Bubka is pure heaven to me - because it strikes the right note of sweet and bready. It is also relatively easy to make - not as complicated as true Danish with its rolled in blocks of butter but certainly richer and moister than a sweet dough. I have a few bubkas in my first cookbook, A Treasury of Jewish Holiday Baking (Doubleday, l998) where it sits like a queen of the realm of Jewish baking. Here it takes on another role - the diva of the yeasted, sweet pastries. I often use my bread machine to make the dough - although I have to give the mixing a hand at first by using a rubber spatula, just to get the rich dough properly going.

The best sour cream coffeecake recipe you'll ever find.
Be good to your cranberries.

Double sour cream (but you can lite) in the cake and the icing makes this doubly luscious.This is a big, bold, chocolate cake that cuts in hunks and wows them every time. It is flavor packed but the glossy frosting is a final touch.The sour cream tenderizes the cake crumb but make the icing soft and shiny and not too sweet. A great chocolate sheet cake that is outstanding as a layer cake too. You can white whole-wheat flour in this recipe. Do make sure you stir, and then measure the flour for this baby.

This is one of those glossy, rich fudge frostings. It is as good on a Boston Cream Pie cake, or in a layer cake or on either chocolate or vanilla cupcakes.

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.

 

I love this golden slicing cake with a generous rainbow of sprinkles throughout and on top. The sprinkles soften in the cake make colourful tasty swirls.


Meet You in St. Louis? This is heaven, pure and simple - at least, if you are keen on chewy/pastry coffeecakes with a sludge of butter and sugar.  This is one of my own personal favorite recipes because nothing beats buttery pastry, with a sweet chewy filling. It's a yeasty, sweet coffecake/bread base, topped with a caramelized, gooey delight. There is nothing else quite like it in unique taste, texture and appearance and it always brings raves. Apparently every pastry shop, bakery, and supermarket in St. Louis offers this cake but outside St. Louis, I would wager it is pretty unique. In a pinch, use frozen bread dough to make this recipe quick and easier.

A seasoned crepe pan, or non-stick frypan is a must. This cake is really just a buttery stack of crepes, sandwiched together with layers of crème legere ( a classic French pastry concoction of custard and whipped cream which is the best of both worlds). Perfect fare for Mardi Gras, Valentine’s Day or anytime you want a fussy (but easy cake).
