This recipe is actually called ”platz” in German, meaning ”flat,” and has been in my family since before I was born. The fresh fruits of summer make it a favorite, and it’s simply wonderful warm out of the oven.
I love the excellent texture of this old-fashioned streusel-topped coffee cake. Always a crowd-pleaser, its pleasing vanilla flavor enriched by sour cream may remind you of breakfast at Grandma's!

Kielbasa and sauerkraut star in a tasty filling for these scrumptious stuffed rolls, which make a great dinner with soup or salad. My family also loves leftover bundles right out of the refrigerator for a quick lunch.

This nicely spiced caked, with chunks of apple and a hint of ginger, cinnamon and nutmeg, always wins raves. I like it best served warm with a dollop of whipped topping. It freezes well, too.

"As a diabetic, I tend to stick with tried-and-true recipes," Barbara Severson writes from Tularosa, New Mexico. "I added spices to a well-like oatmeal bread for this loaf and it’s the best my bread machine has ever turned out. I think it tastes best warm with tea or coffee and whipped topping."
When Mother baked zweiback rolls—which means "twice baked"—she'd guard them, lest they disappear quickly! She would bake them on Sundays when friends came by for "fsapa" a meal of cold meat, cheese, jelly and coffee.
"The recipe for this sausage roll has been in my family for years," says Luella Drake of Auburn, Indiana. "A tube of refrigerated pizza dough makes it quick and easy, but it tastes like it took hours to prepare."
This moist and tender loaf boasts a mild beer and caraway flavor that can hold its own with hearty soups and chili. But surprise! “It’s also yummy spread with ham salad or cream cheese and assorted jams,” promises Janet Newmyer of Wilber, Nebraska.
This fast version of this holiday classic is made extra speedy by the use of hot roll mix. It eliminates waiting for the dough to rise and the final resting time.—Taste of Home Test Kitchen, Greendale, Wisconsin
