Gluten-Free Cinnamon Streusel Coffee Cake Recipe

Gluten-Free Cinnamon Streusel Coffee Cake

Serves: 4-6



  • 1 cup almond milk (or plant-based alternative of choice)
  • 1 tbs apple cider vinegar
  • 1/2 cup vegan sour cream
  • 1/2 cup avocado oil
  • 2 cups gluten free flour
  • 2/3 cup monk fruit sweetener
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp Himalayan Salt
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract

Cinnamon Streusel Layer:

  • 1/3 cup salted, vegan butter, room temperature 
  • 2/3 cup gluten free flour
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1 tbs ground cinnamon
  • 1 tsp Himalayan Salt



  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.  In a large bowl combine all wet cake ingredients.  Combine all dry cake ingredients into a separate bowl then when ready, sift into the wet mixture and stir until evenly incorporated.
  2. Transfer the batter into a lined 8”x8” baking pan then prepare the cinnamon streusel layer by combining all ingredients in a medium mixing bowl with a fork until it just comes together and is crumbly and resembles sand.  Transfer on top of the batter layer.
  3. Place the pan into the oven and bake for 35-45 minutes or until it passes the toothpick test.
  4. When the cake is ready and cooled, prepare the drizzle by combining the ingredients together in a small bowl.  Allow to sit for a couple of minutes to help the sugar dissolve.  Give another stir then evenly drizzle on top of the cake.
  5. Afterwards, slice into the cake and enjoy with your favorite Laird Coffee!
