Christmas Edition: Almond & Coconut Coffee Cake

I made this dessert a few weeks ago when I had my family over for dinner. This cake is deliciously moist and is on the heavier side and make the perfect dessert after dinner or simply a coffee cake for afternoon tea. This cake was a hit with my family and I would love to share it with you 😍

I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as I have. As always, please let me know what you think of this recipe. If you like what you see on this blog, you can follow me on my blog, Facebook or Instagram for some food porn.
