I have made the above fruitcake and it is not the one that I used before – off the Bisquick box. The one I want was crusty in texture and not cake like. It actually baked roughly in peaks. Could you send to tell me how I can again get that recipe. Many people miss this being on the box. Thnx

Having grown up and learning to cook during the 60’s, I particularly enjoyed the Vintage Bisquick Recipes that I first started baking with. This site is awesome!! Thank you:)

Thanks so much for putting these recipes up! I do wish the companies would archive all their old recipes, so we would not lose the tried and true.
As for the “Fruitcake” I’m assuming JA is referring to what we called short cake. My mom didnt knead the dough, I think she just plopped big globs of the stiff batter on the cookie sheet, and baked as directed. Pretty sure she used the same –erhm, “technique” when making the biscuits. The only smooth biscuit she ever made popped right out of the Poppin Fresh blue cardboard can. Canned Biscuits! Ew.
