This tender, moist Gluten Free Coffee Cake has a tasty blackberry swirl and is loaded with a crunchy, crispy crumble topping! It’s sure to be a hit!
PIN Gluten Free Vegan Coffee Cake
If you really want to get me out of bed in the mornings PRONTO, just promise me carbs.
And, if we’re being specific here, they should be tender, moist carbs in the form of gluten free COFFEE CAKE, which MUST have a VRY VRY heavy LAYER of buttery crumbles on top and a THICK layer of sticky-sweet fruit spread in the middle.
Serious about that crumb topping. The ratio of topping to cake better be some along the lines of 3:1.
We do not mess around. This is not a drill.
You know, I never understood why they called it coffee cake when I was growing up and didn’t drink coffee. It didn’t have coffee in it, and it kind of just tastes like a muffin but, you know, shaped like a cake.
Then, adult Taylor had a slice of gluten free coffee cake W-I-T-H a mug of steamy-cozy-morning coffee and HOLD THE PHONE. Coffee cake IS probably the most perfect little side of carby comfort to accompany a cup of joe.
So, yea, I WILL get out of bed for it. Whether it’s Saturday or even on a MONDAY. I’m there.
It has this pillowy-soft crumb that is kept extra tender with a tasty trifecta of creamy, dairy free vanilla yogurt (to keep it a dairy free coffee cake!) applesauce and this hint of coconut oil that is, UGH, just SO DANG GOOD.
Then there’s the crispy, crunchy, coconut-oily crumbs that fall all over your lap as your yogurt coffee cake-loving-mouth munches, but you do not even care one bit because nothing can distract you from the current coffee cake situation that you currently find yourself in.
Besides, maybe you’ll find some crumbs stuck to your shirt later. SNACKS.
Can we press pause on the crumbs for a second though? Because we have some blackberry BUSINESS to banter about.
All cozied up between the tender layer of pillowy soft coffee cake and the heavy-handed sprinkling of crispy oats lies the REAL star of the gluten free vegan coffee cake show: Crofter’s Organic Blackberry Premium Spread!
I’ve been using Crofter’s fruit spread for a LONG time because they are all just so dang good. I always have apricot, strawberry, raspberry and blackberry on hand <– Put blackberry or raspberry with cashew butter on an English muffin. You’re welcome.
They really are a “fruit spread for all” because there are SO many flavors (even unexpected ones like pomegranate and black currant!) and they also offer different varieties. Today’s Blackberry spread if part of the “premium” line!
Their premium spread has less sugar, more flavorful fruits and is made with organic ingredients and Fair-Trade cane sugar! Tastes good. Good 4 U.
Totally my JAM (get it?)
You could also try their “just fruit” line which has no refined sugar! They use low color and low acidity white grapes to press into concentrated juice with no flavor, and then add that fruit based sweetness instead of sugar! They’re a touch tarter but still super delicious and have just as awesome flavors!
Can I use other flavors of fruit spread?
It’s going down like this:
- Sticky-sweet, fruity spread with punchy blackberries
- Spicy swirls of cinnamon
- Tender wholesome, crunchy oats
- Cup of steaming, hot, cozy coffee
Rise and shine sunshine, your morning just got a little brighter.
