Nutty Crumb topping: After finishing the coffee cake, I have been wondered about the makeover of the cake and finally decided to makeover with nutty crumb topping, which is crunchy when baked and its grainy texture contracts nicely with the coffee cake. Ingredients:

  • Walnuts / Pecans – 15 nos
  • Powdered sugar – 3 tsp
  • Ground cinnamon – ¾ tsp
  • All purpose flour / Maida – 1 tbsp
  • Instant coffee powder – ½ tsp
  • Butter – 1 tsp


  • Place the nuts on a baking sheet and bake for 8 to 10 mins or until fragrant or lightly browned.
  • Let cool and then coarsely chop them.
  • In a small bowl, stir together the nuts, sugar, ground cinnamon, butter and flour. Set aside for 15 mins.
  • Now sprinkle the nuts on the top of the cake. Finally sprinkle instant coffee powder on the top of the nuts.
