Walnut Orange Coffee Cake
Total TimePrep: 25 min. Bake: 25 min.
I just made this and I love all the flavors. My partner not so much. Matter of taste but my taste is better. :-)
I made this for the volunteers of a fund drive at a local public radio station in Philly (XPN). Both staff and volunteers had this, and it went quick! People from all over the station were asking for the recipe! Gotta give credit where credit is, due, Janice! I had less than 2 cups coconut on hand, which I think was enough. I also added more cinnamon and some Jamaican Allspice to the cake for some savory. Also, a dash of ground black pepper to counter the sweet in the topping. More or less (more for me) orange peel to taste. Thanks!
Friends and family favorite, I cut back on the walnut topping, use 3/4 cup instead of 1 1/2. Added 1tsp cinnamon to the cake batter.
This is my all time favorite coffee cake. It needs to bake a little longer than the recipe says, but just keep checking it. If you don't have fresh zest, use orange oil or extract. It is so moist. My book club sampled it this morning and gave it a total thumbs up.
this is so good. , really every time I make it everyone wants the recipe,and it smells so good cooking, I can't wait to have some.. I have made many times, and will make it many more. Thanks so sharing...
