Maple Walnut Coffee Cake

by Milisa on February 11, 2011

Maple Walnut Coffee Cake

A good coffee cake always grabs my attention and this one has walnuts and my new found love, REAL maple syrup.  I found this recipe at  the Cooking.com recipe section and I had to try it.  The best thing about coffee cake is that it’ makes it okay to eat cake for breakfast.  That’s why they call it coffee cake, because it goes so well with your morning coffee.  Don’t tell me it isn’t so!  And who doesn’t love a Bundt cake?  This would be great for toting to parties, potlucks or sharing with your family and friends.  You get just a hint of the maple flavor and the crunch of walnuts inside the moist cake, I am telling you it’s total cake bliss.

I consider myself somewhat of a coffee cake connoisseur – no really – and this looks absolutely fabulous. Will have to add it to the list. My mom makes a Walnut Crumble Coffee Cake that is my all time favorite…but he really only makes it on holidays. I could use an “everyday” cake ;)
