Almond Ring Coffee Cakes
Don't be tempted by the saccharine boxed version at the supermarket. You can make a much better yeasted coffee cake at home-one with buttery, tender cake and a rich nut filling.
Why This Recipe Works
Why buy inferior boxed versions when you can make a better coffee cake at home—one with buttery layers of dough, a sweet almond filling, and a smooth glaze of white frosting? To achieve our ultimate recipe, we mixed almond paste with cream cheese for an intense, nutty filling that didn’t leak out of the dough when baked. We also used honey in place of sugar to sweeten our dough and keep it moist. It also lent our Almond Ring Coffee Cake recipe a slight caramel flavor.
