Pistachio Coffee Cake
Step 1: Preheat the oven to 350°F / 175°C. Butter a 9” cake pan, and get out a sheet of parchment paper. Crinkle up the parchment paper, then un-crinkle it and place it in your buttered pan, pressing the parchment up the sides of the pan. This will give you a way to lift the cake out of the pan so that no streusel falls off of it.
Step 2: Brew the espresso and set it aside.
Step 3: In a small mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, and salt. Set aside.
Step 4: In a medium sized mixing bowl with a hand mixer, or in the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, beat together the butter and sugar until the mixture is light and fluffy (3-4 min.)
Step 5: Add in both eggs, the vanilla, and the brewed espresso. Beat the mixture for 1 minute until well combined.
Step 6: Add in half of the flour mixture and gently fold it into the batter just until combined, then mix in the buttermilk, followed by the remaining flour mixture.
Step 7: Pour half of the cake batter into your prepared pan. Top it with ⅓ of the pistachio streusel, then pour the remaining cake batter in, followed by the remaining streusel.
Step 8: Bake for 40-50 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center of the cake comes out clean.
Step 1: In a small bowl, whisk together the powdered sugar with 1 tbsp. of espresso. Add more if desired to get a thinner glaze.
Step 2: Once the cake has cooled to room temperature, top it with the glaze.
Step 3: Serve, and enjoy!
