Coffee Cake Basic Baking Mix Recipe

Quick and easy, this coffee cake can be in the oven in under 10 minutes. It's ideal for those times when you need a last minute addition to a meal or when you need something to take to a potluck. 

Feel free to experiment. Add nuts, sunflower seeds, switch out the vanilla for almond, lemon or rum flavouring. Use caramel sauce instead of jam. The recipe is meant to be a basic canvas for you to work with -- enjoy the bit of sweet. 


2 cups Bisquick or use our “Homemade Biscuit Mix
2/3 cup water or 2/3 cup milk
1 egg
2 tablespoons sugar
½ teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Jam – several teaspoons to dot the top of the cake (optional)

Topping  (or use our “Strudel Topping Mix” )
1/3 cup “Homemade Biscuit Mix
1/3 cup brown sugar
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
2 tablespoons butter


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Grease a deep pie plate or 8"x8" square pan with Baking Release
  3. Mix dry ingredients in a bowl. 
  4. Mix water, egg and vanilla together in a cup. Pour into dry ingredients. Mix by hand until ingredients are just incorporated. It will be a fairly stiff dough. Spread in baking dish.
  5. Optional step: dot top of dough with a few teaspoons of jam 
  6. Mix topping ingredients with a fork or pastry mixer until crumbly or use our Strudel topping mix (about 1-1/2 cups) 
  7. Spread topping mix over dough and drag a butter knife through it like you were making a tic-tac-toe board several times. This will swirl the topping and the jam (if used) into the cake dough. 
  8. Bake for 25 minutes or until inserted toothpick comes clean.  Let cool in pan for 10 minutes before turning out on a serving plate.
