My mother-in-law brought this recipe from Yugoslavia in the early 1900's. It was a tradition in her family to serve it for holidays and special occasions. Now it's my tradition. Family members often help roll our the dough and add the filling. —Mrs. Anthony Setta, Saegertown, Pennsylvania

My sister-in-law made this coffee cake with the fresh blueberries we picked while our families were vacationing at her cottage one summer. I've used frozen berries at home with wonderful results. Each time I bake this treat, we're reminded of fun times.
This coffee cake recipe is a variation of one a close friend and I make for our home baking business. I've used raspberries and blueberries in place of the rhubarb with winning results. —Lorraine Robinson, Stony Plain, Alberta
This is an adaptation of a friendship bread. The original recipe called for raisins, but I started using cranberries to suit my family's taste. If you have Sourdough Starter on hand, you can quickly prepare the coffee cake.
