Crumb Coffee Cake {gluten free}

Sharing is caring!

When I think of coffee cake, I think of cinnamon and streusel. This crumb coffee cake has it all, and it’s gluten free! What makes this cake so easy is that you use Gluten Free Muffin mix for the “cake batter!” King Arthur Gluten Free Muffin Mix is literally the absolute best muffin mix I’ve ever had (even better than my favorite gluten-containing ones when I could eat gluten). There’s something special about this muffin mix, so I thought it would make a great cake base for a crumb coffee cake, and I was right!

My hubby and bonus kids eat this stuff like it’s going out of style, and I couldn’t be happier about it! It has all of the right flavors and textures, and to be honest, I don’t think the kids know it’s gluten free…they just know it’s delicious!

So let’s talk about how to make this delectable snack cake…

Ingredients:

  • King Arthur Gluten Free Muffin Mix (found at your local grocery store or Whole Foods)
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/3 cup canola oil
  • 1 cup milk of your choice (I use unsweetened almond milk)

For the filling:

  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup butter, melted (1/2 stick)
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon

For the crumb topping:

  • 1/2 cup gluten free flour (any kind will do)
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup cold butter, cut into small cubes

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees

In a large mixing bowl, add muffin mix, eggs, oil, and milk, and stir to combine

Pour half of the batter into an 8×8 or 9×9 greased baking dish

Make the filling by mixing 1/2 cup brown sugar 1/4 tsp cinnamon with 1/4 cup melted butter

Spread the filling over the top of the batter in the baking dish

Top with remaining half of batter

Make the crumb topping by adding flour, brown sugar, and cold butter cubes to a small mixing bowl

Squeeze the butter with your fingertips. The warmth from your fingers will soften the butter to allow it to combine with the flour and brown sugar. Continue squeezing and mixing the topping until it looks crumbly

Add the topping to the baking dish on top of the batter

Bake at 350 degrees for 32-38 minutes

Batter will seem wiggly when it’s done, so you’ll cover the dish with foil and leave it on the counter for an hour to set

After an hour, the cake will be set and you can dig in!
