Brown Sugar-Macadamia Nut Coffee Cake

Buttery-rich macadamia nuts have a pleasurable melt-in-your-mouth consistency. Native to Australia, macadamia trees have been planted in Hawaii, where they flourish. Because the shells are very hard, the nuts are usually sold shelled in vacuum-packed jars or in bulk. Shelled nuts go rancid quickly and therefore should be used immediately or stored in the refrigerator. The delicious oil extracted from macadamias is extremely low in saturated fats, free of cholesterol and high in omega-3 fatty acids, making it healthier than olive oil. The oil should also be refrigerated.

Decent coffee cake
August 27, 2010
I was very excited about trying this recipe from the Muffins cookbook by WS. It is a good coffee cake, but a little less flavorful than I anticipated. Still a good pairing with my black coffee! I did not have macadamia oil on hand, and I substituted canola as the recipe stated. Next time I will try to have that in the pantry when I am ready to bake this.

Great Coffee Cake
April 30, 2010
What a terrific cake. Easy to prepare, this cake is redolent of butter and macadamia nuts and is a great introduction to the use of macadamia oil. An unusually rich, moist and almost succulent cake, this one does not disappoint. The ginger and cinnamon in the topping blend harmoniously with the macadamia flavor. Try this one. It is a keeper.
