Maple Nut Coffee Cake Recipe with De La Tierre Maple Tequila

Maple Tequila…and a cake?  What?

2014-08-18 09.44.49De La Tierre Canadian Maple Tequila.  You might not think that maple and tequila go together.  After all, it’s a strange mix of Canada and Mexico, right?  Well, as it happens, they do go together delightfully.  Read my review of this unlikely pairing here.  This product goes by different names depending upon which country you’re in (labeling laws) but De La Tierre is technically a liqueur.  It is a 100% agave reposado base made with real maple, not that imitation stuff, so don’t expect an overwhelming blast of maple.  The maple is gentle and very subtle.  Because I enjoyed this liqueur, I decided to use it in the Tequila Aficionado Test Kitchen.

2014-08-18 08.53.16Legal note: I should mention here that the brand owner was kind enough to supply the tequila, but I’ve supplied all of the other ingredients. 

My first go-round with this maple tequila was in Pumpkin Pie.  That was a raging success and we haven’t made pumpkin pie without it since.

Today, being quite nuts…er…having walnuts on hand, I decided it was time for a coffee cake.  I’ve made desserts, main courses and several side dishes with tequila, but this was my first shot at a breakfast item.  The tricky part was making it sugar free (I have reactive hypoglycemia).

Following is the recipe as I prepared it, without sugar.  I’ll include the options for a sugared version in parenthesis.
