From the Culinary SOS archive: 1881 Coffee Cafe's Dutch apple walnut loaf
Over the weekend, Frederik from Bakersfield emailed me with a request for the recipe for 1881 Coffee Cafe's Dutch apple walnut loaf:
"Last year ... you printed a recipe for a apple walnut coffee cake I made several of them and they are delicious, the problem is I can't find my recipe.... is it possible for you to find it?"
The apple walnut loaf, shared by the little cafe in Bridgeport, Calif., was a real favorite of ours when we ran it last year:
"We were smitten with this loaf even before it came out of the oven, the scents of cinnamon and apple perfuming the kitchen as it baked. Cooled, the wonderfully crumbly topping revealed a light and fluffy loaf, almost cake-like in texture. It's only slightly sweet with a gentle tang from buttermilk, and with little chunks of apple and walnut suspended throughout. Paired with a good cup of coffee, it makes a perfect start to the day."
You can find a link to the recipe here. Enjoy, Frederik!
