"Family loved this apple coffee cake. Will keep in my folder for future.@ Mousemom2000 - go to search on TOH and type in crumb coffee cake. You will get about a dozen different recipes for it without using apples."

MY REVIEW

"How can I omit the apples? I want it to be more of a crumb cake without apples. Would I have to add in something to make up for the moisture of the apples?"

"Hi, New to this type of baking, but do you not have to add Xanthan gum to the recipe or is it in the flour already?"

"Amazing fall flavor. Cake came together easily and tasted great."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Sep. 30, 2013

"My husband who is doing a gluten free diet LOVED this coffee cake as a breakfast/mid morn snack. I used Silvana's awesome flour blend recipe from her book, Cooking for Isaiah, which I highly recommend for those with gluten or dairy allergies or sensitivities. All purpose gluten free flour does not contain xanthan gum and must be added to recipes for stability."
