    This makes a great sugar cake without all the work. My boys beg me to make this all the time and since it uses the bread machine I can.

      Great bread machine version of Moravian sugar cake. This is not just any coffee cake. It is a very old tradition of early American Christians who settled in parts of Pennsylvania and North Carolina (primarily Winston-Salem, NC and Bethlehem, PA). The icing is not traditional based on what I know. I've never seen icing on a sugar cake in Winston-Salem, NC (and I've been eating sugar cake for over 30 yrs). I didn't and wouldn't bother with the icing. There's plenty of sweetness without it !!!! This cake is very, very sweet. If you want it slightly less sweet, add a little extra cinnamon (maybe 1/2 teaspoon) and reduce the brown sugar you sprinkle on top. It will still be awesome! Don't be perfectionistic about putting the dough in the is supposed to be the consistency the author says it should be. Try to get it to stick to the sides of the pan a bit as you spread it out and it will stay put better. It doesn't have to be perfectly even b/c you are going to punch holes in it and douse it w/ brown sugar & butter not to worry. Other wonderful Moravian treats are their cookies and their love feast buns.

      Excellent, more convenient recipe! Being from Winston-Salem I didn''t use the icing either; only the traditional brown sugar topping. Met my craving for home! Thank you!!!
