Coffee Cake


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.  Grease a 8x4” loaf pan well or line with parchment paper.  I use my slightly larger loaf pan to bake this Grain-Free for more even baking.   

Mix dry ingredients well then add wet ingredients and mix until smooth cake batter is formed.  Let the batter rest for 5 minutes then mix for a few more seconds.  Spread  ½ the batter in the loaf pan and smooth the top.  Sprinkle ½ of the cinnamon/sugar topping, then cover with remaining cake batter.  Sprinkle the remaining cinnamon topping and use a knife to drag and swirl the cinnamon/sugar through the cake.  Smooth the top then press chopped walnuts or pecans on the top.   

Bake for about 30-40 minutes (35-45 minutes Grain-Free) until a toothpick comes out clean and edges are golden.  Remove from the oven and cool on a rack.  Gently invert the cake to release and slice.  Serve with a scoop of high protein yogurt for a balanced breakfast.
