This gluten-free crumb coffee cake is tender, soft, and perfectly sweet. There’s no bad time to eat this cake. Enjoy it in the morning with your morning cappuccino, or tea, or whatever your favorite morning beverage may be. Eat it after lunch as a sweet note after a light meal. Or save it for after dinner, to reward yourself for getting through an entire day.
If you’re not a fan of coconut or almonds, you could switch them with something else, or leave them out entirely for a more traditional gluten-free coffee cake.
Gluten-Free Coffee Cake Recipe
This easy Gluten-Free Coffee Cake Recipe is simple enough, that anyone can make it. Both my girls have now made this recipe, and continue to love it. Topped with almonds and coconut, and incredibly simple with only eleven ingredients, there’s really not a good excuse to not make this crumb cake.
What other gluten-free flours can I use in this gluten-free coffee cake?
I’ve used Bobs Red Mill 1-to-1 gluten free flour mix, Ryze Gluten-Free Flour, and GF Jules in this recipe. All work really well, and yield slightly different textures – but the same great flavors. I find that a blend works best. I don’t recommend using an almond flour blend in this gluten-free coffee cake recipe.
Can I use regular butter in this recipe?
Yes. I used to use regular butter in this Gluten-Free Coffee Cake recipe before we found out my oldest can’t do dairy. I haven’t tried replacing the dairy-free butter with oil, and I’m not sure if it would work. If you try this gluten-free coffee cake recipe with oil please let me know how it turns out.
Ingredients in Gluten-Free Coffee Cake
- brown sugar
- dairy-free butter (or regular butter)
- gluten-free baking powder
