"This recipe is about 50 years old. I don't know if it was ever on a box of Bisquick® or not. It was given to me."

baking mix (such as Bisquick ®)
1 (16 ounce) package
Good choice in making. Cake/bars have good texture; crunchy. Great eating cold; haven't tried warming. Not too sweet, just right for my taste buds. Had no Bisquick mix so used Kroger Brand Buttermilk Pancake and Waffle Mix. No bagged brown sugar so used 2 cups of loose light brown sugar. Since no mention whether to use sweetened or unsweetened flaked coconut I used unsweetened since mix had brown sugar. Roasted walnuts then chopped with Super Salad Shooter. Kept batter in oven a bit too long (35 minutes). Cake fell in the middle before removing. Doesn't hurt the flavor; tastes great. Hint: roasting nuts gives them a golden color and intensifies their flavor plus adds crunch when a recipe calls for nuts. To roast, spread nuts in a single layer on a shallow baking pan. Bake for 8-10 min in 350 degree oven or until lightly toasted. Stir occasionally. Once cooled, chop nuts.
