"Mom serves this nutty coffee cake for Christmas breakfast each year," shares Becky Wax of Tuscola, Illinois. "The simple recipe is a big time-saver on such an event-filled morning. Everyone loves the crunchy topping."
Tart apples and sour cream flavor this moist coffee cake covered with brown sugar and crunchy nuts. "The recipe makes two pans, so you can serve one and freeze the other for a busy morning or unexpected company," says Dawn Fagerstrom of Warren, Minnesota.
For an old-fashioned treat, there's nothing that beats my mom's peach kuchen. With a melt-in-your-mouth crust and a lightly sweet filling, this dessert is perfect after a big meal. —Cathy Eland

Take heart! This impressive heart-shaped coffee cake is not that tricky to make. The tender golden bread is filled with maraschino cherries, pecans and sweet dried apricots, then drizzled with a yummy icing. —Linda Pauls
"I adapted several coffee cake recipes to come up with this tender treat," notes Deb Quest of Saskatoon, Saskatchewan. It's so moist and yummy that even people who usually don't care for rhubarb (like me!) ask for seconds."
My family likes me to put all of my "heart" into making breakfast, and this special coffee cake is one they request often. The recipe feeds a crowd, but you'll be delighted (and surprised!) by how quickly your family will gobble it up.
