Hungarian Coffee Cake


I don't know why this is called a cake which by right should be bread, but it certainly lives up to its name, great with a cup of hot coffee or tea!  Sweet crunchy crust with nutty almonds and soft cottony bread ....




Pieces of dough are shaped into walnut size, rolled in melted butter/margarine, or olive oil,  placed in a tube tin ( I used a chiffon cake tin), layer by layer, add sprinklings of brown sugar and raisins, leave to prove.
After proving for about 40 mins. ........ they're now double in size, ready to go into the oven.


After baking in the oven for about 45 mins....... yummy, sweet smell of freshly baked bread!


Turned it upside down to cool ........ so excited, first time trying this, can't wait ......'dissected' a portion for the pictures.




Want a bite?  .............. Delicious, especially when it's warm and served with hot coffee/tea ...... Yummy!
