I don't usually make coffee cake very often...maybe two or three times a year. That has changed lately as I have been using up various items in my pantry. This fun coffee cake uses Bisquick and instant vanilla pudding; what a fun combo!
3 Berry Coffee Cake
3/4 cup sugar plus 3 Tbls, divided
1/4 cup cornstarch
3 cups frozen 3 berry combo from Costco (use raspberries, blueberrie or whatever you have on hand)
2 cups bisquick mix
2/3 cup milk
2 Tbls oil
1 small pkg instant vanilla pudding
2 Tbls sugar
1/4 cold butter
In a saucepan, combine 3/4 cup sugar and cornstarch. Add berries and bring to a boil over medium. Boil for a few minutes, stirring constantly until thick and glossy. Remove from heat and allow to cool. In a mixing bowl, combine biscuit mix, mik, eggs, oil and remaining 3 Tbls sugar. Mix well. Spread 2/3 of this mixture in a greased 9 X 13 pan. Cover with berry mixture. Top with remaining 1/3 of batter. In a small bowl, combine pudding mix, 2 Tbls sugar and cut in cold butter with a fork or a pastry blender. Sprinkle over batter. Baker 350 for 35-40 minutes.
On a side note, I made these brownies for Wednesday's dessert. They were just your regular homemade brownie recipe, but I put milk chocolate chips on top before I baked them. It made the kids' eyes get big to see the "special" dessert.
