Description: This is not my recipe. I found it on the Betty Crocker site . This is a yummy coffee cake. The top tastes like pecan pie.

1/3 cup  Butter (melted)
1/2 cup  Packed Brown Sugar
1 Tablespoon  Water
1 cup  Pecan Halves
1 1/2 cups  Bisquick
1/2 cup  Granulated Sugar
1/2 cup  Milk
2 Tablespoons  Vegetable Oil
1 teaspoon  Vanilla
1  Egg
1/2 cup  Powdered Sugar
2 - 3 teaspoons  Milk

Instructions: 1. Heat oven to 350F. Spray 9-inch round cake pan with cooking spray; line with cooking parchment paper.
2. In medium bowl, stir together the first 3 ingredients (melted butter, brown sugar and water) until well blended. Stir in pecans to coat evenly. Pour into pan, and spread pecans in an even layer; set aside.
3. In large bowl, beat Bisquick, granulated sugar, 1/2 cup milk and 2 Tablespoons vegetable oil. Using a mixer, beat on low speed 30 second. Scrape bowl. Beat on medium speed 2 minutes. Pour batter evenly over pecan mixture in pan.
4. Bake 29 to 34 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Run knife around side of pan to loosen cake. Cool pan on cooling rack 5 minutes. Place heatproof serving plate upside down over pan; turn plate and pan over. Remove pan. Replace any pecans that may still be in pan on top of cake. Cool 15 minutes.
