Why this is the BEST Gluten Free Coffee Cake Recipe 

When it’s time to rise and shine each day, starting with a cup of hot coffee is an absolute MUST! But don’t let that coffee get lonely- I love a satisfying slice of almond flour pumpkin bread or some cinnamon banana bread to gobble up with my coffee! Today’s gluten free cinnamon coffee cake brings the warmth of cinnamon together with the perfect amount of sweetness to create the most delicious treat! It is easy to bake and even easier to eat, so go ahead and bake yourself a loaf and I guarantee you’ll be glad you did! 

Is there Coffee in Coffee Cake?

This is SUCH a good and important question, in my opinion. Coffee cake is a tasty treat that is meant to accompany a satisfying cup of coffee. It is often spiced with cinnamon and sugar, making it the perfect partner for your coffee, but does not contain coffee itself!

How to make Gluten Free Coffee Cake

Make the Topping

Turn on your oven and let it preheat fully. Line the bottom of a cake pan with parchment paper and spray the sides with cooking spray. In a bowl, combine all the topping ingredients other than the butter. Once combined, cut in the butter and set the mixture in the fridge for now. 

Make the Cake

Whisk the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt in a medium bowl. In a separate bowl, thoroughly mix the remaining cake ingredients. Whisk the dry ingredients into the wet until everything is well combined. 

Make the Filling

Mix the filling ingredients together in a small bowl. 

Assemble

Pour half of the cake batter into your prepared pan and then sprinkle the filling mixture on top evenly. Now, cover up the filling with the rest of the cake batter and top it off with the crumbly topping mixture. Pop the cake in the oven to bake until a toothpick in the center comes out clean. 

Serve

Let the cake cool COMPLETELY in the pan, then slice and serve. DEVOUR!

Recipe Variations

If you LOVE the sounds of this cake but want to mix things up, go right ahead! For a fruity take on coffee cake, you might want to consider swirling some jam in the cake batter. For some extra indulgence, add in some chocolate chips or butterscotch chips. To make it a vegan gluten free coffee cake, you could use dairy free butter, coconut yogurt instead of sour cream and try it with a flax egg instead of a real egg. Let me know how it turns out if you give this a try!

How to store Coffee Cake

This coffee cake recipe will keep well if stored in an airtight container. In the fridge, it will last up to a week and in the freezer it should last up to 3 months. To freeze it, I recommend slicing it into portion sizes and freezing them that way for easier thawing.
