I love my bundt pan, but I hardly use it. When I came across two recipes by Bisquick, I had to make them during Christmas break. The best part is that they are dinner recipes. Score! So far, I only made the Hidden Sloppy Joes. The variation is called Hidden Reuben, so maybe I'll try that when I'm on spring break. The original recipe called for condensed chicken gumbo soup, but canned soup is unhealthy, so I searched Recipe Zaar and adjusted the filling a bit. The filling was so amazing, I'm never going to use Manwich again! The filling is a tad on the sweet side (in a good way), so if you are oversensitive to sweet stuff (like my mom), you may not enjoy it as much.
In case you seem a bit disoriented, the "cake" in the picture is flat-side up. It rolled over on its side and wouldn't stay LOL
Hidden Sloppy Joes
1 pound ground beef
1/2 cup onion, chopped
1 clove garlic, minced
3 Tbsp ketchup
2 Tbsp prepared mustard
2 Tbsp sugar
2 Tbsp vinegar
2 Tbsp Worcestershire sauce
3 cups baking mix, such as Bisquick
2/3 cup milk
2 Tbsp butter, softened
1. Cook and stir ground beef, onion, and garlic until beef is brown; drain grease. Pat down beef to remove remaining grease. Stir in ketchup, mustard, sugar, vinegar, and Worcestershire sauce. Heat to boiling; reduce heat. Simmer uncovered, stirring occasionally, 5 minutes.
2. Heat oven to 375F. Grease bundt cake pan. Mix baking mix, milk, butter, and eggs. Beat 30 seconds. Spread 2 cups of batter in bottom and up sides and center of pan. Spoon beef mixture onto center of batter. Drop remaining batter about 1/2 inch apart on top. Bake until light brown and firm, 25 minutes. Let cool for 10 minutes; then invert onto serving plate.
Makes 6-8 servings (depending on how big you cut the pieces)
