Cherry Almond Coffee Cake Gluten Free
Hi. It’s Lois at Recipe Idea Shop, telling you about a scrumptious Cherry Almond Coffee Cake (Gluten Free) that I made Sunday morning. I wanted to bring a snack to Quaker Meeting and decided to modify my Snickerdoodle Coffee Cake recipe to jazz it up a bit. And the result was stupendous.
The combination of sweetness, almond flavoring, and tart cherries was so good. I could sit down and eat the whole cake. Luckily, others at Meeting helped me. They ate more than half. So I only have a few more pieces to go until I eat it all up.
It’s pretty simple to make. The only trick with gluten free cakes and breads is that they need eggs (or something) to bind them together, and the batter needs to be whipped on high speed for a couple of minutes to whip some air into it and lighten it up a bit. When I want to make a cake with a hearty topping like this one, I bake the cake for a little while—in this case, 10 minutes—before adding the topping. Otherwise the topping will sink to the bottom and it won’t be as pretty. Of course, it will still taste super good.
Trust me, you’re gonna wanna eat this cake.
