Coffee Cake with Walnut Crumble

 If you are tired of butter and cream cakes, you might want to try this recipe – i.e. Coffee Walnut Crumble Cake as it tastes so well especially if you go with coffee. By looking at the recipe, I would think the cake turned out to be dense and heavy, it's surprisingly that it looks dense but it's very light and soft. I was told that it's the sour cream which makes the cake so moist. The nutty crumb (which makes of butter, flour, brown sugar and walnut) that sprinkles on top of the cake has created a lovely contrasting effect of soft, moist, crispy and nutty. The cinnamon is an excellent enhancer to cake flavor making this such a perfect breakfast or afternoon treat.
