Tuscan-Style Coffeecake

"This recipe is from The King Arthur Flour Company. I ordered the European-style artisan flour and it was on the back of the package. Very yummy. I am making it for the second time and, trust me, small slices will be very satisfying."

I am very interested in seeing your ratings and reading your feedback. <br />Experimenting with new recipes is one of my favorite pasttimes. I follow an almost vegetarian diet. I eat fish but really not much meat anymore. <br />I am in my mid-50s and lead a very active lifestyle: horseback riding, running, and strength training. I feel terrific and I give lots of credit to healthy eating. <br />This community is an inspiration to me! It is the first place I will go for online recipes because the feedback is so helpful. I search it for new recipes almost every day. <br />My recipes will be mostly the lower fat, moderate sugar, and vegetarian style of cooking. I'd say there a bit unusual in some aspects :) <br />I hope you like my postings.
