My family and I look forward to warm slices of this citrus-flavored coffee cake every Christmas and Easter morning. It's a tasty traditional we've been doing for a number of years.—Barbara Daniel, Ducor, California
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 aunt gave me this appealing recipe she often doubles for large groups," writes Alisha Juhnke from her home in Lebanon, Oregon. "Lightly sweetened with pineapple and topped with coconut, it was an instant winner in my household."
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.
