Gluten-free Vanilla Streusel Coffee Cake

Gluten-free Vanilla Streusel Coffee Cake

Recipe by Gluten Free Baking By Rachelle (Rachelle Himmelman)

This Gluten-free Vanilla Streusel Coffee Cake is one of my youngest daughters favorites and she has
 been after me for quite some time to make her this cake. I usually make this in a 9x13 pan, however this time I thought I would try it in a bunt pan and I was sure pleasantly surprised just how beautiful it had turned out, sometimes I even decorate the top with a powdered sugar drizzle, sooooo pretty. This cake is perfectly good on it's own or with that morning coffee, you could also serve it with afternoon tea. So whenever you decide to serve this cake it will be more than delicious and satisfying.

  1. I'm so new at this and live in a small town and they only Gluten free flour I found was Red Mill All purpose baking flour, can I use this in this recipe?
    Thank you

    1. you could, but be warned-their AP gluten free flour has bean powder in it. Anything sweet you make may have a very distinct bean aftertaste. If you have an asian market anywhere near, try that for a lot of your GF flours. Walmart generally has a latin foods section with masa harina (corn flour), and Harina de Arroz (superfine white rice flour) very cheap and you can get corn starch, and sometimes arrowroot starch also. Your best bet is to order online. Amazon has everything you would ever need, and almost everything is available free shipping. I try to avoid already prepared GF flours, because they are so much pricier than making your own all purpose or using individual flours. It's much cheaper if you have to prepare for a large family (we have 6). Hope that helps--it's a crazy GF world out there!

    2. I completely agree ^^^ I'm not a fan of the Bobs Red Mill, but it will work, you can go to and order from her, she has a wonderful flour blend that I use all the time.

  2. Yes, I love sweets blog. This one look so good and yummy. I really want to eat this one. You also tell about how to make this one. Thanks for sharing this good article. Now it's time to avail car service boynton beach fl for more information.
