So my beloved coffee cakes have been relegated to a “special treat” for my growing family. Not because they’re inferior in anyway, but because there are more economical ways to feed 6 people. 😉
This Applesauce Crumb Cake makes a good, healthy treat on those mornings when oatmeal or fried eggs need a little boost. It’s not hard to make, and the kids gobble it up. Though there isn’t much they don’t gobble up!
It’s a pretty versatile little cake as well: I used a mix of brown rice flour and oat flour, but other options like sorghum would taste great as well. I also used eggs and butter, but flax egg substitute and coconut oil work, too!
- 2 c. gluten-free flour (I used half brown rice and half oat flour)
- 1/2 c. starch (I used tapioca, but potato starch or arrowroot would work as well)
- 1 1/2 t. baking powder (learn how to make your own easy peasy!)
- 1 t. baking soda
- 1 t. salt
- 1/4 t. nutmeg
- 1 t. guar gum
- 2 flax eggs or farm-fresh eggs
- 2 c. unsweetened applesauce
- 1/2 c. coconut oil or butter
- 1/3 c. honey
- 3/4 c. gluten-free oats
- 3 T. coconut oil or butter
- 1 T. cinnamon
- 1 t. honey
- Preheat oven to 350 and grease a 9x13 inch baking dish.
- In large bowl, whisk together dry ingredients.
- In separate bowl gel flax eggs, then add remaining liquid ingredients. Pour into dry ingredients and mix well.
- Pour batter into prepared pan.
- In small bowl, sprinkle oats with cinnamon, then cut in the coconut oil or butter.
- Stir in honey and sprinkle mixture over batter.
- Bake for 25 minutes, or until toothpick comes out clean.
