Some Things are just Goooooooooooooooooooooood!

 Having been a child at the end of the 20th Century, I grew up in the typical family, that loved the convenience of Modern Food Technology. We had a microwave, We ate Kraft Cheese n Macaroni, and best of all , the boxed cake mix.  This recipe which, has been one of my favorites since I can remember, was the predecessor to Duncan Hines, & Betty Crocker & will always have a special place in my...Belly! ~Chris

Bisquick Velvet cake (coffee cake)?

Coffee cake that was on the Bisquick box years ago. Maybe called Velvet Cake
  • This came from the side of a Bisquick box, but I must admit it is about 30 yrs. old or better. My grandmother used to make this cake often because it was fast and my grandfather loved coconut. It is really "velvety" in texture and you'll love this too! This recipe is still seen on boxes of Bisquick called Velvet Crumb Cake ...

    1 1/2 cups Bisquick baking mix
    1/2 cup sugar
    1 egg
    1/2 cup milk
    2 tablespoons shortening (butter or margarine)
    1 teaspoon vanilla
    Broiler TOPPING
    1/2 cup flaked coconut
    1/3 cup packed brown sugar
    1/4 cup chopped nuts
    2 tablespoons milk
    3 tablespoons butter or margarine
