I've been making this bread for many years. It smells so good in the oven and tastes even better. I make bread almost every Saturday, and it doesn't stay around long with our sons home from college in the summer.
My family waits expectantly for me to bake this beautiful sweet bread every year at this time. The tempting aroma as it's baking fills the kitchen and makes everybody eager for a thick slice of this yummy treat. —Linda Eager, Harlan, Indiana
WHEN this old-fashioned bread is baking, it reminds me of childhood and the warm, inviting aromas that greeted me when I got home from school.
The light sweet flavor, crispy crust and hearty texture of this bread made for a special treat when Mom baked it for us. I hope I am leaving the same delicious memory for my family.

"A local apple orchard had a cook-off I wanted to enter, so I created these golden cinnamon treats," says Karen Petzold of Vassar, Michigan. They're a snap to assemble with convenient crescent roll dough.
Whenever friends compliment me on my zesty cake, I say, "Thanks Mom!" Her recipe for Lemon Streusel Cake was among dozens I took with me when I turned 21 and left home.
When I was growing up, we had five kinds of fruit trees plus a big garden in our yard. Many times during the summer, I'd be so full from snacking on the "crops" that I'd have trouble finishing supper!
Today, I'm a nurse in a large hospitalbut my husband and I look forward someday to living in the country.
I take Whole Wheat Butterhorns to potluck suppers, and I serve them to gueststhey've always brought many requests for the recipe.
They're a favorite at home, too. The rolls don't take long to make, and they freeze very well for future use.
My husband and I have four married children and three grandchildren. We have a hay and cattle operation, and he's also a carpenter.
I enjoy gardening...every year I can and freeze my harvest, then share the bounty with friends and family.
I lived in an orphanage 50 years ago and helped out in the kitchen, Back then, I often made this wonderful coffee cake, dutifully following the recipe in the cookbook they used in that kitchen. Years later, when I saw Kate Smith on television, I realized that I had been using her cookbook to make this coffee cake. I was delighted to know I had been using one of Kate's favorite recipes!
