Homemade Gluten Free Coffee Cake

When you hear coffee cake, the first image that probably enters your mind is Drakes coffee cakes. Well, there are a variety of ways to make this cake and this is not the typical one though. You will use actual coffee or Endangered Species Coffee Candy in this recipe. To make it gluten free white or brown rice flour is usually the best bet for baking.

COFFEE

The first step of course, is to brew the coffee. It can be any flavor that you desire: from vanilla, mocha, french vanilla, espresso, to anything else. If you rather just use the candy all you have to do is melt it down in the microwave or in a glass bowl (within a large pot of course) over the stove top. When, one or the other is done it can be added into your flour mix.

FLOURS

As it was stated early, brown or white rice flour would be the preferable choice to use besides wheat flour because it is naturally sticky and will hold together better much better than any other gluten free flour. If you’d rather use wheat, of course, you are welcome, too. The gluten will keep the cake together.

FIRST BITE

When, you take your first bite into this delectable, sweet treat you will be glad you tried this version. Since you already have your coffee, grad a tall glass of milk, chocolate milk, or even a cup of tea and dig right on in.
