I made it almost as directed - with Honey Bunches Of Oats - but I used Target-brand 'Bisquick' baking mix and used 1/2 cup buttermilk and 1/2 cup regular mix. It was very good, especially the cereal crumb topping. I would make this one again.

To earlier comment, you can use your low-fat baking mix instead. You can also use other cereals. I made a Cap'n Crunch Coffee Cake once that turned out okay... although I would bet that a crunchier flake cereal would work best for this one.

Does it have to be buttermilk baking mix? I have some reduced fat Bisquick baking mix I'd like to try using in this recipe.
