ABC in February

 This month -still baking from the King Arthur Flour site- the Avid Baker's Challenge is a Tuscan coffeecake. I will never understand why these kind of bread are called "Cakes". It's definitely not a cake in any way. It's a bread, a sweet one, cause it's really a bread in my opinion.

Dates and walnuts are really lovely as a filling, I could imagine lots of other divine combinations as well, but I liked this one. For me this recipe was bang on, didn't change anything as far as I can recall. Simple, delicious, fluffy and not too sweet: a winner!

Your "cake" looks wonderful and I agree that this was really bread. So glad it was a hit with you.

Wonderful texture, Lien! Very light and airy. I agree, it's more of a bread. I added orange zest to mine and it reminded me of a Stollen. Yum!

You did a great job, Lien. The bread looks very light and yummy. Gorgeous color, as well. I had reduced the amount of yeast in mine, but will use a little more next time :)

This does indeed look most inviting.
Cake seems rather a misnomer but perhaps enjoying this doesn't need a name.
