I love the combination of chocolate, coconut and walnuts in this coffee cake. I serve it warm alongside a cup of coffee or hot cocoa. Using a biscuit mix really saves time when stirring up the batter.


  • 2 cups biscuit/baking mix
  • 1/2 cup sugar, divided
  • 1 egg
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 3 tablespoons butter, melted, divided
  • 1/3 cup semisweet chocolate chips, melted
  • 1/3 cup sweetened shredded coconut
  • 1/4 cup chopped walnuts


  1. In a large bowl, combine the biscuit mix and 1/4 cup sugar. Whisk the egg, milk and 2 tablespoons butter; stir into dry ingredients just until moistened. Pour into a greased 8-in. square baking dish. Pour chocolate over the batter; cut through batter with a knife to swirl the chocolate.
  2. Combine the coconut, walnuts, and remaining sugar and butter; sprinkle over the top. Bake at 400° for 25-30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool on a wire rack.
