Recipe by Gluten Free Baking By Rachelle

This Gluten-Free Vanilla Streusel Coffee Cake is one of my youngest daughters favorites, and she has been after me for quite some time to make her this cake. I usually make this in a 9×13 pan, however this time I thought I would try it in a bunt pan and I was sure pleasantly surprised just how beautiful it had turned out, sometimes I even decorate the top with a powdered sugar drizzle, sooooo pretty. This cake is perfectly good on it’s own or with that morning coffee, you could also serve it with afternoon tea. So whenever you decide to serve this cake it will be more than delicious and satisfying.
