Sweet or savory? That was the big debate as we judged our Breakfast Favorites Recipe Contest. When you think of an amazing breakfast, do you think of pancakes, waffles, fruit, syrup, jam, and other sweet confections? Or does your mind jump to eggs, sausage, bacon, cheese, and all things cast iron skillet? Our finalists represented both sides of the breakfast menu.
And the winner is ...
Cherry Coffee Cake, submitted by Marlene K., of Madera, Calif.
This sweet breakfast treat settled the debate. When we read the recipe, and Marlene's story about how her family demanded the dish for Christmas brunch, we thought it might be amazing. Christmas brunch is the Super Bowl of family breakfasts! The result did not let us down. Congratulations, Marlene! Thanks for sharing!
