Bisquick Apple Coffee Cake
Bisquick Apple Coffee Cake

Bisquit Coffee Cake with Apples is a delicious (and easy) breakfast or brunch. A brown sugar cinnamon crumble topping adds extra sweetness. Perfect for serving with a hot cup of coffee!

A favorite family ritual growing up was this Sunday morning apple coffee cake. My dad made it for his six greedy kids and we all asked him to layer the brown sugar sprinkles on top.

Dad used biscuit for this coffee cake, a baking mix that was popular then and is still popular today. You don’t have to worry about baking soda or baking soda as the mix comes with its own leavening.

Then add slices of peeled, tart green apples to the batter and top with a brown sugar crumble topping, a few dabs of butter and bake!

Given the size of our family, my dad would usually double the recipe and bake it in an 8″ x 13″ Pyrex pan.

It was then and still is one of my favorite coffee cakes of all time.
