Coffee Cake. No, Coffee Loaf

Alrighty! Here we go. I am going to attempt to make a gluten free, vegan coffee cake for Christmas morning.

Now, let’s start off with 2 cups of Bob’s Red Mill gluten free flour because 2 cups sound about right in most recipes. And I’ve made a mess. Surprise, surprise.

Typical. I guess I will add baking powder? Baking soda? Both? Okay! Ironically, I’m watching the Netflix show, “Nailed It”. So, we will see if this coffee cake, gets nailed.

Meanwhile, my husband is getting all scrappy and making fun of the show and me, while eating a sandwich. With real bread. Jerk. He is a chef and a darn good one. But really? You have to eat in front of me?

Anyway, sugar, cinnamon, oil and I guess I won’t use vanilla. I don’t have any.

My husband is totally mouthing off. “Omg I’m going to vomit!”

I thought at first he was talking to me, but it was the gal on Netflix who was crying because her recipe didn’t turn out.

“I’m throwing up my sandwich!”

[The drama saga continues]

And this is why wine is made.

A bit of organic olive oil and sprinkle the mid section and top with cinnamon and sugar.

Well…it looks good but it smells a little too much olive oily. Hope it turns out! 350 in the oven is a standard time and I guess the time should be about 40 minutes or so. I’ll keep a close eye on this baby.

Tick tock.

Hurry up and wait.

I think I spilled flour on the floor because I pretty much lost it and did this mini little 1990s break dance.

I’m seriously impatient and snuck a peeked. It’s rising! It’s rising! That’s a good sign!!!

Time for a snack and a glass of wine! OMG I’m so exciting and nervous at the same time!!! I hope it turns out. Do you think it will turn out? My husband is still poking fun at the people on the show. I hope he likes my coffee cake!

He will eat this coffee cake and he will like it.

Drum roll please……

Omg, omg, omg!!! I swear to howdy, this is the moment you all have been waiting for! Okay, maybe just me! Let’s taste this!

Not bad….a little chewy….not too cinnamon-y. My hubby actually approves so WINNER WINNER! Woot, woot!!!
