PALEO PUMPKIN COFFEE CAKE

Posted on 63 views

this Paleo Pumpkin Coffee Cake is the perfect fall dessert. A tender cake topped with an irresistible crumb topping. Gluten free, dairy free, and naturally sweetened.

Coffee cake is one of my favorite things to make. It’s a cake that is so good it doesn’t need frosting. It’s a little fancier than bread or muffins which means it’s perfect to serve to guests or give as a gift. This is a healthy version, made completely gluten and dairy free. It is so delicious though.My dad was visiting last week and he isn’t paleo. He happily ate a large piece and didn’t know it was paleo until I told him- it’s that good.

this is just like a classic coffeecake. Moist, flavorful cake, with a delicious crumb topping! Isn’t the crumb topping always the best part.It is simple to make. The cake is mixed in one bowl, by hand, and the topping comes together in just a couple minutes. It can be in the oven in no time. Once it’s baked and cooled, you will want to keep it in the fridge after the first day. I find paleo baked goods go bad pretty fast if left out. It is also good cold though, so no worries.
