Very old Bisquick recipe
Heather
08/24/06
40 years or so ago I had a recipe for a quick coffee cake using Bisquick. I remember jam or preserves was spooned onto the batter and would bake into it. There was also brown sugar on the top. Does this ring a bell with anybody?

This may be the old classic Bisquick cherry swirl coffee cake:

BISQUICK - CHERRY SWIRL COFFEE CAKE

4 c. Bisquick mix
1/2 c. sugar
1/4 c. butter, melted
1/2 c. milk
1 tsp. vanilla
1 tsp. almond extract
3 eggs
1 (21 oz.) can cherry or apricot or blueberry pie filling

Heat oven to 350 degrees. Grease jelly roll pan, 15 1/2 x 10 1/2 x 1 inch or 2 squares pans, 9 x 9 x 1 inch.

Mix all ingredients except pie filling and glaze; beat vigorously for 30 seconds. Spread 2/3 of the batter (about 2 1/2 cups) in jelly roll pan or 1/3 of the batter (about 1 1/4 cups) in each square pan. Spread pie filling over batter (filling may not cover batter completely). Drop remaining batter by tablespoonful onto pie filling.

Bake until light brown, 20-25 minutes. Drizzle with glaze while warm. Serve warm or cool. 18 servings.

GLAZE:

1 c. powdered sugar
1-2 tbsp. milk

Beat sugar and milk until smooth and of desired consistency.

OR make the batter, omit the pie filling and handle with jam/preserves this way:

1/2 cup apricot preserves
1/2 cup peach, strawberry, or pineapple preserves

Topping:
2/3 cup light brown sugar, firmly packed
2 tablespoons flour
2 tablespoons butter
1/2 cup chopped walnuts or pecans

Spoon both preserves over the batter, then swirl through the batter with a knife. Mix topping ingredients with fork or fingers until crumbly and sprinkle evenly over batter. Bake at 400° for 25 to 30 minutes, until done. Cut into squares and serve while still warm.

Years ago I had a small recipe book that came inside of a Bisquick box. My children esp liked cinnimon peachy whirly gigs. They were small cinnimon rolls baked with canned peaches with the syrup thickened with cornstarch. My daughter wants to make them for her children and I cant find the recipe.

How about this microwave quickie?

Caramel-Pecan Coffee Cake
Serves: 2

Prep: 5 min
Microwave: 7 min
Stand: 1 min

How would you like to have a fresh-baked coffee cake, dripping with brown sugar caramel and pecans, on the table in less than 15 minutes? Here's the secret: use your microwave! It really is possible-and it's incredibly delicious too!

2 tablespoons butter or margarine
1/4 cup packed brown sugar
2 tablespoons chopped pecans
2 tablespoons light corn syrup
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 cup Original Bisquick
1/4 cup cold water

1. Place butter in 1-quart casserole. Microwave uncovered on High (100%) until melted, 20 to 30 seconds. Stir in brown sugar, pecans, corn syrup and cinnamon; spread evenly in casserole. Microwave
uncovered until bubbly, 45 to 60 seconds. Tilt casserole so brown sugar mixture runs to side; place 6-ounce juice glass in center of casserole (the glass prevents a doughy center- make sure it is microwave safe).
2. Mix Bisquick and water until soft dough forms. Drop dough by 6 spoonfuls onto brown sugar mixture. Place casserole on inverted plate in microwave oven. Microwave uncovered on Medium-high
(70%) 2 minutes; rotate casserole 1/2 turn. Microwave uncovered until wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean, 2 to 2 1/2 minutes longer.
3. Remove glass. Immediately invert on heatproof serving plate; let casserole stand 1 minute so caramel can drizzle over coffee cake. Serve warm.

I am looking for a similiar recipe book back in 1980 publication by BETTY CROCKER and titled CREATIVE RECIPES WITH BISQUICK.
A friend shared it with me, but of course, I
have to return it to her.
I enjoy baking with bisquick recipes and sharing them with neighbors and at the senior sites we attend.

Bisquick had a recipe that came in a promotional pamphlet inside the box. It tasted good but lost the recipe. Some of the ingredients I remember were shrimp, crab, bean sprouts, bisquick, flour, french cut beans, worchestershire sauce, soy sauce, baking powder/soda. When deep fried, it puff up.

I am looking for a strawberry cobbler recipe that my mom made in the 1960's. The crust was made from Bisquick, a can of beer and other ingredients. It seems like the batter was fairly runny and was poured over the fruit instead of dropped by the spoonful. Friends have suggested that my mom was just drinking beer while she cooked, but I remember the distinct flavor of the crust.
ellen
09/07/09
You have rude friends!
There are a bunch of Bisquick beer bread/ beer muffin/ beer biscuit recipes from that era, any of which could be dropped/poured over the fruit of choice. The addition of the beer gave the batter a yeasty, more "home made" flavor, it was thought. Here is a very simple one:

BEER BREAD

2 c. Bisquick
3 tbsp. sugar
1 c. beer (your choice)

In a mixing bowl, blend the Bisquick and sugar, then add the beer. Stir until well blended. Spoon the batter into a loaf pan or into individual muffin tins. Bake at 350 degrees for 20 to 30 minutes until golden brown.

Some folks use 3 cups of bisquick and add an egg.

Years ago when i was in middle school (this would have been about mid eighties) and i remember my mother making a Bisquik recipe for these tart-like things that were like sweet biscuits, and she would drop jelly in the middle of them before cooking. Please help since this was easily my favorite breakfast growing up and i would love to make it for my family.
Thank you,

Thank-you so very much!!I have been looking all over for the Betty Crocker peachy whirly gigs recipe. I even contacted the Betty Crocker company and they sent me a recipe that wasn't even close. I made this frequently when my kids were small, and it was a favorite. About a year ago my daughter asked me to make it again and I couldn't find the recipe. Thanks to you I can now surprise her on her upcoming birthday with this delicious dessert.
Thanks again.

Trying to find old Bisquick coffee cake recipe. Have seen many old ones that look great but my Mother used to make one that you heated up the streusel (butter, brown sugar, etc.) and then put it all over the cake after it was removed from the oven. Any ideas?
ellen
07/23/10
I will look, but this may be a no-show. Was there anything special about the cake layer? There was a vogue for a Bisquick oatmeal cake where you put the topping on and ran it back under the broiler in the late 60's and early 70's.
John
07/23/10
Thanks for getting back to me. Nothing special about the cake layer. The recipe said to poke holes into the cake after it was removed from the oven and drizzled all over the top. Definitely not Oatmeal. Had to be on the box in the mid-late 80's. I think streusel was just melted butter, brown sugar.

My aunt made a blueberry pudding cake or cobbler from a Bisquick recipe in the late 1950s and early 1960s. I lost the recipe several years ago and would love to have it again! It was more solid; not runny and I served it warm with ice cream.
ellen

It may have been made with fresh or frozen blueberries, not blueberry pie filling. This off -site recipe might suit:

www.cooks.com/rec/view/0,2371,153178-239206,00.html

A variation drops blueberry pie filling on top of the batter, juicier but not as juicy as the fruit on the bottom ones.

Coffee Cake-Microwave-Custard Cups
I believe that maybe the Classic Coffee Cake is the basic recipe that I am looking for. When I was in high school in the mid-80's, my friend's mother would make individual coffee cakes for us in custard cups. She would cook them in the microwave and we could dip them in melted butter and then in a sugar and cinnamon mixture. If you have any insight as to what the recipe and cooking times might....I would be thrilled and my husband and four kids would thank you.

Love your site. I'm looking for the cinnamon roll recipe that, I thought, was on the box. I thought you basically made biscuits and then rolled it out and put butter, cinnamon, and brown sugar on it. Then roll it, cut it, and bake it. I'm just don't remember if it was the same as the biscuit recipe or if the proportions for the dough part were different. It's not on the box now nor on the bisquick web site. Thanks in advance.

Looking for old recipe from Betty Crocker's Bisquick Cookbook. It was a small white cookbook with 7 mini cookbooks in one with step-by-step recipes. The recipe I'm looking for was for a coconut cake with no icing and then I would poke holes in it and drizzle confectioners sugar onto the top. Thanx in advance.

Bisquick Strawberry Swirl Coffee Cake w/struesel
I am looking for a coffee cake that was made with Bisquick, but you swirled strawberry jam through it and then sprinkled with streusel. It was from the late 80's or early 90's. I have tried several recipes, but they aren't as moist. I would love any help you can provide.

I'm having trouble finding an 80s Bisquick recipe called Jazzberry Muffins. Basically I remember using Bisquick, milk, sugar, and maybe oil to make the muffin batter. The batter was dropped into muffin tins and a tablespoon of jam/preserves was dropped into the center. After baking, each muffin was dipped into melted butter and then sugar. Easy to make and really good! Can you help me?

Carol, here is the traditional Bisquick sweet muffin recipe. Dip in butter and sugar to taste:

1 egg

2 cups Bisquick

8531; cup sugar

8532; cup milk

2 tablespoons vegetable oil

1/3 to 1/2 cup jam, stirred to loosen gel

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Prepare a 12 cup muffin pan.
Mix everything but the jam until just lumpy.
Fill cups, plop in the jam, swirl if so inclined. Bake at 400 degrees until golden brown, about 15 to 18 minutes.

Hello, Lindsay,

I would like to help with this Can you give me some additional info? Was the icing a brown sugar icing? Was the cake a standard white cake or with some oatmeal (the most likely candidate for this is the bisquick oatmeal cake with a broiled coconut icing made with brown sugar, sort of butterscotchish flavor). Was there coconut in the cake? Please write back.

Lynn, this might be it, though no garlic:

EASY ONE-DISH HAM BAKE

Makes 8 to 10 servings

1 bag (1 pound) frozen broccoli cuts, rinsed and drained
1 can (10 3/4 ounces) 98% fat-free condensed cream of mushroom soup
1 can (10 3/4 ounces) condensed Cheddar cheese soup
1 cup fat-free (skim) milk
3 cups cut-up cooked ham, chicken, turkey or beef
2 cups Reduced Fat Bisquick
1 1/2 cups skim milk

Heat oven to 450. Mix broccoli, soups, 1 cup milk and the ham in ungreased rectangular baking dish, 13x9x2 inches. Stir Bisquick and 1 1/2 cups milk in medium bowl until blended. Pour evenly over soup mixture. Bake uncovered 27 to 30 minutes or until light golden brown. Let stand 5 minutes before serving.

ellen
03/26/11
This is the 1930's shortcake recipe:

Strawberry Shortcake

2 cups Bisquick
3/4 cup cream
2 tablespoons sugar
butter

Add sugar to Bisquick. Stir in Cream and mix well. Turn dough onto lightly floured board and knead gently to smooth up (ellen's note, don't really knead it, just sort of pat it into place). Roll out 3/4 inch thick. For individual shortcakes cut with 3-inch cutter and bake. For one large shortcake, pat out 1/2 of dough in round 8-inch pan. Dot with butter. Place other half of dough on top. Bake in a hot oven 450 F. for 12 minutes. Split and place sweetened crushed strawberries or other fruit between layers and on top.

Years ago, Bisquick included a 50 year anniversary booklet in their box. One of the recipes had Bisquick, chopped shrimp, beans sprouts, french cut string beans, soy sauce, worchestershire sauce, milk, eggs and other ingredients. And all was mixed together and fried up into a puff. I made it one night and it was gone before the last batch was fried up. Lost the booklet though. I need a recipe similar to this tasty appetizer.

There are dozens of variations on this.

Bake at 375-400 for 25 to 30 minutes. Served with brown gravy or tomato gravy.

1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese (4 oz)

4 medium green onions, sliced (1/4 cup)

1 small cooking apple, peeled, chopped (1/2 cup)

1/2 cup Original Bisquick mix

1 cup milk

1/8 teaspoon pepper

2 eggs

1 Heat oven to 400F. Grease bottom and side of 9-inch pie plate with shortening. Sprinkle ham, cheese, onions and apple in pie plate.
2 In medium bowl, stir remaining ingredients until blended. Pour over ham mixture.
3 Bake uncovered 35 to 40 minutes or until knife inserted in center comes out clean. Let stand 5 minutes before serving.

ellen
09/30/11
This is a very typical recipe of the times and most recipes are very similar.

You make a biscuit dough with 2 1/2 cups Bisquick and roll or pat it out to between 1/4 and 1/2 inch thick, about 8x10.

Filling is made with 1 can of salmon (2 cups). Some de-skin and de-bone, some don't. Mix in 1/4 to 1/2 cup mayonnaise, 1 tbsp. lemon juice, or to taste, a finely chopped small onion is often added,a bit of salt, maybe chopped parsley. Some people use an egg instead of the mayonnaise.

Roll and bake about 30 minutes at 350.

Typically served with a creamy sauce, such as made from cream of celery or cream of mushroom soup, here is a home made sauce recipe.

2 Tbsp. butter
2 Tbsp. flour
2 cups whole milk
1/2 - 2/3 cup canned peas, drained (optional)

Lisa, there are many variations on this recipe, which is called "Crispy Chicken Stir Fry" on the web. This one is typical:

CRISPY CHICKEN STIR FRY
1/2 tsp. pepper
1 c. Bisquick baking mix
2 c. diced, uncooked chicken breast
2 eggs, slightly beaten
1/4 c. vegetable oil
3 carrots, cut diagonally into 1/2" pieces
1 green pepper, cut into strips
1 sm. onion, thinly sliced & separated into rings
1 (20 oz.) can pineapple chunks, drained

Lookiing for recipe for a cinnamon swirl bread made with Bisquick. The original pamphlet recipe book called for two loaves of bread, one the normal size, and one mini loaf for your child! I believe there was a vanilla glaze poured over the top of the loaves.
ellen
11/14/11
Jean, this will be the same as any of the Bisquick cinnamon swirl rolls, just baked in a loaf pan instead of cut into individual rolls. About 4 cups of Bisquick to make one regular and one mini, or 4 minis.

Hello, I am looking for a recipe that my mother had years ago--she passed away and we cannot find it anywhere. My aunt tried to make it from memory but it didn't turn out the way she remembered. It was made with a bisquick, milk and maybe egg base and then bulk sausage mixed with mayo--- either mixed in the bisquick base or layered on top, and then shredded cheese sprinkled on top or maybe added in. Not much to go on but we would really like to have the recipe to make.

It might be this old classic, adapted by Susan Wimmers:

Bisquick Sausage Squares from Susan Wimmers
Ingredients:
1 cup Bisquick mix
1/3 cup milk
4 tablespoons mayonnaise
1 pound Italian pork sausage
1/2 cup chopped onion
1 egg
2 cups grated Cheddar cheese
2 cans (4 oz size) chopped green chilies
Directions:
Stir Bisquick mix with milk and 2 Tbs. mayonnaise; spread into greased 13X9 pan. Saute
sausage and onion; drain fat, spread over Bisquick mix. Beat egg with remaining
mayonnaise, cheese and chilies. Spread over meat.
Bake at 375 for 25 minutes. Cut into one-inch squares.
Notes: I doubled the recipe and used one regular and one hot 1 lb sausage package and
left out the chilies.
Youll feel like you dont have enough dough to cover the pan. Push and pull to fill
bottom. Mine was very thin in places and even had a few small voids but it baked up
fine. Enjoy!

It was a dish that my mom used more as an appetizer and was cut into squares. I will try to talk to my aunt and get the exact measurments that she has(she has the ingredients just not the steps to prepare it). Thank you for the quick response and suggestions.
Karen
11/20/11
Hello, I spoke to my aunt and she gave me the ingredients with measurments.
2 cups bisquick
1/2 cup water

1/4 pound of bulk sausage
3/4 cup of mayo

paprika
shredded cheese

The only directions that she has are:
Mix the 2 cups of bisquick with the 1/2 cup of water to make a dough. Press that into a 9x13 dish.
Cook the sausage and cool. Mix in the 3/4 cup of mayo when cooled.
The part she did not have written down was if you cook the bisquick first and then layer the sausage on top or press the sausage into the dough. The next thing she has written is to cover with foil and bake for 20 min. Remove foil and sprinkle paprika and shredded cheddar cheese on top.
BTW: she tried it both ways already with cooking the bisquick dough first and then adding the sausage on top and baking for a little bit more and also pressing the sausage into the bisquick dough and baking it all together and she said neither of them seemed to come out right.
Any ideas or suggestions? I cannot find anything close doing a web search so hopefully you will have something helpful. Thanks again!

This may have been a grandma-created recipe, but here is an adaptation of a Betty Crocker recipe for veggie pizza, 10x15 pan, with a light vegetable coating- you might want more veggies:

It takes about 2 cups Bisquick plus 1/2 cup very hot water to make the crust.

1 package (8 oz) cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup sour cream

Mix together for a white sauce, or use 1 cup marinara

1 teaspoon dried dill weed OR Italian seasoning to taste
1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 cup small fresh broccoli florets
1/3 cup other veg to taste (onion, olive, canned mushrooms, etc)
1-2 plum (Roma) tomatoes, seeded, chopped
1/4 cup shredded carrot

3 cups shredded cheese
Parmesan to taste

1 Move oven rack to lowest position. Preheat oven to 450F. Grease pan.
2 Mix Bisquick and very hot water until soft dough forms. Press dough in pan, using fingers dipped in Bisquick; pinch edge to form 1/2-inch rim.
3 Bake 10 minutes. Spread pizza sauce over crust. Sprinkle with mozzarella cheese and Italian seasoning, add veggies. Bake 5 to 7 minutes or until crust is golden brown and cheese is bubbly.

What I do know is that it was a Velvet Crumb Cake recipe, split in two - filled with Raspberry Jam, then it was bathed in a custard and topped with whipped cream or something like that...would you be so kind as to find the name AND print the recipe for me?

Looking for an old recipe maybe 1960's or earlier. Used bisquick rolled thin, then spread with cream cheese, and I think cream cheese was mixed with grated lemon or orange peel, rolled up into a ring and then cut into ring (not completely) and turn each cut piece on it side, brush with honey & bake. It was so good, I believe it was called a "swedish tea ring".
ellen
02/21/12
Yes, this is a Bisquick take-off on the original "Swedish tea ring", even when made with Bisquick they usually had yeast added. This is the general direction for the shaping. I will look for a specific recipe.

Here is the basic dough without yeast:

Basic Sweet Roll Recipe

2 cups Bisquick
4 tablespoons sugar
1 egg
1/2 cup milk

Combine Bisquick and sugar. Beat egg, add milk, and combine with dry ingredients. Beat dough until smooth. Use for the following rolls and coffeecakes.

To make tea ring: Brown sugar, chopped nuts, powdered sugar, milk and cinnamon.

When the above dough is light, shape into 2 rectangular sheets about 1/4 inch thick. Brush with melted butter and sprinkle with brown sugar and cinnamon. Fruit can be substituted if you wish. Roll like a jelly roll and shape into rings. Place on greased baking sheet and cut with scissors at 1 inch intervals almost through ring. Turn slices slightly; cover and let rise until double in bulk. Bake at 350-375 degrees for 25-30 minutes. While warm, spread with icing made from powdered sugar and milk, medium consistency to spread, and sprinkle with chopped nuts.

Here is the Betty Crocker Bisquick recipe:

Swedish Tea Ring
Betty Crocker Recipe Card Library 1971
Come for Coffee, Card 3

1 package active dry yeast
1/2 cup warm water (105 to 115 degrees)
1 egg
1 tbsp granulated sugar
2 1/2 cups Bisquick baking mix
2 tbsp soft butter
1/3 cup brown sugar (packed)
1/3 cup raisins
2 tsp cinnamon
Quick Icing (below)

In large mixing bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water. Stir in egg, 1 tbsp granulated sugar and baking mix; beat vigorously. Turn dough onto floured surface. Knead until smooth, about 20 times. Roll into rectangle, 16x9 inches; spread with butter and sprinkle with mixture of 1/3 cup suagr, the raisins and cinnamon.
Roll up, beginning at wide side. Pinch edge of dough into roll to seal. With seam side down, shape dough into ring on greased baking sheet; pinch ends together. With scissors, make cuts 2/3 of the way through ring at 1-inch intervals. Turn each section on its side. Let rise in warm place (85 degrees) until double about 1 hour.
Heat oven to 375 degrees. Bake 15 minutes or until golden brown. Frost with Quick Icing. Serve warm.
Quick Icing: Mix 1 cup confectioners' sugar, 1 to 2 tsp warm water and 1/2 tsp vanilla until smooth.

Another poster said her Mom used this filling when she made the Tea Ring. Sounds great!

Walnut filling

I'm looking for the "Beef Bake" recipe that used to be on all the Bisquick boxes I remember buying in the late 90's. It seems to have disappeared from the current boxes. It was where you brown some ground beef, mix it with cream of mushroom, some garlic powder and frozen veggies, then pour a thin layer of Bisquick on the top. I can't remember the amounts/ratios. Do you remember this one?

This is the original, I think:

Beef Bake
By Shanna Shearon

Heat oven to 450

1 lb. ground chuck
2 C Bisquick
2 1/2 C milk
2 C frozen mixed vegetables (I use canned for softer veggies)
1/2 C onion, chopped
2 cans cream of mushroom soup (you can substitute cream of chicken for one or both cans)
1 t garlic salt

Cook beef and onion until brown. Drain. Put in ungreased 9x13 pan. Mix soup, 1 C milk, garlic salt and veggies with beef and onions. Mix Bisquick and 1 1/2 c milk and pour over beef mixture. Bake 30-35 minutes or until crust is brown.

This is pretty close, though upside down:

Preheat oven to 400.

2 cups Bisquick
2/3 cup water
1 1/2 teaspoon dried rosemary
Mix together, knead slightly if necessary, and spread in sprayed 9X13.

1 lb ground beef browned, drained
1 can cream of mushroom soup
1 T dried onions

Mix together and spread over dough.
Top with;
2/3 cup shredded cheddar

I am looking for an old Bisquick recipe in which you make a dough with Bisquick, line an 8" square pan with it, and mix sour cream, dry onion soup mix, and maybe an egg together and pour it over the crust. I think you bake it for around a half hour and cut it in to squares to serve with roast beef, for example. Does this ring a bell with anybody? Thanks.

Maybe you can adapt this 1977 recipe. A half recipe would be about right for an 8x8 pan:

Herbed tomato cheese bread

Prep time: 35 minutes

Cook time: 35 minutes

Serves 12

Ann Marie Hensley of Roseville lost an old Bisquick recipe that had a Bisquick layer on the bottom, a sour cream and cheese layer and a tomato layer. It was then baked. She says that everyone loved this simple-to-prepare dish.

Jeanne Ashley of Sacramento shares this recipe that she found in her Knudson Dairy Food Cookery published in 1977 and says its very good. This bread is great with hamburgers and steaks. You can save leftovers in foil, refrigerated. Pop in the oven to reheat.

INGREDIENTS

Sour cream topping

1 medium onion, minced
2 tablespoons butter
3/4 cup sour cream
1/3 cup mayonnaise
4 ounces grated cheddar cheese (about 1 cup)
3/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1/4 teaspoon leaf oregano
Pinch sage

Biscuit layer

2/3 cup milk
2 cups biscuit mix (such as Bisquick)
3 medium tomatoes, peeled and sliced 1/4-inch thick
Paprika

INSTRUCTIONS

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Butter a 13-by-9-inch baking dish.

For sour cream topping: Saut onion in butter until tender. Place onion in a bowl. Blend in remaining topping ingredients and set aside.

For biscuit layer: Stir milk into biscuit mix making a soft dough. Turn dough onto well-floured board and knead lightly 10 to 12 strokes. Pat dough over bottom of buttered baking dish, pushing dough up sides of dish to form a shallow rim. Arrange tomato slices over dough. Spoon on sour cream topping and sprinkle with paprika.

Bake 20 to 25 minutes. Let stand about 10 minutes before cutting.

Sandra, This thread is just for Bisquick recipes, not general lost recipes. Try Uncle Phaedrus at hungrybrowser.com.

A brown betty is a dessert made from fruit (usually apple, but also berries or pears) and sweetened crumbs, consisting of a baked pudding made with layers of sweetened and spiced fruit and buttered bread crumbs. It is usually served with a lemon sauce or whipped cream. What was special about this one?

Sandra Taylor

I apologize. Yes, once my friends father tried my homemade banana cream pie he asked if I could make Aunt Bells homemade Brown Betty that his grandma used to make. He gave me a box full of his mothers and grandmothers cook books. The recipe wasn't in any of those cook books but I figure it's the least I can do in return find and make this recipe for him.

Or this very basic one

Tuna Rollups

TUNA ROLLS
Biscuit dough or Bisquick
2 cans cream of celery soup or mushroom
2 cans tuna

Make biscuit dough. Add one can of soup to tuna, mix well. Spread dough out as if making cinnamon rolls. Spread layer of tuna mixture on dough. Roll up and cut as if cinnamon rolls. Place on ungreased baking sheet. Cook at 450 degrees for 8 to 10 minutes or until light brown. Use 1 can of soup diluted as a gravy.

Some onion, parsley and a half cup of frozen peas or chopped broccoli would improve a bit..

1 cup jam (such as strawberry, raspberry or blueberry) or 1 cup preserves (such as strawberry, peach, raspberry or blueberry)

Mix Bisquick, oats and brown sugar in large bowl. Cut in butter, using fork or pastry blender, until mixture is crumbly.
Press half of the crumbly mixture in pan.

But over the years she lost it. She said there was no cheese or cream, and she thought it was called "no-peek" as the key is to have it properly covered for the 2 hours. I made it last night, it didn't taste like hers but the chicken was were moist and tender. I would just like to have the original recipe to make sure I have the correct ingredients and procedures.

Hi! Well I did not see my recipe request so here it goes: I had a frieind back in Georgia, whose mom used to make in a 9 x 13 pan a Bisquick cream cheese bar recipe. It had a bisquick crust bottome ( maybe bisquick, sugar, butter?) and then cream cheese but not sure what else, then the rest of the crust was just rolled between her hands to creat crumbles she sprinkled on top. THis would be a recipe she made in the early 80's so could be an older recipe from the 70's but was awesome and cannot find it on the web. Thank you for any help!

I am looking for an old recipe that I think may have been called "Chicken Roll" It seems very similar to a couple other ones I saw on your site, where you make a dough with the Bisquick, sprinkle cooked cup-up chicken, over it, roll it up and bake. But I think something else was added before rolling it up. And I think cream of mushroom soup was served on top after it was baked. It was a childhood favorite of mine and I would love to have that old recipe!

3 tbsp. melted butter
1/2 c. milk

Press into ungreased pan and bake for 15-20 minutes at 400 degrees.

I have a recipe that uses a bisquick dough like that used for cinnamon rolls, to make "apple dumplings". I need to make this 3 days ahead of serving. Should I bake then freeze the recipe, or can I freeze it then bake it? Thanks.
ellen
11/19/12
Marilyn, I don't think you will be happy with the results either way. I would try freeze-then-bake ahead of time. Then consider an apple cobbler or apple crisp cooked fresh day of.

My grandma is looking for a cake recipe from the 80's that had a coconut frosting on it that was put in the broiler.

This is a classic with an oatmeal cake and a broiled icing:

Topping for 9x13

3/4 cup flaked coconut

1/2 cup packed brown sugar

1/3 cup chopped pecans or walnuts

1/4 cup butter or margarine, melted

3 tablespoons milk

mix all topping ingredients until well blended. Spread topping over hot cake. Broil cake with top 6 inches from heat 1 to 2 minutes or until top is golden and bubbly. Cool 30 minutes. Serve warm.

This can be put on the Bisquick classic velvet crumb cake, recipe is above- 02/01/11. That recipe is for 8x8- increase times 1 1/2 to make 9x13.

ellen
02/01/13
This recipe was in:
1960 Woman's Day Collector's Cookbook

I don't have that one. This is a tasty variation:

8" pan

CRUMB TOPPING:

2/3 cup sugar
1 teaspoon fresh grated lemon or orange peel
1/8 teaspoon salt
8 tablespoons unsalted butter softened
1-3/4 cups bisquick
2 teaspoons lemon or orange juice

2 cups Bisquick
1 1/2 cups sugar
4 teaspoons grated lemon or orange peel
1/2 cup vegetable oil
2 tablespoons fresh lemon or orange juice
1 cup sour cream
1 large egg
1 egg yolk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Confectioners sugar for dusting

Mix the topping ingredients into largish pieces. Butter generously an 8 inch square baking dish.

Preheat the oven to 325 degrees.
Works best with an electric beater. Place the bisquick, peel and sugar in the mixing bowl, mix gently. With mixer running at low speed, add egg, oil, sour cream, eggs, lemon or orange juice, vanilla and beat on medium high speed until light, around 1 minute. Spread batter into even layer in the dish.

Break apart crumb topping into large pea sized pieces and spread in even layer over batter.

Bake 35 to 40 minutes, until and wooden toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.
Cool at least 30 minutes.
Dust with confectioners sugar just before serving.

The applesauce bisquick cake listed on 1/13/2010 above turned out horrible. It's very dry and tough.

It is not overdone...watched it very closely. Disappointed and wishing I would have tried the pound cake recipe instead. Total waste of ingredients and time.

ellen

Sorry it did not work for you. This loaf seems to go differently with different cooks. Not a Betty Crocker original; you probably would indeed have been happier with the pound cakes.

I'm looking for an old Chicken Pot Pie recipe my mom used to make. All I remember is that she used to stew the chicken to make a broth, then shred the chicken and mix with vegetables then put in a two-crust casserole made with Bisquick. She then served it in a bowl and ladled the broth on top of the pot pie. It didn't have any cream of mushroom or cream of chicken in the mix - just plain chicken and veggies. It was very healthy and low fat, and ever so delicious!!

This is Betty Crocker's own recipe for extra easy pizza. To convert for burger, fry up 1/3 to 1/2 pound in place of the pepperoni:

Prep Time 15 min
Total Time 30 min
Servings 8

Ingredients

1 1/2
cups Original Bisquick mix

1/3
cup very hot water

1
can (8 ounces) pizza sauce

1
package (3 1/2 ounces) sliced pepperoni

1/2
cup sliced fresh mushroom

1/2
cup chopped bell pepper

1 1/2
cups shredded mozzarella cheese (6 ounces)

Save $$$ on your favorite brands

1 Heat oven to 450F. Grease 12-inch pizza pan. Stir together Bisquick mix and very hot water; beat 20 strokes until soft dough forms.
2 Press dough in pizza pan. Spread pizza sauce over dough. Top with remaining ingredients.
3 Bake 12 to 15 minutes or until crust is golden brown and cheese is bubbly.

Expert Tips

For a light, tender crust, use very hot water and stir only 20 times. Stirring the dough too much will make the crust tough.

Make this extra-easy pizza an extra-cheesy pizza. Leave off the pepperoni, mushrooms and bell pepper, and top instead with the mozzarella cheese, 2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese and 1/2 cup shredded Cheddar cheese.

Im looking for a cake recipe what was on the side of the Bisquick box. It was a buttery tasteing cake and you would pour it into a 9x13 pan. We always topped it with strawberries. It was not the type of cake you used with frosting. Kind of looked more like corn bread than cake but it was not corn bread. Thank you in advance if you can help me find this recipe.

BISQUICK PAN SHORTCAKE
2 1/3 c. Bisquick
3 tbsp. sugar
3 tbsp. melted butter
1/2 c. milk

Press into ungreased 8x8 pan and bake for 15-20 minutes at 400 degrees.

This was on the side of the box. If it is too thin, you may want to double the recipe for a 9x13 pan.

Adding 2 eggs makes it more cakey.

my sister used to make a Bisguik coffee cake in the 1970's that had a separate brown sugar "crust" that you sprinkled over the top before baking, but which then sunk to the bottom of the cake while baking, making a nice lightweight coffee cake (in a 9x12" pan, I think) with a crunchy bottom. It was sort of like an upside-down Drake's cake. The recipe was on the outside/back of Bisquik boxes for many years but I cannot find it anymore, and I don't think my sister wil remember. Any ideas? Thanks! ~Ken

What your sister may have done was the variation of the recipe above where you put some batter in the pan, put on 1/2 the topping, then put in the rest of the batter and the topping. Try it, it might do.

My Nana had a signature birthday cake that she made for me. It was a dense, moist, yellow layer cake made with Bisquick and no one in the family has her recipe. I believe that it was on the box at one time. This is a simple layer cake to be frosted as the baker chose, no topping and nothing mixed in.

I am looking for a recipe that was on the bisquick box in the 70's. it was taco squares and made with a bisquick crust in a 9x13 pan. There was no mayo in it. When it came out of the oven you put lettuce, tomato etc on. Can anyone help me with this recipe?
ellen
09/15/13
The traditional "taco squares" recipe with Bisquik is the one with the mayo and/or sour cream. The one that suggests you put the lettuce, tomatoes, etc on top is Impossible taco pie, it takes a double recipe to make a 9x13 pan. This recipe is among those in the impossible pie sections of the recipe box on this site.

Or it might have been this one:

Ingredients:

Serves: 8- 9x13 pan

Yield:

1

taco bake

Units: US | Metric

1 lb lean ground beef
1 medium onion, chopped (1/2 cup)
1 (1 ounce) package old el paso taco seasoning mix
1 (16 ounce) can tomato sauce
1 (15 1/4 ounce) can green giant whole kernel corn
2 cups shredded cheddar cheese (8 ounces) or 2 cups processed American cheese (8 ounces)
2 cups original Bisquick baking mix
1 cup milk
2 eggs
sour cream
chopped tomato
shredded Lettuce

Directions:

1
Heat oven to 325F Grease rectangular pan, 13- x 9- x 2-inches.
2
Cook ground beef and onion in 10-inch skillet, stirring frequently, until beef is brown; drain. Stir in dry seasoning mix, tomato sauce, and corn. Spoon into pan; sprinkle with cheese. Stir Bisquick mix, milk and eggs until smooth. Pour over beef mixture.

looking for a recipe from the 80's. It was muffins made with bisquik and either applesauce that I replaced with bananas ... or vice-versa. It began with a little butter and brown sugar that you melted in the bottom of muffin tins. then you put the batter on top of the melted sugar-butter and bake. once out of oven, I'd lay a cookie sheet on top of the muffin pan and flip it over. Delicious carmely muffins would drop out. I can't find the recipe anywhere. Does anyone have it?

It sounds similar to praline biscuits-

PRALINE BISCUITS
1/2 c. butter
1/2 c. brown sugar, packed
36 pecan halves
2 c. Bisquick mix
Ground cinnamon to taste
1/3 c. milk
1/3 c. applesauce

Use muffin liners. Place 2 teaspoons butter, 2 teaspoons brown sugar and 3 pecan halves in each of 12 muffin cups, 2 1/2" x 1 1/4". Sprinkle cinnamon in each cup; heat in oven until melted. Mix baking mix, applesauce and milk until dough forms; beat 20 strokes. Spoon onto mixture in each cup. Bake 10 minutes. Invert on serving plate. Makes 12 biscuits.

Heat oven to 450 (hot). Mix 1 cup Bisquick, 1/3 cup milk, 1 cup grated Swiss cheese or other sharp cheese with fork. Beat 15 strokes. Knead gently 10 times to smooth up. Roll around on board lightly dusted with Bisquick. Roll out 1/48243; thick. Cut into star shapes (or other shape) with cooky cutter. Sprinkle with paprika, caraway seeds, celery seeds, garlic salt, or sesame seeds, etc. Bake 8 to 10 min. Serve warm. Makes 1 1/2 doz.

4 cups Bisquick
1/4 cup sugar

1/2 cup potato flakes
2 eggs, beaten
3 Tablespoons oil
12 ounces beer, room temperature

Topping:
2 sticks butter, melted
2 cups light brown sugar, packed
1 1/4 teaspoons cinnamon

In a large bowl, mix Bisquick, sugar, dry milk and potato flakes. In a small bowl, mix eggs, oil, and beer. Pour liquid into center of dry ingredients and mix. Spread into an oiled 17 x 11 x 1 pan (this is bigger than a 9x13, can be called a lasagna pan). Let batter stand for 10 minutes. Preheat oven to 350 and make topping.

Combine topping ingredients and spread half of topping over the surface of batter. Bake 15 minutes at 350, second shelf from the top of oven. Spread remaining topping to uncovered areas of batter. Bake 5 - 10 additional minutes.

The oldest chocolate Bisqick cookie I have (1933) is this one:

Chocolate Yummies
2 squares unsweetened chocolate
1/4 cup margarine
1 1/2 cup Bisquick
3/4 cup sugar
1 egg
1/2 cup milk
1 tsp. vanilla
1 1/3 cup coconut

Melt over low heat chocolate and margarine. Combine Bisquick and sugar. Stir in egg, milk, chocolate mixture and vanilla; blend well. Fold in coconut. Drop by spoonful onto ungreased cookie sheet. Bake at 375 for 12 to 14 minutes. Cool, then frost.

In the 50's it was very common to sub Dutch cocoa for the chocolate squares, that would be 3 level tablespoons unsweetened cocoa and 1 tablespoon butter, margarine or shortening for every 1-ounce unsweetened baking chocolate.

I will keep looking-

Pineapple upside down cake
I'm looking for the Velvet Crumbcake recipe upside down pineapple cake. I've found the main recipe but how do you turn it into pineapple upside down cake? Thank you
ellen
05/10/14
This is very simple.

Heavily spray the cake pan or 10 inch pie plate.
Pack in the brown sugar. I like almost a 1/2 inch layer.
Place the drained put not dry fruit. Usually with pineapple rings, a cherry is placed in each ring, and sometimes around the vacancies also. With crushed pineapple, an excellent choice for easy cutting. just place the cherries according to the number of pieces you will cut.
When it has baked, run a knife around the edge, and turn out onto a heat proof plate while it is still hot, leave the pan over while it comes loose. The syrup that forms is scalding hot!!! Be careful.

Traditionally, the topping is:
about 1 cup brown sugar
1 (20 ounce) can sliced pineapple
10 maraschino cherries, halved
maybe some walnuts

But other happy combinations are apricot halves or peach slices, almond slices and bits of candied ginger; sliced pears with pecan bits; sliced plums with blueberries.

Hello Ellen! I have been searching for some time for the Bisquick pizza recipe in the little cookbook that came with Bisquick. The recipe is from the 50's to the 60's I believe it was the first (or one of the first) pizza recipes. Savory and delicious! I would appreciate your help, Thank you!!

Diane, Bisquick pizza
One pizza- 12 inch
4 6 inch pizzas

1 1/2 cup(s) Bisquick
1/3 cup(s) water boiling

Preparation

Thoroughly preheat oven 450. Spray cookie sheet with cooking spray. Stir Bisquick & water until soft dough forms, about 20 strokes.
One pizza- 12 inch
4 6 inch pizzas Pat out circle(s) on cookie sheet, using fingers dusted with Bisquick mix; pinch edge to form 1/2-inch rim. Spread sauce & toppings on dough. Bake 9-11 minutes for small or 12-15 for large, until crusts are golden brown.
Boiling water makes crust more chewy & flavorful.

Typical topping:

1 can (8 ounces) pizza sauce
1 package (3 1/2 ounces) sliced pepperoni
1/2 cup sliced fresh mushroom
1/2 cup chopped bell pepper
1 1/2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese (6 ounces)

Fancy it up:
add 1/4 cup cornmeal to the Bisquick before adding the water, increase the water by 2 tablespoons

1 jar (8-10 oz) prepared pesto sauce
1 plum (Roma) tomato, thinly sliced
2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese (8 oz)
1/2 cup shredded Parmesan cheese
1/4 cup thinly sliced fresh basil leaves
1 tablespoon olive oil (brushed on crust)

Hi Ellen, I'm looking for a Bisquick recipe from the 80's for a Pumpkin Bar that had a streusel topping with walnuts. There was no cream cheese in the recipe nor any frosting. Thank you--hope you've heard of this recipe.

Could not find the exact recipe, but this recipe for pumpkin spice muffins could be adapted- baked in a flat pan, more streusel, nuts added-

PUMPKIN SPICE MUFFINS
1/2 c. pumpkin
1/2 c. milk
1 egg
2 c. Bisquick
1/3 c. sugar
1/2 tsp. nutmeg
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
/4 tsp. ginger
Combine pumpkin, milk and egg with fork. Add dry ingredients and stir until moist. Sprinkle streusel topping on top of each muffin before baking. Bake in a preheated oven at 400 degrees for 10 to 15 minutes.

STREUSEL TOPPING:
1 tbsp. Bisquick
2 tbsp. sugar
1/4 tsp. cinnamon
2 tsp. butter
Mix together to sprinkle on top of muffins.

You would need quite a bit more topping for the bars- 2-3 times.

This recipe could be adapted to Bisquick by substituting it for the flour.

I am in search of a recipe using Bisquick and Spam. I am dating this recipe from the late 1960 to the 1970. Bisquick was mixed and put into a 9 x 13 pan, mayonnaise was mixed with mustard, , American cheese and slices of Spam were inserted into the the Bisquick mixture. I would love to surprise my sisters with this meal from our childhood. My mom use to make this dish, and was searching for it , but sadly died suddenly. Thank you.

The recipes I could find with these ingredients had rge Spam on the bottom or mixed into the gough. One was from the 30's! Was this mixed, lyered, cheese on top? more info would help.

The mayo dough Bisquick is first put forward in 1922 in the "Bisquick cookbook" with a recipe Bisquick called cavatzone, or "baked meat pie", but the filling for this was made with ground beef or pork, Swiss cheese and Parm. Is it possible the Spam with American cheese was your mom's variation on the recipe?

For an 8x8 pan, the Bisquick layer is made with 2 cups Bisquick, 1/4 cup mayo and 2/3-3/4 cup milk. 1 pound meat, 4 ounces shredded cheese.

Scott, it would help if you could tell me more, for example, is it a biscuit topping like the one below, or all mixed together, etc- you can write back.

Also, this cookbook comes up for sale from time to time on EBay. Moves can be very inconvenient, eh?

OK, this is basically creamed tuna with biscuits on top, and this will be pretty close:

Tuna layer
1/4 cup Crisco (or butter)
1/4 cup flour Bisquick
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
2 cups milk
Make a standard white sauce with these ingredients. Melt fat over medium-low heat; blend in Bisqick, salt, and pepper. Stir and cook for about 2 minutes, or until smooth and bubbly. Gradually stir in milk while stirring constantly. Continue cooking, stirring constantly, until mixture thickens and begins to bubble.

1 can (about 7 ounces) tuna, drained
1/2 to 1 cup chopped broccoli (small box frozen chopped)- I would thaw frozen, or partially precook fresh
1/4 cup Parmesan

Add drained tuna, broccoli, and cheese to hot sauce, stir smooth.

Standard 2 cup Bisquick biscuit recipe, cut into biscuits. Roll to 1/2-inch thickness; cut with lightly floured 2-inch biscuit cutter.

Grease casserole pan, pour in tuna mix, bake about 25 minutes in preheated 350 oven; top with biscuits and return to oven, Bake about 15 minutes or until biscuits are golden brown.

Hey Rothenburger, I actually saw a recipe like this while searching for Scott's, but went right past it because it was not what I was looking for- so I will see what I can do.

This is similar, only some mom added some pimento and cheesed up the mushroom soup instead of using two soups.

SAUCY TUNA BAKE
2 c. Bisquick baking mix
1 c. shredded cheddar cheese (about 4 oz.)
1/2 c. cold water
1 (6 1/2 oz.) can tuna, drained
1 (2 1/4 oz.) can sliced ripe olives, drained (about 1/2 c.)
1/2 c. chopped celery
1/4 c. chopped onion
1 (2 oz.) jar diced pimiento, drained
1 (10 3/4 oz.) can condensed cream of mushroom soup
1/4 c. milk

Heat oven to 425 degrees. Grease square 9"x9"x2" pan. Mix baking mix, 1/2 cup of the cheese and the water until soft dough forms; beat vigorously 20 strokes. Pat dough in pan with floured hands, pressing 1/2" up sides.

Mix tuna, olives, celery, onion, pimiento and 1/4 cup of the soup; spread over dough. Bake until edges are light brown, about 15 minutes.

Heat remaining soup, remaining 1/2 cup cheese and the milk over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until hot. Serve over casserole. 6 to 8 servings.
