Torta Rustica di Noci e Caffe: Rustic Coffee and Walnut Cake

Whilst a large portion of The Italian Baker by Carol Field is devoted to bread making and using yeast, there is some delicious baking gems to be found too. Here I’ve shared a beautiful Rustic Coffee and Walnut Cake with you all on Sharing The Food We Love. Its a beautiful cake and simple to make.

Coffee and Walnut Cake6Some flavours are just meant to be together and one of them in my opinion is walnuts and coffee.  There is something quite magical about the combination and in particular when added to cake generally results in a winner.  Having baked this cake I can honestly say that opinion has not changed yet.
