Growing up, we barely had ‘snacks’. My mother referred to snack food as empty calories. My father on the other hand, loved a snack now and then. I was inspired this month to create a gluten free blueberry coffee cake that would remind me of the joy of a drakes coffee cake snack.
My father loved a drakes coffee cake, and often he would sneak a box into the grocery cart when he took the whole clan to the A&P in Pearl River for saturday morning shopping. We would cheer when he got to the checkout line without my mother finding it. We knew we would be getting one too, because my father shared everything.
So, in honor of that probably not so wholesome treat, I worked hard to find a way to recreate that childhood wonder. We are hoping you enjoy our gluten free translation as much as we do. We do not get an hour out of a coffee cake here in the test kitchen. They smell that streusel topping and they know what is coming out of the ovens.
