Sophie Says: Gluten & Dairy Free Coffee Cake

tHE BEST coffee cake you’ll make all year

SOPHIE SAYS- I wanted a simple little cake that filled my sweet, nutty tooth while staying as clean as possible. I remembered this coffee cake recipe I made years ago and decided to play around. This moist, gluten and dairy free coffee cake with the perfect crumbly nutty topping did the trick. We highly RECOMMEND pairing this with your new favorite coffee shops blend over at Factory Fuel.

Grease your baking pan. Pour your cake batter in (it will fill almost to the top). Spread your crumb topping over the top and Bake for about 60-70 minutes.

Check with a toothpick, when it comes out clean it is done.
