Cornbread Coffee Cake with Fresh Figs and Walnut Streusel
Mango Bread with Walnuts
The tropical flavors of mango and coconut enliven classic fall spices and chopped walnuts, lending complex flavor to an otherwise simple recipe.
This decadent pull-apart monkey bread loaf is composed of bite-sized yeasted rolls that get covered with a sticky-sweet brown sugar glaze and then baked together in a bundt pan.
Arlene’s Coffee Cake
Contributor Jamie Feldmar gave us this recipe for cinnamon and pecan-laced coffee cake; the original came from her grandmother’s neighbor, and has been passed down through the women in her family. With a tender texture thanks to sour cream in the batter, it will stay moist for several days after baking, making it a great make-ahead dessert or breakfast.
Strawberry Loaf Bread
As a kid, I wasn’t really into cooking or baking, preferring instead to be outside playing soccer. The one thing that I did enjoy helping my mom make, however, was her strawberry bread: packed with fresh strawberries, I loved to eat it hot out of the oven slathered in butter. It’s so fast and easy, I make it all the time now, with whatever fresh or frozen fruits I have lying around. —Farideh Sadeghin, test kitchen director Get the recipe for Strawberry Loaf Bread »
