I have been to a lot of different groups and recipe web sites. However, I have been unable to find a recipe for a pound cake made with Bisquick. I have seen ones with cream cheese, orange flavoring, etc. I just want a plain pound cake recipe made with Bisquick. I hope someone in this group can help me. Thanks in advance.
*** May substitute 48 packets Equal sweetener for the diabetic recipe
Combine baking mix, sugar cornstarch and lemon peel. Mix in yogurt, melted butter, eggs, lemon juice, milk and flavorings until blended. Spoon mixture into well-sprayed 9 or 12-cup Bundt cake pan or 9 x 5-inch loaf pan. Bake in preheated 350°F oven 40 to 45 minutes or until wooden pick inserted near center comes out clean. Let cake cool in pan 5 minutes. Remove and cool completely on wire rack.
VARIATION: Lemon Poppy Seed Cake - Prepare cake as directed above, adding 3 tablespoons poppy seed to dry ingredient mixture. Complete recipe as directed.
Thank you so much for posting that Bisquick Pound Cake recipe. Like I said I have been looking everywhere for one. When I emailed the Betty Crocker Company they told me they didn't have a recipe for plain pound cake. I am going to print this up and make sure I don't lose it. Thanks again!

You are most welcome. I would watch the sugar in this recipe. Some people I have given it to have reduced the sugar to 1 1/2 cups and had great results. Play with it a bit and see what happens. As far as the pans for baking goes I only use my bundt pan so cannot say what will happen if you use a loaf pan. Lynn
I use my bunt pan for making cakes too. One thing happens though. When the cake is baking some of the cake comes out near the top. I have to take a spoon and get it off so it won't over flow. It's not very much that comes out but just enough to be a bother. Other than that the cakes turn out great. I always measure very carefully too so I know that isn't the reason for the over flow. Anyway, maybe someone in the group will be able to help me with this problem. One other question. Can I make this recipe without the yogurt, or does it need to be in there for taste and texture? Again, thanks for the recipe and have a great day.

huummm darn good question. I believe it has to be there. But you could try substituting non sweetened apple sauce in the recipe. I have always made the recipe as it is. As for the pan and a bit of bubble up , well I would try a trick using tin foil or parchment paper along the inside of the pan and having it go up and above the sides of the pan. I have some recipes that do not do that and others that do. It must be in the science of the recipe. I always do that trick on a new recipe untill I am sure it will not over flow on me. I have a gas range and oven so that is a real mess to clean up when it happens.Once the pan is lined with the tin foil or parchment paper spray it with pam to prevent sticking. If you have ever seen recipes for a souffle that is how I mean to do the paper. That trick will work. Failing that a bigger bundt pan. Good Luck and you also have a great day. Lynn
Hi, I will try that thing with the tin foil today. My son can eat almost a whole pound cake by himself. The one I made a few days ago is already gone. I hate people like him who can eat anything they want and never gain a pound. LOL. I will let you know how it turns out. Thanks again and have a great weekend!
