This came from an old Bisquick cookbook and was called Velvet Crumb Cake. I was afraid someone might think that it's a crumb cake with a crumb topping, so I've renamed it. After hearing how some Carbquik recipes turn out dry, I added an extra 2 tablespoons of butter. Actually, the recipe called for shortening, but I used butter instead. Mine took 5-10 minutes less time to bake than the original recipe stated too, but then I used a dark nonstick pan.

The batter is almost as stiff as a soft cookie dough, but it's been so many years since I made the Bisquick version that I don't remember if that batter was also thick. This makes a very dense cake, almost the texture of pound cake. I detect a slight Carbquik aftertaste, but it's not too bad. I plan to serve it topped with strawberries and whipped cream tonight so I don't think that will be a problem at all. It's just not that great plain. The flavor of the almond flour Pound Cake that I make is much nicer.
