intolerant so we are very careful. There is nothing in the ingredients that would signal there is any dairy in it. Read More

This was good but I didn't read all of the reviews or I would have been aware that it turns out pretty dry. I would make this again but next time I will add some applesauce to the batter. Also I folded in blueberries after mixing the other ingredients- it's a nice variation. Read More

Very good... too bad it isn't gluten free as well. Good thing I made it before my sister and brother were gluten free just dairy free. But I would definitely recommend this to anybody who is just dairy free. One change: We don't like soy milk so we substituted with vanilla rice milk. It was still good! Read More

I played around with this and it turned out pretty good. I would recommend apple sauce for a moister cake. I like a sweet batter also as another member suggested. I used Krusteaz brand pancake mix and added an additional 2/3 cup of white sugar. I also added cinnamon to the batter as well. Instead of using soy milk I used 2/3 cup of sugar free vanilla coffee creamer and 1/4 cup of regular milk. I also added 1 Tbl of vanilla for more flavor. Flavor was really good I only wished I had included the apple sauce also. This is a keeper. Read More

Good recipe. I used Stevia in place of sugar & added 1/2 cup of pumpkin 1/2 cup applesauce & raisins to batter. I exchanged the soy milk for a little water & plain yogurt. Enjoyed it for breakfast this morning:) Read More

Easy to make tasty cumbly topping but as others have remarked the cake portion is a bit on the dry side even with added yogurt and vanilla extract.:( Tonight I have added 1/3 cup crushed pineapple 2 bananas 2 tbsp greek yogurt and a tsp of vanilla extract so we'll see if that loosens up the batter a bit.
