Valentine's Bisquick cinnamon delight cake

Treat yourself and your honey-do this Valentine's day with a delicious Bisquick cinnamon delight cake. The cake tastes similar to a cinnamon roll, and it's fairly simple to prepare. I hope that y'all will enjoy it as much as my husband does.

  • 2 cups of Bisquick mix
  • ⅔ cup of milk (almond milk, or oat milk works well)
  • 1 egg, or ¼ cup of applesauce, or other egg substitute
  • 2 tablespoons of granulated white Splenda, or regular granulated white sugar

Ingredients for the cinnamon mixture:

  • 6 tablespoons (¾ cups) of Bisquick mix
  • 6 tablespoons (¾ cups) of Splenda brown sugar, or regular brown sugar
  • ½ teaspoon of ground cinnamon
  • 2 heaping tablespoons of softened butter, or margarine


First, grease an 8-inch heart-shaped cake pan, or a 9x9 inch cake pan with butter, or vegetable shortening. Set aside.

In a bowl, add two cups of Bisquick mix, two-thirds cup of milk (almond milk, or oat milk works well), one egg (or one-fourth cup of applesauce, or other egg substitute), two tablespoons of granulated white Splenda (or regular granulated white sugar) together and combine well.

Now, using a spatula, transfer the cake batter to your prepared cake pan.

In a separate bowl, combine six tablespoons (three-fourths cups) of Bisquick mix, six tablespoons (three-fourths cups) of Splenda brown sugar blend, or regular brown sugar, a half teaspoon of ground cinnamon, two heaping tablespoons of softened butter, or margarine together with a spatula, or a fork until the mixture comes together. (The mixture is supposed to be slightly wet. If needed, add extra butter.)

Now, dollop the cinnamon mixture onto the cake batter (I just drop pieces of the mixture about an inch apart all over the batter).

As the cake bakes, the cinnamon mixture will melt down into the cake and the cake will look marbled once it's finished baking.

Bake in a 450 degrees F oven for twenty-five to thirty minutes. Allow the cake to cool before adding your preferred frosting or glaze. Then enjoy!


I made white frosting to frost my Valentine's cake, but the frosting isn't necessary. It tastes delicious both ways.

Gin Lee is a published author, journalist, and contributor, among other works, and she resides in a rural town in Arkansas with her husband and their fur babies, Highway, Princess, and Stinkpot the turtle. A huge thanks goes out to all for reading, following, and sharing Gin Lee's articles! Thank you! Since Gin Lee lives in a rural area, there's not much local news to cover. So, she covers articles of interest on how-to's about organic gardening, recipes, homesteading, and survival techniques. If those things are of interest to you, then you'll never (hopefully) be disappointed. She tries to cover a wide variety of articles to entertain everyone. Comments are turned off due to rudeness and hatefulness. The world has enough vulgarity, hatefulness, and arrogance without it having any help. Since having the simple courtesy of manners is lacking and sharing words of kindness does not abide in a few people. Those few people ruin what's supposed to be educational and an enjoyable experience for all others. Gin Lee does have children and young adults that are followers. Potty mouths, vulgarity, and hate are not acceptable. Apologies go out to those of you who generally are very sweet and also to Gin Lee's followers who have been a witness to others being rude and malicious. Hopefully, you'll be understanding of the measures that have to be put into place. Please be kind to one another.
