Maple Twist Coffee Cake
Total TimePrep: 45 min. + rising Bake: 20 min.
I did not have maple flavoring, just good quality maple syrup. I used the same amount (1 tsp) but I should have used more like maybe 1 tbsp. It came out great, and looked just like the picture! I do plan to make it again.
Delicious! Enjoyed this recipe very much. Pretty straight forward directions and we followed as written. The lovely appearance is impressive and well worth a little extra effort. Pretty and very tasty!
Wonderful recipe! It is a great thing to give as a gift or take to a pot luck. Freezes very well.
I have been making this recipe and about 10 variations of it for over 40 yrs. I learned to make this from my wonderful Aunt Darlene Hennings when I would spend my teenage wknds at her house and she taught me the art and love of baking. At the time this recipe originated from the "Pillsbury Bake Off" cookbook. As I taught this recipe to others, including Michele Neville and then later to her daughter Brynn Rader, it became well known as my "Suncake" recipe. It became famous in the quaint town of Nashville, In... or better known as little Nashville of Brown Co. In.. This area is known for its history of old beautiful log cabins, settlers and their trades of wood working, weaving and looming but most famously known for their beautiful, valuable art work and paintings of the Hills O Brown County and the town village. The Suncakes were specially sought out among the variety of pastries brought at a bake sale. Some were bought from the shops to sell in their windows displays. Now that I've moved away, the locals are missing them and asking if I would consider mail orders. I now live in the beautiful hills of Bella Vista, Ar. and planning on baking them here so the aroma of maple and nuts fill the air in these hills too! I enjoy your food articles very much and it was nice seeing my Niece and her Mom in the article of your magazine Moms Best/ Close to Home in Dec/Jan 2012! Thanks for Sharing.

I made these for my work mates at Christmas and they absolutely loved them. I wrapped them in cellophane and they were beautiful. The gift you give someone when you dont know what to buy. People just love homemade gifts. It was the hit of the Christmas party
