Delicious and easy to make. I used 1/4 c. avocado oil and 1/4 c. butter for the shortening. Instead of the milk, I substituted 1 c. Trader Joe's applesauce. Thank you, Joy for sharing this recipe.

I think you need to follow this recipe as written. I used non-gluten flour and coconut sugar. The recipe did not lend itself to the substitutions. We had a small slice and threw the rest out. It was just okay, but not worth the calories. If you make it, follow the recipe as written.

Wonderful recipe. I followed it and it is perfect. Light and fluffy and not too sugary. Yum!

I made this coffee cake with a couple of changes. We don't care for coconut, so I made a crumb topping with flour, sugar, and butter. I baked it all in a 9 by 13 glass pan at 325 for 50 minutes, instead of using two round pans. Both changes worked great and the coffee cake was a big hit with our Sunday School class!
