    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.

    why you will Love this Recipe

    • Adult Taylor had a slice of gluten-free coffee cake WITH 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.

    • This vegan coffee cake recipe, MAN OH MAN. Both Mr. FFF and my roommate, Emma, ​​declared it one the best things I’ve ever made, and they haven’t said that since the mulled red wine cake of 2018.
    • 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.

    Can I use other flavors of fruit spread?

    Absolutely! It has so many flavors available. I think this coffee cake would also be awesome with apricot or wild blueberry 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

    tips & Tricks To Making a Delicious Coffee Cake

    • Weigh your flour! So, so important if you’re hoping for the same results I had
    • Because there is no eggs, this dish needs to cool COMPLETELY to give it structure, or you won’t be able to get it out of the pan.
    • If you don’t want to use applesauce as your egg substitute, you can use a flax egg — you just have to make one first. To do so, mix together 1 tablespoon of ground flax seeds and 3 tablespoons of water. Let the mixture sit for a few minutes until it becomes thick and gel-like. This will obviously affect the taste and reduce the sweetness.

    FAQ’s

    why is sifting the flour so important?

    Sifting flour aerates it and gets out any lumps or clumps. The finished product will be lighter and boast a more even texture. It also helps to evenly distribute any baking powder or baking soda, which you may have added to the flour before baking.

    can i add more blackberry spread?

    You can experiment by adding more than the 2/3 cup listed, though I like the current spread-to-cake ratio so it still tastes like a coffee cake. But far be it for me to stand in the way of progress. Add away and reset your expectations accordingly.

    do i serve this warm or cold?

    You can serve it at any temperature you like. Traditionally, a morning cake is served cold, as you chase it with hot coffee. But you can also warm this up in the oven and serve it as a dessert if the thought of substituting this for your Corn Flakes for breakfast gives you the shivers.

    How To Store The Coffee Cake

    Once it has cooled, wrap the cake tightly in plastic wrap or place it in an airtight container. This will help to keep the cake fresh and moist. The cake can be stored at room temperature for a few days, in the refrigerator for up to a week, or in the freezer for up to three months. To thaw the cake, simply remove it from the freezer and let it sit at room temperature for a few hours before serving.
