in England coffee and walnut together is a popular flavour combination, these doughnuts are baked rather than fried, they have a coffee glaze too for extra coffee flavour.
I had some shelled walnuts left over from Christmas so this was a great way to use them up.
They are like a coffee and walnut cake in a doughnut form.
