    Coffee Cake (Gluten-Free)

    Reviewed and edited by a celiac disease expert.

    This recipe comes to us from Betty Doubravsky. My wife entered this in the Dolores County Fair here in Colorado and won three ribbons . - James

    ¼ cup salad oil ( I use olive oil )
    1 beaten egg
    ½ cup milk
    1 ½ cup gluten-free flour* plus 1 ½ teaspoon xanthan gum
    ¾ cup sugar
    2 teaspoon baking powder
    dash of salt

    Combine salad oil, egg, and milk. Sift dry ingredients and add, mixing will. Pour into greased 9x9x2 inch pan. Sprinkle with Spicy Topping* and bake at 375 for about 25 minutes.

    * Spicy Topping:

    Combine ½ cup gluten-free brown sugar, 2 tablespoons gluten-free flour, 2 teaspoon ground gluten-free cinnamon , 2 tablespoon melted butter, ¾ cup broken nuts (your choice ). This is best fresh, however if any of it does make it through the first day, it never makes it through the second.

    Very tasty and fit the craving of a 38-week pregnant woman and her celiac hubby. I woke up Sunday morning really really really wanting brown sugar and cinnamon baked goods...thank you so much for sharing! Now I just need to master the whole "baking at altitude" concept - previously I just did what Duncan Hines told me...now I have to...think for myself! Aack!

    Wow! This is an excellent coffee cake. My husband usually runs when I make gluten-free baked goods, but even he loved this coffee cake! It was fluffy and moist and absolutely yummy!! I will definitely make this again and again.

    I can't wait to try it. I suddenly craved coffee cake, Don't know why (definitely not pregnant!).

    But, keep working on the baked goods--my daughter and I make gluten free breads, cakes and cookies that "normals" gobble up! Vary the flours in your mixes and be sure to use enough flavor--spice, real butter, etc

    I'm probably missing something here, but I can't see 'coffee' anywhere in the ingredients...

    As far as I can remember I've never seen coffee in any coffee cake recipe - usually it's just a breakfast cake that goes well with a hot cup of Joe.

    At the same time that I looked up your recipe, I was looking in a old better homes and gardens cook book and seen the exact same proportions.expect it wasn't gluten free. I didn't see your Gluten-Free flour recipe, so I used rice, tapioca and potato flours, also I used cold processed coffee for most of the liquid. it came out very good. thanks for showing its not that hard to have healthy snacks.

    Coffee Cake doesn't CONTAIN coffee, and it's not supposed to taste like coffee. It's a not-so-sweet cake to be enjoyed WITH coffee.

    Delicious! Thank you for this alternative. My daughter has never liked traditional birthday cake and has always requested coffee cake on her birthday. Now that she's gluten-free, I have a way to make her beloved coffee cake!
