Good morning! How was your weekend? It certainly looked like a wild one weather wise, hopefully you were not affected by it. We had beautiful, sunny weather but I can already feel a little of Fall in the air. Or maybe that it just my imagination as Fall is 40 plus days away.
I made an easy and delicious Cinnamon Walnut coffeecake this weekend that would be perfect to eat now and to keep in your file for the upcoming holidays. I also think it would be a great cake to make and give as gifts.
Cinnamon Walnut Coffeecake
Recipe from An Italian in My Kitchen
3/4 cup chopped walnuts
11/2 teaspoons baking powder
11/2 teaspoons baking soda
3/4 cup softened butter
11/2 cups Greek yogurt
In a small bowl whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt, set aside. In the bowl of a stand mixer cream together the butter and sugar on medium speed until the mixture is light and fluffy. The add the dry ingredients alternately with the Greek yogurt and vanilla to the creamed mixture, mix with a wooden spoon until smooth. Spread half the batter into the prepared pan, then spoon 3/4 of the topping over the batter. Top with remaining batter, smooth out and then top with the remaining topping.
Bake cake for 50-60 minutes. After 50 minutes if the cake is not done but is getting too brown, top with foil until done. Test for doneness with a toothpick. Cool and enjoy.
