Lynda Atteberry Hoskins from Mathis, Texas offers this cinnamony loaf that tastes just like a coffee cake. "When I worked as an elementary school secretary, I used to take a slice of this cake with me in the mornings for a snack," she remembers.
Raisins add sweetness and nuts add crunch to this moist, cinnamony coffee cake shared by Dorothy Bateman. "If you don't like raisins, feel free to substitute chopped cranberries or finely chopped apple," she suggests from her Carver, Massachusetts kitchen.
This bread is a cross between a typical baking powder-leavened quick bread and a yeast bread. The result: a cinnamon coffee cake-tasting loaf that's wonderful served plain and incredible toasted.—Taste of Home Cooking School
