Caramel Twist Coffee Cake

This is another of Bisquick's great recipes.
Sweet potatoes, corn syrup and brown sugar. Very yummy!
I used Maple Syrup instead of the corn syrup.

How to Make Caramel Twist Coffee Cake


  1. Heat oven to 400^. Melt 1/3 cup butter in ungreased square pan, 9x9-inch, in oven. Stir in sugar and corn syrup. Sprinkle with pecans.
  2. Mix Bisquick, sweet potatoes and milk until dough forms a ball. Turn dough onto surface dusted with Bisquick. Knead lightly 10 times. Roll or pat into 12-inch square. Spread butter over dough. Sprinkle with brown sugar over butter. Fold dough into thirds; press edges together to seal. Cut crosswise into 12 one-inch strips. Twist ends of each strip in opposite directions. Place twists on pecans in pan.
  3. Bake 25-30 minutes or until golden brown. Immediately turn upside down onto heatproof serving plate; leave pan over coffee cake 1 minute. Serve warm. Great cool too.
