(Almost) Gluten Free Cinnamon Coffeecake

cinnamon cake_21On a snowy day, something warm with cinnamon sounds tasty. So yesterday as it snowed I made this tasty sounding recipe, with a few tweaks, to enjoy with some coffee. This started out as a gluten free recipe using 2.5 c almond flour instead of the 2 c of the custom flour blend I used.

(Almost) Gluten Free Cinnamon Coffeecake

2 c flourcinnamon cake_16
¼ tsp sea salt
½ tsp baking soda
½ c walnuts, coarsely chopped
½ c raisins
¼ c applesauce
¼ c unsalted butter, melted
2 large egg
⅓ c milk

2 Tbsp ground cinnamon
2 Tbsp unsalted butter, melted
1 Tbsp brown sugar
2 Tbsp ground or sliced almonds

Preheat oven to 350°. Grease an 8-inch square baking dish with cooking spray.

Combine the flour, salt, baking soda, walnuts and raisins in a large bowl. In a medium bowl, whisk together the applesauce, butter, milk and eggs. Stir the wet ingredients into the almond flour mixture until thoroughly cinnamon cake_17combined. Spread the batter in the baking dish.

Mix cinnamon, butter, brown sugar and almonds in a bowl. Sprinkle the topping over the cake batter.

Bake for 25 to 35 minutes, until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Let the cake cook 1 hour, then serve.

Although I don’t personally have a gluten allergy, I typed up a lot of recipes for times when I am baking for someone who does. This is one of the cookbooks I found at the library: The Gluten-Free Almond Flour Cookbook: Breakfasts, Entrees, and More by Elana Amsterdam. This is a great resource for people who have gluten allergies and still want more moist baked goods.
