The secret to a great, moist gluten-free coffee cake is in following a few simple tips that you can apply to any ‘gluten’ coffee cake with terrific results.

A great coffee cake recipe is wonderful to have in your repertoire. Coffee cakes are easy to make and perfect to serve for breakfast, as a snack or for dessert.

Tips for a perfect gluten-free coffee cake:

  1. Use no more than 2 cups of gluten-free flour.
  2. We use the Gluten Free Pantry’s Country French Bread Mix as a straight substitution for flour with great results.
  3. Use 1 teaspoon baking powder AND 1/2 teaspoon baking soda to give your cake lift.
  4. Use 1/2 cup vegetable oil instead of butter.
  5. Use 3 large eggs
  6. Use 1 cup gf yogurt, sour cream or buttermilk

For Crumb Topping:

  1. Use no more than 2 Tablespoons gf flour in the mixture
  2. Sprinkle the topping over the top of the cake after 40 minutes of baking, then continue to bake for the remainder of specified time.
