It will be like biscuit or coffee cake. Not like layer cake.

The texture of the Bisquick-produced product will be a bit coarser than boxed or homemade cake.

As PF said, think biscuit-like or coffee cake.

It's a biscuit mix. So what you make with it will resemble biscuits.

I wonder if anybody ever thought of making quick biscuits with Bisquick...

Funny, my Bisquick shortcake is crunchy just like quick biscuits. That's why it's so good, the crunchy shortcake, the fresh juicy fruit and the sweet creamy whipped cream on top. As far as I'm concerned the product would be a success even if this was the only thing it was good for.

Bisquick was designed and optimized for making quick biscuits, and secondarily as an all purpose baking mix. There were trade-offs. You won't get as light and as fluffy cake as when using cake mixes. If you use those cake mixes to make biscuits your biscuits won't be crunchy.

Everything considered it's a pretty good product, and can be pressed into service to make a lot of things... quickly.

bisquick

sorry if this is a silly question.....but you can also make your own mix yourself,so would the texture every one is talking about be the same even with these homemade ones also? I never came across this before in baking ,this is new to me. Usually made every thing from scratch. Is there a reason beside its faster to use this made up product? I can't seem to grasp why you would really want to use it,seeing it really doesn't seem to take that long to make it from scratch....maybe a few more minutes. But boy is it worth it.

Another thing you might do is compare a biscuit recipe with a cake recipe. Not only are the ingredients different, but the way they are put together is also different.

If you are willing/interested in/to make your own biscuit mix why in the world would you think of making cake with it? Instead if just making a cake? Ai yi yi

Bisquick does have preservatives in it for shelf life. Homemade mix doesn't and needs to be kept in the fridge so the fat won't go rancid on you.
