Jelly drop coffee cake
Linda Lilyquist
Hi…my husband's mom used to make a cake that my husband calls "jelly drop coffee cake." I never experienced this cake, SO I have to just go from his description. He says that it was a coffee cake with jelly dropped into it and baked w/a crunchy topping. I have experimented, BUT have not been able to duplicate. I thought that perhaps you may have a bisquick or other idea about this. This would have been in the 50's and 60's that he had this. THANKS!
Here is one I found, you might try.


1/2 c. chopped nuts
1/3 c. brown sugar
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
3 tbsp. butter
Mix until crumbly.

2 1/2 c. Bisquick mix
1/3 c. sugar
3 tablespoons butter, melted
1/4 c. milk
1/2 tsp. vanilla
1/2 tsp. almond extract Optional
2 eggs

1/4 cup of grape jelly

Combine batter ingredients.
Spread 1/2 of the batter in a greased square pan. Sprinkle with 1/2 of the streusel. Put in the rest of the batter. Sprinkle with the rest of the streusel. Drop 1/4 cup of grape jelly by the teaspoon onto the top. Bake for about 30 minutes.
