Jill of Jill’s Blog chose Cardamom Crumb Cake, on page 38, for this week's TWD bake-along. However, I made mine with Nutmeg instead and threw in a handful of chopped apples for good measure. It was a nice change from cinnamon crumb cake which is a much loved classic around here. My favorite part of this cake was the orange. It brought the deliciousness to a new, zesty level. I might even add more zest next time! The unusual combination of spice, coffee, walnuts, vanilla and orange zest is unexpectedly amazing. The cake texture is smooth as well as moist to perfectly contrast the walnut-crunched topping. Yum!
