My Granny used to make a coffee and walnut cake. Her recipe dated all the way back to the second world war when real coffee was hard to come by. Instead of coffee, she would use a liquid mix of chicory root and coffee to cut costs. Ever since, she always made the recipe like that and it became one of my Granny and Grandpa’s household cakes.

I never thought I would be able to find chicory root over here in Switzerland and was excited when I found Incarom which is actually a traditional Swiss drink whose original recipe dates back to 1957.

Today, I’m excited to share my twist on Granny’s chicory, coffee & walnut cake! At the time, walnuts were also a luxury and only used for special occasions but it’s the beginning of the Christmas season and I know she would agree with me pushing the boat out!
