Gluten Free Overnight Coffee Cake

READY IN: 1hr 5mins
Recipe by LARavenscroft

Found this in a GF newsletter that I receive every month. As the coffee cake bakes, the topping sinks down into the cake and makes a streusel like filling. Time does not include the placing the coffee cake in the refrigerator overnight before baking.

I am very new to gluten free baking, but was still impressed with this recipe. It does have a little different of a texture/crumb than a nonGF coffee cake, but not in a bad way. I had to leave the flax seed out since I did not have any, and tweeked this a little to our tastes by adding 1/2 c. less of the sugars and less of the spices. Definitely a worthy substitute, I bet it would be great with blueberries in it too.
