Coffee cake is a traditional European cake that was served alongside a cup of coffee. It was traditionally a single layer cake with a sweet, cinnamon-infused flavor and streusel topping made from flour, butter, and sugar.
So, while it’s called “coffee cake” it actually doesn’t contain any coffee!
This gluten-free variation uses coconut flour as the base. Coconut flour absorbs lots of moisture so that’s why there are so many eggs in the recipe. It’s not a typo! 🙂
It makes a great addition to a weekend breakfast or brunch. I hope you enjoy it as much as we did!
