When I was on treat duty for my moms' group, I baked this pumpkin coffee cake. So many people asked for the recipe, the group director wound up putting it in our newsletter. —Rachel Dodd, Avondale, Arizona
An ideal treat any time of the day, this moist yellow cake offers a delightful surprise of cinnamon, nuts and brown sugar in every slice. Nanetta Larson relies on a boxed mix to help her bake it in her Canton, South Dakota kitchen.
"I've been making this special breakfast treat since I was a teenager," shares Trish Quinn of Middletown, Pennsylvania. "With chocolate chips and cinnamon in the middle and on top, it never fails to please all ages."
My mom was well-known for her delicious Kringle. She made it from memory and when she passed away, we didn’t have the recipe to carry-on this tradition. We searched through her recipes and we found what we believe was her original starting recipe. So that’s where we began. The dough remains the same, but I have adjusted the filling ingredients until it finally came out just right. Try this tender, flaky pastry with its almonds and coconut filling, and you’ll be hooked on it like us!—Deborah Richmond, Trabuco Canyon, California
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 Stafford Springs, Connecticut reader's cake over the top on taste.
