This coffee cake is amazing! We’re talking…you wouldn’t know it’s a gluten free coffee cake kind of good here. Seriously.
In my 8 months of eating GF, I have found three kinds of gluten free goodies.
1. The good for gluten free baked good.
2. The dry, grainy, not worth the calories gluten free baked good.
3. And the GREAT baked good, that, oh by the way, happens to be sans gluten.
A month or so ago I picked up a GF Betty Crocker yellow cake mix and decided to doctor it up into a coffee cake. One of my favorite coffee cakes begin with a yellow cake mix, so I had a feeling I could make it work. I added vanilla pudding mix and sour cream to keep it moist, because, the downfall to most GF treats is the dry texture. The pudding mix really did the trick – on day 3 it was still just as moist as when it was freshly baked.
Money saving tip: Always check discount stores for gluten free products. I found this cake mix at Big Lots for just $2 (normally $5). I was able to make this whole coffee cake for about $3.50…that’s just under $.30 a serving! Considering the price of gluten free food – that’s a deal and a half!
