Breakfast Cake / Bisquick Coffee Cake

 Cake Ingredients:

  • 2 cups baking mix (such as Bisquick®)
  • ⅔ cup milk
  • 2 tablespoons white sugar
  • 1 egg
  • ¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon


  • ⅔ cup baking mix (such as Bisquick®)
  • ⅔ cup brown sugar
  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon

Directions Instructions

  • Step 1: Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Grease a deep 9-inch pie pan (see note below).
  • Step 2: Combine baking mix, milk, sugar, egg, and cinnamon in bowl; mix well. Spread into the bottom of the prepared pan.
  • Step 3: 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.
  • Step 4: Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, about 25 minutes.

Notes: We don't like the cake to be as thick as is called for in the recipe. If the whole family is home and we want a lot, we double the recipe and put it in a 11x13 pan. But generally we can single it and use an 11x7 pan.
