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
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.
“When my boys hear I’m planning to make Monkey Bread, they’re eager to help,” says Carol Allen of McLeansboro, Illinois. Brady is the official “shaker”. He coats the biscuits after Mom has cut them into pieces. Jerod arranges the coated biscuits in the pan, then it’s ready to go into the oven. “Both boys really enjoy helping me make Monkey Bread, and it seems to taste twice as good when they’ve helped fix it,” Carol assures. “It’s one of our favorites for breakfast or as a snack.”
Moist, delicious and tender…that's what you get when you bake this luscious coffee cake from Charlotte Mallet-Prevost of Frederick, Maryland. “I get a good response whenever I make it,” Charlotte writes. “It's fantastic.”
