Coffee Cake
2
tablespoons butter or margarine, softened
1
cup Original Bisquick® mix
2
tablespoons water
3/4
cup water
1/4
cup butter or margarine
1
teaspoon maple flavor
1
cup Original Bisquick® mix
3
eggs
Glaze
1 1/2
cups powdered sugar
2
tablespoons butter or margarine, softened
1
teaspoon maple flavor
1
to 2 tablespoons milk
Garnish
1/4
cup chopped pecans
  1. Heat oven to 350°F. In small bowl, cut 2 tablespoons butter into 1 cup Bisquick mix, using pastry blender (or pulling 2 table knives through ingredients in opposite directions), until crumbly. Sprinkle with 2 tablespoons water; mix until pastry cleans side of bowl. On ungreased cookie sheet, pat pastry into 11-inch circle.
  2. In 3-quart saucepan, heat 3/4 cup water and 1/4 cup butter to rolling boil. Add 1 teaspoon maple flavor and 1 cup Bisquick mix all at once. Stir vigorously over low heat about 1 1/2 minutes or until mixture forms a ball; remove from heat. Beat in eggs, one at a time; continue beating until smooth. Spread egg mixture over pastry.
  3. Bake 45 to 50 minutes or until topping is crisp and dark golden brown; cool slightly.
  4. In small bowl, stir glaze ingredients until smooth and thin enough to drizzle. Drizzle over cofee cake. Sprinkle with pecans.
