Coffee Cake Recipe

Coffee Cake Recipe


Who doesn’t love a warm, yummy piece of coffee cake especially on a cold winter day.  Since the hubs is gluten free and dairy free finding a coffee cake recipe that is tasty and is gf and df  was hard!!  So, I took a few recipes and put them together and poof……delicious tasting gf and df coffee cake.  If you are not gf or df you can use regular flour and milk.

But before we get to the recipe, let’s chat a bit about what to wear to family Christmas parties.  I don’t know how fancy your families get but ours are pretty casual.  We chat, eat, have a gingerbread decorating contest (seriously, some of my fam is so good at decorating and some of us need to work on that skill:) )  play games….etc.  I found some cute tops at that I had to share with you


 I got this super cute cold shoulder top.  I paired it with skinny jeans and ankle boots for my in-laws Christmas party.  

This cute sweater I got in purple and I am going to wear it with black jeggings and ankle boots for a Christmas party.  Both are super comfy like a sweatshirt but more grown up looking   Check them out if you are looking for something for your Christmas or New Year’s party.

*Note-I have also made this using oat flour and it is delicious.  Very dense and oatty (is that a word?) flavored.
