Quickest Everyday Bisquick Cake

Filed Under:

Share This:

In one of our What We’re Cooking and Eating Now episodes, Stacie mentions discovering a Bisquick Apple Coffee Cake recipe at Simply Recipes. She found it while searching for a super quick recipe one night when she desperately wanted cake — but didn’t want to work hard to make one. The recipe was a revelation.

(Though, side note: If you make it, know that Stacie’s entire family thought it needed significantly more sugar to taste more like cake and less like a fluffy cake-like pancake.)

Inspired by the act of making a cake batter in one bowl in just five minutes, we stared experimented with making cakes using Bisquick. Like the recipe that Stacie followed on Simply Recipes, most recipes we found online were for coffee cake, but we wanted something more classic: an everyday cake that you can frost with a tub of store-bought icing and serve as a treat on any given weeknight.

When we couldn’t find one, we made it ourselves!

We think the best version of this Bisquick cake is flavored with lemon zest and topped with lemon frosting, but you can certainly leave the zest out and use classic buttercream or chocolate frosting. However you go about it, this recipe is a thing of weeknight baking beauty for anytime you want your cake and don’t want to work hard for it too.
