Bisquick cake recipes with fruit are some of my favorites. They’re great for breakfast (like this blueberry coffee cake recipe or Bisquick Cinnamon Rolls) and for dessert (like this Bisquick Peach Cobbler recipe). And sometimes you can swap them for either! Even leftover cobbler can be breakfast, right?

This Bisquick coffee cake recipe makes a moist and delicious blueberry coffee cake or blueberry boy bait! Have you ever heard of a blueberry boy bait recipe?

The boy bait name comes from a story of a teen girl who submitted a blueberry coffee cake recipe to the Pillsbury $100,000 Recipe & Baking Contest in 1954. She placed second in the youth division with her “Blueberry Boy Bait” recipe. This Bisquick Blueberry Coffee Cake is a quick way to make a similar recipe!
