Tips For The Preparation
The baking time can vary depending on the stove. Always do a stick test, then you know when the pecan coffee cake is ready. Instead of water, you can dilute the maple syrup with rum. You can also use different nuts for a divergent flavour.
General Information Of The Recipe
The pecan coffee cake tastes best fresh. You’ll get a perfect combination if you eat it while drinking a cup of hot coffee. As a variation, you can also add 1 tablespoon of cocoa. Cocoa and nuts go wonderfully together.
Frequently Asked Questions
What to do if the pecan coffee cake cannot be removed from the mould?
You can line the mould with breadcrumbs after greasing it, so the cake comes out of the mould more easily. Or you don’t have a silicone baking pan.
What can I do if my dough won’t rise?
Separate the egg into yolks and whites. Beat the egg whites very stiffly and lift them loosely under the dough at the end. This gives the dough volume and lightness.
What to do if my dough is still soggy inside?
Every oven bakes differently. Try reducing the temperature a bit, but increase the baking time to 60 minutes. Then leave to stand in the switched-off oven for about 10 minutes. Cover with baking paper if necessary.
