Coffee cake that really is! I've added the lightened ingredients to make it diabetic friendly. This is a delicious, moist and light textured loaf.

Wow, I have never baked the coffee into the cake, this is wonderful. A subtle coffee flavor and crunchy nuts. I topped mine with glazed pecans and next time I'd sprinkle a little sugar on top as well, before baking. It took quite a while to cook...about 75 minutes. It makes a huge, beautiful loaf. Thanks for sharing Annacia.
