Can you really have too much of a good thing when it comes to the combination of coffee and cake? Here, we’ve created a lighter but still moist and rich Bundt cake, added a ribbon of hazelnut-coffee streusel inside and a drizzle of coffee glaze on top. To say it tastes great with a good cup of coffee is an understatement. Recipe by Joyce Hendley for EatingWell.

Great for coffee lovers

My husband is a coffee snob and I thought he might like this one and he did! Cake is very moist and the filling has a good coffee flavor. I made the frosting too loose and it didn't stick like the picture but it added nice flavor as well.
I used whole wheat flower instead of white whole wheat. I used sliced almonds in the filling but I think I'll stick with chopped nuts next time for the crunch. I'll make this again!

Easy to make, moist and nice coffee flavor
Wonderful Recipe!

I made this for my mothers birthday since she doesnt like traditional birthday cake (the frosted kind) and also doesnt care for chocolaty things. She likes coffee flavored treats and this cake was just right! Most of the other coffee flavored cakes had a lot chocolate in it. This cake has a great moist texture and rich coffee flavor.

Great coffee flavor, elegant

I was really excited to try this and even ran out to buy a bundt pan specifically for this. I was really disappointed in the result. While it baked beautifully and the cake texture was moist and soft, it was bland. The coffee streusel was really bitter. I used a name brand espresso powder and followed the measurements exactly. I prefer really good quality coffee, and this cake tasted like cheapo gas station coffee. My husband and his co-worker tried it and were also unimpressed. I won't make this again. I love the idea of it, though, and would like to find a coffee flavored recipe that does not rely on harsh espresso powder for the bulk of its flavor.

moist cake, baked perfectly, lovely presentation
avril says "awesome-ness"

I had the kids help with this. One chopping hazelnuts (we had to get them from local produce store), another making streusel, another helping with the cake batter. The recipe directions were perfect and the cake was perfect and our family of five ate half of it for dessert tonight with ice cream, moaning and groaning over how good it was. It is very coffee-cake-ish so we plan to eat more for breakfast in the morning.
