Can you believe it’s time for another dessert challenge? We either this month went by super fast. This month the challenge includes walnuts and honey. So I created a Honey and Walnut Coffee Cake.
I love these dessert challenges from Cheryl because she forces us to come up with an original dessert recipe.To read more about the challenge schedule or to participate yourself, click on the button below:
I decided for this one to make it more like a combination between a coffee cake and a scone.
It’s really quite simple to put together. It truly tastes like a cross between a scone and a coffee cake. Perfect for your cup of tea or coffee.
The hardest part for me was deciding what to call it.
What would you call something that’s a cross between a scone and a coffee cake? Do people even call it Coffee cake anymore? I figured I would go with coffee cake on this one. Either way, it went fast at our house.
Honey and Walnut Coffee Cake
1 cup butter, softened
1 cup sugar
2 cups flour
2/3 cup walnuts, chopped
2 tablespoons honey
Cream together butter, sugar and egg. Combine flour gradually. Add walnuts. Place half of the dough into a greased cake pan.
Drizzle honey over surface of dough. Cover with remaining dough.
Bake in 350° oven for 40-45 minutes. Cool completely before cutting.
This is it before it goes into the oven….
This is it after…Let it cool completely before cutting.
It is really good. Nest time I make it, I am going to use a square pan and make bars out of it.
