Almond Brickle Coffee Cake

READY IN: 50mins
Recipe by Kaytie Did

This is a family favourite coffee cake, I am always asked to bring it for Chrismas breakfast or family brunches. I also make it every year for a charity Bake Sale, it is easy, sells quickly and has been requested by people that have previously purchased it. The apricot and toffee bits combine to make a moist coffee cake that looks as good as it tastes.

Amazed that someone has not tried this cake because it is wonderful. No changes needed.
