Coffee Cake with Nuts and Chocolate Glaze

This Coffee Cake with Nuts and Chocolate Glaze is crumbly,  with a layer of mixed nuts in the middle and a glaze of chocolate on top. The making of this coffee cake is quick, the baking takes a little longer, about 1 1/4 hours and the result is there. Great as a dessert, with or without ice cream or just a treat with your midday coffee or tea.

Years ago , when I was young, my mother always called this cake an ‘American Coffee Cake’; I have no idea why. The recipe changed a little over the years, different mixture of nuts and the addition of the chocolate glaze. It is a funny recipe actually, at least if you want to use a reasonable sized bundt pan, it almost feel as if you don’t have enough batter, because you need to do you best to cover the sugar-nut mixture. But in the end the cake batter covers everything nicely and comes out exactly right, every time again;  a Coffee Cake with Nuts and Chocolate Glaze – a cake with a nice dark center of nuts, sugar and cinnamon.

To make the cake look a little fancier, I made a simple chocolate glaze and drizzled it over the top, allowing it to travel down the cake.

This size cake is enough for a small town, unless you are a sweet tooth. For me, I am glad at freezes well; I cut it up in manageable pieces that I freeze. So, unless you have a big family or lot’s of nice neighbors, you may want to make this, cut what you want to enjoy right now and keep the rest in the freezer.
