I'd check the box or their website for recipes.

Bisquick makes a great coffee cake. The recipe is usually on the box. If not, go to the Bisquick website -- lots of recipes there.

I have only made coffee cakes from Bisquick. They have a different texture from regular cake mixes, but are very good.

Google "Sarah's Bisquick Cake". It sounds good. Also, if you just Google "Bisquick Cakes", you might get more information. Good luck.

Shortcake. Fresh mascerated strawberries with hot shortcake right out of the oven, with whipped cream. Heaven!

I've done both Bisquick recipes, the coffee cake and the shortcake. The coffee cake was good (but I'm not a big eater of coffee cake). I do my strawberry shortcake the same as Zhizara, right off the Bisquick package. IMO once you've tried this crunchy shortcake you'll never buy commercial "sponge" shortcake ever again. Add fresh sliced strawberries and freshly whipped cream and it's the best possible strawberry shortcake.

Bisquick has fat in it so you'll need to adjust your recipe. It also will produce a cake with a different texture.

There is really no way the taste of something can be conveyed perfectly accurately. And until we have "Taste-o-Net" on the Internet, the best way for you to determine the differences is to bake a cake using a mix, probably a plain yellow cake (none of the butter-flavored, etc.) and bake a Bisquick one and do a a side-by-side taste test.
