A swirl of cherry preserves tweaks this light and lemony sour cream tea bread delightfully.

The Brennan family, like many landmark New Orlean restaurants has vowed to stay open and continue their family’s restaurant legacy. This is a coffeecake such as they serve at Commander’s Palace. It is rich, buttery and typical of our favorite American style sour cream coffeecakes. Serve with www.ThanksgivingCoffee laced with a dash of chicory. This is a sumptuous, golden, moist sour cream coffeecake to beat the band. If you collect sour cream coffeecakes, you have to try this one.

Who’d of think it? Sponge toffee crunched up into a streusel is the crowning glory on this wonderful coffeecake. Ever wonder what you fan do with sponge toffee? It looks so good but eats too sticky! It is, however, perfect for some funky baking. Buttermilk makes a good stand in for sour cream if you’ve a mind to use it. This caves in a bit after baking (because of the cream cheese topping) but is a golden delight.

 

A gossamer little almond cake, fortified with marzipan (almond paste) and slivered almonds, finished with a pirouette of plum jam makes this a dreamy tea cake for after the ballet.

Oatmeal streusel topping makes a nice change from the usual walnut variations.

This is a  lofty spice cake, perfect for Thanksgiving, Halloween coffee klatch or anytime at all in fall. The cake is fine-grained, delicate but moist -this is not a heavy cake, and gently spiced. It features a penuche-style sweet pecan brown sugar glaze. Alternatively, I offer a vanilla scented cream cheese glaze for more glaze/cake contrast. And sometimes.....I don't do glaze or icing but instead, opt for a spicy, streusel topping, like the one used in sour cream coffee cakes, and apply that before baking.  This is an amazing cake. Our testers bring their baking to work, volunteer venues, to schools, and groups they are involved with- This particular cake drew raves from anyone who had but a tiny crumb!

A unique way to present homey, sweet , spicy quick bread. You can also use this batter to make a few dozen muffins which freeze well. A touch of apricot jam makes this especially mellow and moist.

Shortcake by any other name, in any guise. This is so good; no wonder some 2500 people have downloaded this favourite BB recipe. Berries and a coating of Swiss chocolate on a buttery scone, aka rich, buttery shortcake base. This recipe is the bomb which explains why it is downloaded constantly. It has shades of country fair crossed with Black Forest Cake - Nothing but nothing is as fresh, decadent, and easy or crowd-pleasing as this cake.

You know those delightful chocolate oranges by Terry's? A whole chocolate orange splits into milk chocolate, orange-scented wedges that are just wonderul (and a traditional holiday gift). The Terry's orange is always a welcome sweet treat but really divine, if you coarsely chop one up and add it to this tender, buttery cake. You can marbleize this cake or leave it as a vanilla-orange batter, with the Terry's Orange pieces, flecked throughout the cake. This cuts into thick, moist slices of cake - not as heavy as most pound cakes and richer than a quick bread.
