I love the classic Bisquick Velvet-Crumb Cake. It is crazy easy to make, super moist and the coconut/nut topping is to die for. No seriously, it is so good! It should be a staple dessert in every household.
It is hard to think this cake could get any better, but it can. I did a little recipe revival and turned it into seven-layer bars. Some people call them magic bars (probably because they are truly magical), but I like seven-layers bars. I mean, the bars are seven layers after all. When I started testing out recipes for the bars, I knew one thing for sure: I wanted to keep things simple and play up the velvet crumb cake’s star ingredients of vanilla extract, shredded coconut and nuts. So for the base of the bars I used the velvet crumb cake and then added a layer of shredded coconut, chocolate chips, butterscotch chips, sweetened condensed milk, walnuts and pecans. So many delicious layers!
Here is how you make them. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Gather up all your ingredients. Add the Bisquick, sugar, milk, butter, egg and vanilla to a mixing bowl and beat until combined.
