One of the better coffee cakes you will find.

We've had this before and were happy to see it again. It comes from the Scialo Brothers Bakery on Federal Hill in Providence.  It is a classic, Old World style bakery where they still tie the boxes with string and have a line of bundt cakes. This is one of them - the Walnut Streusel.

We've had it before from Scialo Brothers!
Quite a tempting top!
It is a basic yellow coffee cake topped with about a 1.5 inch thick layer of walnuts in a streusel form bound together with butter and caramelized sugar. The best thing is that they don't skimp on the walnuts. There are a lot of them and it makes all the difference.
Generous with the walnuts to say the least!
The texture of the cake is soft and moist and you have this great crunchy top that beats any kind of cream frosting that could be on such a cake. This is a great cake so if you find yourself near the bakery grab one or you can order it online..of course.  It is a good size so you can feed a crowd if yo have to.
Soft moist cake with the walnut streusel top makes for good eating!
