new york style-gluten free crumb cake

 












 















 



























i haven't yet met a gluten free challenge i was afraid to tackle!  last week my sister made a new york style crumb cake--it was divine!  i'm not really sure why this is called 'new york style crumb cake' because i am pretty sure i have eaten similar coffee cakes in other american cities!  after taking a look at the recipe, i realized the ingredients were almost identical to both my streusel coffee cake recipe from when i was a little girl and the gluten free pantry 'favorite coffee' cake recipe i have used so many times in the past.

with a little tweaking for gluten free i came up with the following...sweet success! you can easily half this recipe to make an 8" square or 8" round coffee cake OR 48 mini muffins, 12 regular size muffins.

this time i used a 9x13 pyrex pan and i also made mini muffins using the same recipe!

    Love your blog, i don't do a lot of baked goods and am just amazed at how far we have all come with GF baking! Thanks for sharing.

    Does the recipe call for 1 1/2 cups of white AND brown sugar or 1 1/2 cups of white and brown sugar TOTAL? Thanks!
