I believe Castor sugar is "Fine" sugar here in the states.

This is a wonderful alternative to those standard cinnamon-walnut-streusel coffee cake recipes with the lovely addition of raspberry preserves.

This one is awesome!

I actually have this printed out, as I have a jar of cherry preserves I was trying to find something to do with.

Yes, that Polish one keeps coming up. I think I need to finally make it. The Starbucks copycat looks like a winner also!!

Sounds a lot like the Enteman's (spelling?) cream cheese coffee cake. So good.

Just in time for Sunday morning! A simple coffee cake is whipped together by first making a crumb mixture, and then stirring in milk and egg. It gets covered with a streusel topping and baked.

Yum! I love your picture of this, Deb! What would be a good apple to use that is NOT tart. I don't care for Granny Smith's. Maybe Jonathon or McIntosh? I can never remember year to year(& we have this same conversation EVERY year). lol.
Aug. 14, 2013 7:26 am
OH! I just realized I have cans of apple pie & peach pie filling in the cupboard. Do you think I could use those in a coffee cake or would it be too mushy?
Deb C
Aug. 14, 2013 7:42 am
McIntosh is what I usually use. I'm not a fan of apple filling.
Aug. 14, 2013 7:51 am
I'm not really, either. I can't remember why I even bought it, but I'm sure I had a great reason :)

This yummy sour cream coffee cake is chilled overnight before baking so it's all ready for you to pop in the oven for a hot, fragrant morning treat.

or this one which can be halved

This is a "for sure"! I printed this out weeks ago, swearing I would make it for the bake sale. I figure I can just make the whole thing but divide it into 2 smaller for them, one for me ;)

Aug. 14, 2013 6:47 am ....this is similar to the one above and is over the top with some of the syrup from the following on top :D....
Aug. 14, 2013 6:48 am
And...I make it with canned pears from my sister, have never tried the apples.
Aug. 14, 2013 7:31 am
Pears would be really good! Does she add anything to her canned pears? I also saved that the banana bread pancake recipe awhile back when you posted(or maybe I was just nosing thru your rb, idk). I can imagine that the 2 together are amazing!
Aug. 14, 2013 7:36 am
She canned these specifically for me so there is no sugar or spice in them. I believe it's just water, might be a bit of juice. I "ruined" those pancakes but that was not surprising since I rarely make them. Someone who makes breakfast needs to give those a whirl :)

btw- I let you a 'puter note. Feel free to disregard, hahaha

Cook's Illustrated NY Style Crumb Cake! I usually make the full recipe and bake in 2 8" square pans. One for you and one for me!

Looks like the site I linked is for an 8" pan.
Aug. 14, 2013 7:34 am
Haha, you & I are on the same wavelength(one for you, one for me). That coffee cake is picture perfect! I have a lot of recipes bookmarked & pinned from browneyedbaker.

It comes out just like it looks. I make Cook's Illustrated Crumb Cakes and bake in decorative lidded tins for the holidays, Sprinkle with powder sugar before giving and tie with a bow. Haven't met anyone who doesn't like it.
Aug. 14, 2013 7:54 am
Ok, I'm sold! It's printing now. Picking up buttermilk this afternoon, baking over the next 2 days.

Hi Lisa, I thought this one sounded good.
Aug. 14, 2013 7:59 am
How pretty! Throwing in a bundt cake would be a good idea & mix it up a little too.
Aug. 14, 2013 8:02 am
OMGosh, you guys, I'm so excited to start baking! It's so cold in my house turn-on-the-furnace cold, but I refuse. Can't wait to fire up the oven & smell cinnamon, pumpkin, etc thru-out the house. Mmmm.
Aug. 14, 2013 10:46 am
Hi Lisa , let me know if you try this one and if so is it any good? I have had this one in my recipe box but have yet to try it out. I don't own a bundt pan..thanks!
