This moist spice cake from Sandra Castillo of Sun Prairie, Wisconsin is low in fat but full of flavor! "Apple pie filling is my secret ingredient," she writes. "For a fun variation, try it with a chocolate cake mix and cherry pie filling...or yellow cake mix and peach filling."
Warm, buttery coffee cake: you just can't beat a good one. And Janice Kuhlmann's recipe for Sour Cream Coffee Cake is just that. With a lovely, tender interior and a slightly crunchy crust, it has a wonderful texture not unlike poundcake. But it's the lemon and almond flavors plus the full cup of walnuts that really take this Newington, Connecticut reader's cake over the top on taste.
Both of my boys really enjoyed helping me make Monkey Bread when they were young. It seemed to taste twice as good when they helped fix it. It's one of our favorites for breakfast or as a snack. —Carol Allen, McLeansboro, Illinois
If you enjoy gingerbread and pumpkin goodies, you'll like this spiced dessert I always fix around the holiday. My family and friends look forward to moist slices every year. —Suzanne Loveland of Edinburg, Virginia
