db: Yeasted Meringue Coffee Cake

The delicious cake

Walnut roll which was much prettier looking.

This is the roll with pecans. It was really big and didn’t want to come together on the ends.

Adding chocolate chips and nuts.

The March 2011 Daring Baker’s Challenge was hosted by Ria of Ria’s Collection and Jamie of Life’s a Feast. Ria and Jamie challenged The Daring Bakers to bake a yeasted Meringue Coffee Cake.

And it was AWESOME! I will definitely be using this recipe again in the near future. The dough was very easy to work with and rolled out very well. I did have to take a few breaks while rolling the dough to let the gluten relax, but other than that it was a breeze. The meringue was also easy to make and work with.

I ended up filling my dough with semi sweet chocolate chips and walnuts in one and pecans in another. The walnut filling was definitely the favorite which is why we kept it and sent the pecan cake to the railroad office.

The final taste was a dough that was good but not sweet, with a filling that was moist and had just the right amount of sweet. Delicious

After rolling the dough and spreading the meringue and sprinkling on cinnamon sugar.
