NEEDED: Brunch cake recipe

Have been invited to holiday brunch in a couple of weeks and asked to bring a coffee cake. My "usual" recipes are sour cream pound cake, apricot coconut cake, walnut coffee cake. Looking for something different. The party will be about 30 people, someone else is already planning pecan cinnamon rolls. Want something I can do on Saturday to bring on a Sunday. Needs to serve about 12 people. I am fairly accomplished baker, but want a cake not small cookies. Suggestions? Thanks!

  1. I use this (muffin or loaf) recipe as a cake. Don't vary the ingredients, don't forget the glaze, and it's a winner.

    1. Have you ever made this crumb cake?

      Really good, moist and super easy.

      1. This is one of my favorite cakes. Good for brunch, lunch, dinner or breakfast.

          I haven't made this but just read recipe and I will.

        2. This is a killer breakfast/brunch cake. I feel that it improves with a day or two between making and eating.

              It is the Cream Cheese Raisin Pound Cake.

          2. I love this lemon cornmeal cake for brunch:

            It's hefty enough to be filling, but not too sweet.
