This is our 18th bake at The Home Bakers where all of us in the group are baking every single recipes from the book, Coffee Cake By Lou Seibert Pappas and now we're almost half way there. Just like Kit mentioned, i guess not many of us have actually baked so many recipes out from the same book. I'm actually now one bake behind, currently my fellow friends at THB already doing their 19th bake..ok, i'm catching up.
The original recipe supposed to be a marionbery hazelnut cake but we can choose to use any berries or combination of berries either with hazelnut or almond meal. I have chosen strawberry and hazelnut and baked them in cupcake form . I had halved the recipe and it comes to about 5-6 muffin sizes cakes. Some changes i made to the original recipe were i did not add reduced the sugar to 80gm, skipped the nuts and did not make the sugar crust topping. Am still glad with the outcome of the cake.
