Coffee Cake (Gluten-Free and Dairy-Free)

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.

If this is meant to be gluten and dairy free why are you using butter and not vegetable margarine.

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.

So I've been gluten free for 6 months. I gave it up the day of my endoscopy and never looked back. I was a fairly silent Celiac. My blood work was always normal (never anemic, malnourished), I didn't have all the horrible symptoms that others do. I think I caught it early and that those things were definitely coming. Since going gluten-free I notice that my belly is better. I still have days where it's not great, but in the last month I've noticed that it's consistently pretty good. I don't hardly ever get stomach aches. I've lost 16 lbs and I'm never bloated. Those things are good. But, aside from that, I don't feel much different than I did before. I'm still tired a lot. But I have two kids under 4 and I run a non-profit. I have horrible anxiety and that's only increased since finding out about my Celiac (it's health anxiety and it freaked me out big time that I have an AI disorder). I feel like my complexion looks the same (never had an issue with that). I just read stories on here that talk about how the brain fog lifted quickly, or how people don't feel tired anymore, etc. I'm still a zombie sometimes. Has anyone else has this experience? Maybe my body was doing such a good job compensating for my Celiac that I wasn't really very symptomatic to begin with - and that the tiredness I feel isn't due to gluten. Oh, FYI, I had a full thyroid panel done in December and it was all normal.

Your daughter could have non celiac gluten sensitivity. That would correspond to negative celiac tests coupled with positive reaction to the gluten free diet. Whilst there are similarities to celiac presentation it appears that neuro symptoms are more common in ncgs patients. That seems to be the case for me anyway! The condition is as yet poorly understood but there is progress being made, check out a topic I just started on the pre diagnosis thread with some info and links. The remarks by umberto Volta in particular are just about the best summation I've yet seen on where the research is at. I will post a link later.

The gi may be able to see some signs of celiac visually but the chances are you will have to wait a couple of weeks for the biopsies before there's any confirmation. The damage to the villi is too small to detect with naked eye I think. as long as your eating some gluten each day you will have done all you can for a diagnosis. Not long now so go ahead and treat yourself to a nice cheesecake, fish and chips etc.

check out CoQ10, not related to celiac (as far as I know) but for balance issues.

remind your hubby, "if mama ain't happy, ain't nobody gonna be happy."
