Raspberry Crumble Coffee Cake

Raspberry Crumble Coffee Cake

Don't be "intimidated" by the recipe directions for this coffee cake—it really isn't difficult to make. Try it sometime as a nice brunch item. Don't limit it to that, though...it's also a delicious dessert.

Italian Parmesan Bread

Italian Parmesan Bread

When my grown children come home for visits, they always ask me to make this bread along with their favorite spaghetti dinner. In between times, the easy-to-prepare loaf is a hit at church socials and potluck suppers.

Candy Cane Coffee Cakes

I make my festive-looking coffee cakes at Christmas and for breakfast company. My husband doesn't usually care for apricots, but he loves these. The holidays are a busy time on our small New England acreage. In addition to a few cattle and some chickens, we raise 50 turkeys every year! —Kelley Winship, West Rutland, Vermont

Poppy Seed Roll

Usually, I don't get much of an immediate response from people when I serve this. They're too busy eating it! Poppy Seed Roll really brings the light to my husband's eyes. He prefers it over any birthday cake I could bake. I like to serve this bread as a just-right, not-too-sweet dessert. And i always offer a glass of cold milk, too—my husband's part of a family dairy!

Country Swirl Bread

Country Swirl Bread

After a basic white bread is mastered, this recipe is a great next step in the art of bread baking. Here you'll use the Quick Mixing Method, where the dry yeast and the dry ingredients are mixed together before the warm liquid is added. This time-saver will help in the assembly of this more complex recipe.

Christmas Braid

Christmas Braid

Christmas Braid

This holiday bread is easy to make, although the braiding takes a bit of practice. I serve it for evening coffees, then use the rest toasted for breakfast. I also give it as gifts—it's delicious with cheese—and it always goes over big at Christmas bake sales. My husband's a dairy farmer. I work as a bank teller and stenographer. At home, I enjoy cooking and crafts.

Cheesy Onion Burger Buns

Cheesy Onion Burger Buns

These buns regularly get packed as part of my husband's lunch! I've copied this recipe for many people—one of the nice things about it is that it also makes very good breadsticks to take to covered-dish suppers or take to picnics. I like to cook...and taste, too! In addition, I enjoy sewing and all kinds of crafts, and I've been fortunate to win several blue ribbons at Country Fair.

Creamy Chive Rings

Creamy Chive Rings

Recently I served Creamy Chive Rings at lunch at my Home Extension Club meeting. Next meeting I had to bring copies of the recipe for everyone there!

Whole Wheat Butterhorns

Whole Wheat Butterhorns

I take Whole Wheat Butterhorns to potluck suppers, and I serve them to guests—they'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.

Reuben Loaf

Reuben Loaf

Reuben Loaf

When I make this bread, I almost always have to bake two loaves so that everyone gets a taste! It's especially good in the winter. In fact, last year when we went to a Christmas buffet at my husband's aunt's house—with a hearty soup as the main course—I took a Reuben Loaf along. It looks so pretty sliced and arranged on a platter, too. My husband and I are crop farmers with three young children. Cooking—especially baking—is one of the ways I relax, and I also enjoy sewing.

Caramel Pecan Rolls

These rolls rise nice and high and hold their shape. and the gooey caramel sauce is scrumptious.—Carolyn Buschkamp, Emmetsburg, Iowa
