Coffee Crunch Cake Recipe

I have taken liberties here with the famous Coffee Crunch Cake Recipe from Blum’s Bakery in San Francisco. Ernest Weil, the original baker of this delicious cake, developed the recipe in the 1940s. I have turned this classic from a lemon layer cake filled with coffee cream into a chiffon roll, and altered the coffee crunch topping with the addition of finely ground coffee beans. The cake is a cinch to make, so long as you pay attention while you are making the topping, which requires a candy thermometer.
