    Coffee Cake (Gluten-Free and Dairy-Free)

    Reviewed and edited by a celiac disease expert.

    I am always searching for breakfast recipes good enough to serve to overnight guests and easy enough to make just for my family in a morning rush.  This breakfast cake fits the bill, and also pleases my picky (especially in the morning!) kids.

    I have used some mesquite flour in this recipe because I love the subtle chocolate tones it imparts, and its added nutritional value doesn't hurt either!  However, if you are not a morning person, and are looking for simplicity, just use a full portion of my all purpose flour mixture -- it's delicious that way as well!

    Gluten-Free Coffee Cake

    Gluten-Free Coffee CakeGluten-Free Coffee Cake Ingredients:
    1/2 cup butter or Earth Balance Buttery Sticks (room temperature)
    1/2 cup packed light brown sugar
    2 large eggs
    1/2 cup black coffee
    1 cup mashed ripe bananas (approximately 2 bananas)
    2 tsp. gluten-free vanilla extract
    2 tsp. pumpkin pie spice
    2 cups Jules Gluten Free All Purpose Flour*
    1/4 cup mesquite flour (or Jules Gluten Free All Purpose Flour)
    2 tsp. gluten-free baking powder
    1/4 tsp. baking soda

    *(Jules Gluten Free All Purpose Flour can be made following the recipe for my homemade flour found in my books or on my website in various media links.  It is also available pre-mixed at http://julesglutenfree.com)

    Streusel Topping (double if you really like your Streusel!):
    2 Tbs. softened butter or Earth Balance Buttery Sticks
    2 Tbs. light brown sugar
    1/2 tsp cinnamon

    Directions:

    Preheat oven to 350 F (static) or 325 F (convection). Oil or spray an 8 x 8 baking pan.

    Sift the dry ingredients together and set aside. Mash bananas in a medium-sized bowl, pour coffee over the bananas and set aside. Beat the butter and sugar together in a large bowl until light and fluffy. Add the eggs and vanilla and combine well. Mix in the mashed bananas and coffee, then gradually stir in the dry ingredients, mixing until thoroughly combined.

    Pour batter into the prepared pan and set aside.

    In a small bowl, stir together the topping ingredients. Drizzle over the cake, then cut through the topping with a knife in a criss-cross fashion lengthwise, then cross-ways.

    Bake for approximately 40-45 minutes, or until the edges are lightly crisp and a cake tester inserted in the middle comes out clean.

    Great question about the dairy-free options given. If you'll notice, I reference using 'Earth Balance Buttery Sticks.' This is a great butter substitute, is vegan (thus, dairy-free) and now even comes in a soy-free option as well. Check it out! I use it in all my gluten-free baking with wonderful success.

    Earth Balance is awesome! I have used it for several years with great success. Please give it a try.

    Celiac.com 11/12/2008 - It's not as hard as you might think!  It's easy to start with the big items—a gluten-free turkey, gluten-free stuffing, gluten-free pumpkin pie, and of course, gluten-free gravy.  All are easily achievable by the average home cook, and no one will be able to tell anything is different or unusual—just a lovingly prepared meal full of flavor.
    Order an organic turkey from New Seasons or Whole Foods in plenty of time, or choose a less expensive option such as Norbest, Riverside, or Honeysuckle White (my favorite).  Some commercially produced turkeys contain gluten in the broth used to inject them full of flavorings, salt, and f...

    I've been trying to will the coming of warm springtime weather by baking foods I'll want on my next picnic.  No matter that my kids and I eat them on a tablecloth spread out on the living room floor ... our hearts are in the great outdoors!  Whether you're picnicing indoors or out, these filling snack bars will be a treat everyone will enjoy.  Using a hodgepodge mix of dried fruits I have had on hand, I have made this recipe several times with differing ingredients.  Feel free to substitute with whatever dried fruits and or nuts you have on hand -- the base recipe remains the same -- although I recommend at least using figs in this recipe, as they are hig...

    Celiac.com 09/25/2014 - Every year, life seems to get more hectic.  There is never enough time to get the things done on the ever-growing “to-do” list, let alone find time to relax.  Then you are diagnosed with celiac disease and suddenly realize you can no longer stop at Subway for a hoagie sandwich on your way home.  You get a sinking feeling in the pit of your stomach as you acknowledge that you will have to actually cook most of your own meals at home!
