Updated September 20, 2016

Ingredients

Batter

  • 2 1/2 cups Original Bisquick™ mix
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 2 tablespoons grated lemon peel
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons melted butter

Cream Cheese Mixture

  • 1 package (8 oz) cream cheese, softened
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 tablespoon grated lemon peel
  • 2 teaspoons lemon juice

Streusel

  • 1/2 cup Original Bisquick™ mix
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 tablespoon grated lemon peel
  • 3 tablespoons cold butter, cubed

Steps

  • 1
    Heat oven to 350° F. Spray 13 x 9-inch pan with cooking spray.
  • 2
    In large bowl, measure 2 1/2 cups Bisquick™ mix. In large measuring cup or bowl, beat 2 eggs, 1 cup sugar, the milk, 2 tablespoons lemon peel and 2 tablespoons lemon juice. Fold into Bisquick™, followed by melted butter. Spread batter in pan.
  • 3
    In medium bowl, beat Cream Cheese Mixture ingredients with electric mixer on medium speed until smooth and combined. Drop mixture by dollops all over top of batter; swirl using butter knife.
  • 4
    In small bowl, mix 1/2 cup Bisquick™ mix, 1/4 cup sugar and 1 tablespoon lemon peel. Cut in cold butter using pastry blender or by pinching with clean fingers until you get coarse, sandy crumbs. Spread streusel over top of batter.
  • 5
    Bake 30 to 35 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean and edges of cake are golden. Cool on cooling rack at least 20 minutes before serving.

  • To make the swirls, just use a butter knife to cut through cream cheese and cake batter once or twice. Try not to overdo it—you want pockets of lemony cream cheese mixture throughout the cake.
  • You’ll need the grated peel of about 4 medium lemons for this cake. I like to just grate them all in the beginning, and then portion it out.
