Scottish Coffee Cake

EM23 | Oct 19, 2011 07:15 PM

There is a great German bakery nearby that makes a "Scottish Coffee Cake" that is not at all like what would be considered coffee cake in the U.S. It is very rich and has nuts, coconut, raisins and phyllo all stuck together in some kind of buttery, sugary mass. I googled both "scottish coffee cake" and the ingredients but have not found anything that nails it on the head. Coconut and phyllo are not exactly common ingredients in Scottish baking either so that makes it all the more puzzling. This blogger describes it and posts photos of it here http://nycfoodguy.com/2009/01/26/long...
Is anyone familiar with this, have a recipe or know anything about the origin of this treat?
