Pineapple Coffee Cake- GF and "regular" ~ edited and *corrected*!!


ere's one of our favorite breakfast recipes!  I'm going to give you both the original and the gluten-free version.  Trust me, you won't even know it is GF!

Pineapple Coffee Cake
yield: 1 9"x13" pan

1 tsp. baking soda
1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
3/4 tsp. salt
1 tsp. cinnamon
3 c. brown rice flour (I accidentally omitted this when I first posted it~ so sorry!)
1 tsp. guar gum (only if baking GF)

Combine all of the above dry ingredients and mix before adding the following liquid ingredients:

1/2 c. oil (I like to use olive oil)
1 c. honey
3 eggs (fresh brown ones are the best!)
1 tsp. vanilla
1 20 oz. can crushed pineapple

*optional: for an especially yummy treat, stir in 1-2c. frozen blueberries!

Add the liquid ingredients, mixing until combined.  Pour into a 9"x13" sprayed pan.  Then prepare the topping..


3 c. freshly ground pastry flour (or for GF, use brown rice flour)
1/2c. sucanat (or you could use brown sugar)
1/4 c. butter, softened
1/4 c. flour
3/4 c. rolled oats (for the GF version, be sure your rolled oats are certified GF)

Combine the topping ingredients, then sprinkle on top of the batter in the pan.

Bake at 350 for 35 min or until knife inserted in the middle comes out clean.

Hope you enjoy this...

Have a blessed Lord's Day, friends!



  1. You always take the most beautiful pictures Susan. It makes me want to run over to your home and sit with you and eat a pice of your coffee cake. Now that would be fun!!! I know that with all your precious children, I would enjoy myself so!

    Love the aprons. Cute cute cute!!! Love the long one.
    Blessings in the Lord! Have a wonderful day in worship.

  2. Linda, I wish you *could* come by! Actually, you don't really live that far away! If you are ever over in KC, please let me know~ it would be so fun to really meet in person!

    Hope you have a blessed Lord's Day, friend!


  3. Can't wait to try this one!! It looks yummy! Thanks! Hope your worship time went well today. We got snowed in with almost six inches, but were still able to have a sweet worship time.
    Blessings to you!

  4. Hi there, Susan! I can't believe how much snow we got (almost 12"!), or how fast it is disappearing... almost totally gone now! Yay for spring! Have a wonderful week, my friend!

    We had a delightful worship time as well... here at home. Our big van does terrible in snow, so we had church together at home this past Sunday~ which is a sweet, sweet time together for us. *love* it.


  5. Thank you for the recipe...hope to try it soon. It is so rare to find a GF recipe that is good! IMO.
    Beautiful album, Susan.

  6. Kathy~ Thanks! Hope you enjoy the coffee cake... too bad you don't live closer so we could have you guys over and share it in person! That would be *fun*! Have a great week!


  7. Susan!! I am in the middle of making this dish times 2 and don't understand something.

    Does the 3 cups brown rice flour go in the topping or the cake, as the cake appears to have no flour?

    Also in the topping it calls for rice flour and then a 1/4 cup flour?? What kind. I am waiting to proceed, I pray you check this! LOL
