Douwe Egberts Coffee and Walnut Cake: Afternoon Tea.
Something lovely about the smell of warm coffee being made.
Especially the smell of coffee around the kitchen, cooking.
I can eat coffee cake and coffee chocolates all day but have never drunk any cups of coffee myself!!
When I was pregnant, many moons ago with my 2nd child, I use to crave coffee cake.
I use to visit a sweet little coffee shop in our little town to buy a piece and hide myself away eating it!
I never made myself one as I would have eaten it all to myself as my husband is not a coffee fan.
Today I am sharing this yummy Douwe Egberts Coffee and Walnut Cake.
Fancy trying some?
A nice little slice to hide away with and eat.
