Coffee Cake

1/3
cup butter or margarine, melted
1/3
cup packed brown sugar
1
jar (6 oz) maraschino cherries (about 25 cherries), drained, stems removed
1/3
cup pecan halves
2
cups Original Bisquick™ mix
2
tablespoons granulated sugar
2/3
cup milk
2
tablespoons butter or margarine, softened
1
egg

Glaze

1
cup powdered sugar
4
teaspoons water
1/2
teaspoon vanilla

  • 1 Heat oven to 400°F. Spray 8- or 12-cup fluted tube cake pan with cooking spray. Pour 1/3 cup melted butter into pan; turn pan to coat with butter. Sprinkle brown sugar over butter. Arrange cherries and pecans on sugar mixture.
  • 2 In medium bowl, stir Bisquick mix, granulated sugar, milk, 2 tablespoons softened butter and egg until combined; beat vigorously 30 seconds. Spoon batter evenly over cherries and pecans.
  • 3 Bake 20 to 25 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Immediately place heatproof plate upside down on pan; carefully turn plate and pan over to remove coffee cake. Cool 10 minutes.
  • 4 Meanwhile, in small bowl, mix glaze ingredients until smooth and thin enough to drizzle, adding additional water, 1 teaspoon at a time, until desired consistency. Drizzle glaze over warm coffee cake.
