Today is the first day of Autumn, and to celebrate I am baking this Grain Free Pumpkin Spice Coffee Cake! Enjoy this cake after a beautiful afternoon of raking leaves with someone you love! Or, sit outside on a cool sweatshirt morning with a piece of this cake and a warm cup of coffee! It is pure heaven!!!
When you hear coffee cake, don’t just think of breakfast. This is a great snack cake. I have drizzled the top while it is still warm with a glaze that soaks in and makes the cake super moist! So grab your Bundt pan!
Grain Free Pumpkin Spice Coffee Cake
Preheat your oven to 350º degrees. Now, lets get our ingredients out.
2 Cups of Canned Pumpkin (I use this brand)
1/4 Cup of Honey
1/4 Cup of Coconut Oil
1 1/2 Cups of Superfine Almond Flour (I like this brand)
2 Tablespoons of Coconut Flour (I use this brand)
1 Teaspoon of Ground Cinnamon
1/2 Teaspoon of Allspice
1/4 Teaspoon of Nutmeg
1/4 Teaspoon of Ground Ginger
1/4 Teaspoon of Sea Salt
1 Teaspoon of Baking Soda
1 Teaspoon of Apple Cider Vinegar
1/3 Cup of Coarsely Chopped Raw Pecans
2 Tablespoons of Coconut Oil (melted)
2 Teaspoons of Honey
1/8 Teaspoon of Vanilla Extract
a pinch of sea salt
Directions: Grease a Bundt pan with organic shortening or coconut oil and set it aside. In a large bowl with a hand held mixer, blend the pumpkin, eggs, honey, and coconut oil for two minutes. In a separate bowl, whisk together the almond flour, coconut flour, spices, baking soda and salt. Add the dry ingredients to the wet, and mix with your hand held mixer until thoroughly incorporated. Add the teaspoon of apple cider vinegar and blend again for 30 seconds.
Spoon the batter into the Bundt pan and smooth the top. Sprinkle the top with your coarsely chopped pecans. Place in the preheated oven for 40 minutes to bake. The top should spring back slightly when ready. Remove the pan from the oven, and cool on a wire rack for 5 minutes. While it is cooling, prepare the glaze above.
After five minutes, turn the Bundt pan over with a wire rack on top of it to catch the cake. When it is out of the pan it will be upside down. Turn the cake right side up by using another wire rack sandwiching the cake between the two, or carefully use your hands to turn the cake right side up with the pecans on top. Drizzle the glaze onto the cake and cool.
Happy Autumn! Although it’s still hotter than average for September, there are signs of Fall outside. The pumpkins are ripening for one, and before you know it, it will be time for cozy sweatshirts and jeans, and leaf raking!
