Coffee Cake

Gluten Free Coffee Cake is a classic recipe that can be served for breakfast with your coffee, as a snack, or even as a dessert! As a kid I was always reluctant to try coffee cake because I thought it would taste like coffee, and of course, as a child I hated the taste of coffee! It wasn’t until I was a teenager that I had another opportunity to try some coffee cake and I figured one bite would be fine – just to taste it. And boy was I surprised when it did not taste like coffee at all! In fact, this cake gets in name because it is supposed to be served with coffee, not taste like it! Just imagine all that coffee I could have eaten as a child, oh well – I will catch up now!
