This is one of my favorite recipes, especially in autumn. It is much easier to make than a traditional pumpkin roll - and it's always a crowd-pleaser! -Carlene Jessop, Hildale, Utah

Sesame Wheat Braids

Meet the Cook: When I started making this bread, my husband and our six children liked it so much I was baking every day. I was thrilled when the judges at our county fair gave these braids both a blue ribbon and best of show award! -Nancy Montgomery, Hartville, Ohio

Apple Pear Coffee Cake

Apple Pear Coffee Cake

A friend gave me this apple pear coffee cake recipe to make for a breakfast I was hosting. The pan was empty before the breakfast was over! It's one of my most-requested recipes, probably because it's a bit different. —Joanne Hoschette, Paxton, Massachusetts

Banana Yeast Bread

Banana Yeast Bread

Banana Yeast Bread

Though our two children (now grown; we have one granddaughter) dislike bananas, they've always enjoyed this. It's been a standby since my grandmother shared the recipe before I was married. Cooking is fun for me...but I have to admit I would rather bake than make a meal. Yeast breads are my favorites! -Maralee Meyer, Milford, Nebraska

Caramel-Pecan Sticky Buns

Caramel-Pecan Sticky Buns

My mother used to make delicious cinnamon rolls when I was a child. Later, she taught my sister and me to make them. I've since added the caramel and pecans. These scrumptious buns are a huge hit wherever I take them. —Judy Powell Star, Idaho

Down East Blueberry Buckle

This buckle won a contest at my daughter’s college. They shipped us four lobsters, but the real prize was seeing the smile on our daughter's face. —Dianne van der Veen, Plymouth, MA

Spiced Squash Muffins

Spiced Squash Muffins

Spiced Squash Muffins

When I created these moist muffins with our garden-fresh squash, my 3 year-old son kept asking for more. That batch disappeared quickly...and so did the second one! We especially like the topping of brown sugar and cinnamon, which adds a sweet crunch. —TaeRee Glover, Sedan, Kansas

Almond Berry Muffins

Almond Berry Muffins

Almond Berry Muffins

I made these moist muffins to take to the office, and they were a hit. Sugared almonds give them a crunchy topping. When strawberries aren't in season, I use individual frozen cut strawberries directly from the freezer.

“My family says our Thanksgiving and Christmas dinner wouldn't be complete without this easy bread. I bake a variety to suit everyone—one plain, one with just nuts, one with raisins and dried cranberries, and one with everything.” — Priscilla Gilbert, Indian Harbour Beach, Florida

Rustic Rye Bread

Rustic Rye Bread

Rustic Rye Bread

This gorgeous rye bread has just a touch of sweetness and the perfect amount of caraway seeds. With a crusty top and firm texture, it holds up well to sandwiches, but a pat of butter will do the job, too. —Holly Wade, Harrisonburg, Virginia
