Better than Bisquick Coffee Cake!

Growing up, I loved it when my mom made a Bisquick coffee cake. I loved the cinnamon smell as it baked. It was the best breakfast ever. Now that I am a mom and want my children to eat healthy, Bisquick is not in my cupboard. It is just processed enriched white flour and probably a lot of necessary preservatives to give it a long shelf life. I was given this recipe by a friend, and it called for white flour and shortening. I have changed it through the years to make it healthy. It is a Sunday morning tradition to make this in our home for breakfast. Yummy!
