Gluten-Free French Coffee Cake

Gluten-Free French Coffee Cake

Going GF

For some, eating gluten-free has become a fad, but it is a necessity for those who have a sensitivity to gluten. Gluten-free ingredients have come a long way in the past few years and are often available at your local grocery store. This month, one reader submitted her own gluten-free flour mix. We used it in all recipes calling for flour and were pleasantly surprised how it lacked the grit common in many gluten-free bakery items. Give these recipes a try – we think you’ll agree.
