There's usually a high demand for pastry around my house due to a certain sweet tooth that rules the roost. While this is usually fixed by a quick batch of chocolate chip cookies, I occasionally am summoned to make something that can replace the most that most important, first meal of the day. Donuts and muffins are usually too much for me first thing in the morning, but this coffee cake full of nuts and whole wheat flour ALMOST convinces me that I am getting some nutrition with my breakfast. Regardless, it is so moist and nutty that I not only found my self snacking on it more than I had planned, but found a clean cake dome within 36 hours.
If you are expecting company or are looking to indulge someone (like yourself) with a non-protein and fiber rich breakfast someday, make this coffee cake. It'll rock your morning socks off.
