Field editor Peggy Burdick of Burlington, Michigan sends the recipe for this lovely breakfast bread. She notes, "My aunt gave me the recipe for these pretty, rich-tasting loaves many years ago. I use my bread machine for the first step in the recipe.
With their decorative cinnamon swirls, these lovely braids taste as good as they look! And their aroma while baking will make your mouth water. For a holiday touch, you could decorate the drizzle of icing with pecans and candied cherries. —Vick Holloway, Joelton, Tennessee
I bring these to every event--they’re always a huge hit. Kids love them, and moms like making them because they’re lighter than your average scone. If you have trouble finding cinnamon chips at the store, you can get them online. —Kathy Monahan, Jacksonville, Florida
I’ve learned to keep copies of the recipe on hand when I serve this moist and satisfying coffee cake. It has a nice level of coconut flavor from the pudding mix. —Beth Tropeano, Charlotte, North Carolina
“This bread is based on the winning recipe in a local contest I judged. I turned it into a double braid and added more peppers. It’s not difficult and is well worth the effort. Plus, it smells glorious when baking!”—Fancheon Resler Bluffton, Indiana
"My husband and I have three active sons, so I'm always busy in the kitchen," writes Sharon Walker of Huntington Station, New York. "This rich quick bread is a favorite. I like to cover loaves with colored plastic wrap to give as gifts."
My family laughs at me when I tell them that this poor dough never has a change for an hour, but it makes up for all that punching down with its texture and good taste. My mother-in-law taught me how to make this bread...now the recipe's been passed down to my daughter and two granddaughters.
These tender, easy-to-make muffins are loaded with juicy blueberries, and the crunchy topping has just the right hint of nutmeg flavor. We enjoy them warm with honey butter.
