3. Directions:

3.1 Preheat

Preheat the oven to 350°F.

3.2 Prep

Spray a 9-inch square baking dish liberally with nonstick cooking spray. Set aside.

Place the butter, sugar, and vanilla in a large mixing bowl. Use a mixer to cream ingredients together on medium-high speed until smooth, 1-2 minutes. Add the eggs, sour cream, and buttermilk, and continue beating until mixture is light and fluffy, about 1 minute.

Sift the gluten-free flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt into the bowl. Mix on low speed, scraping down sides of bowl with rubber spatula as needed, until a smooth, thick batter forms.

Pour the batter into the prepared baking dish with a rubber spatula, and smooth into an even layer.

Place the gluten-free flour, brown sugar, granulated sugar, cinnamon, and salt in a large mixing bowl. Stir with a fork to combine. Drizzle melted butter into the bowl and mix with a fork until the mixture forms large crumbs. Sprinkle crumble evenly over the top of the cake batter.

3.3 Oven

Bake the coffee cake on middle rack of oven until topping is golden and toothpick inserted in center comes out clean, 35-45 minutes.

3.4 Check

Check to see that coffee cake is done. Remove from oven or add time as needed.

3.5 Serve

Allow cake to cool in the pan for 15-20 minutes before serving. To store, cover tightly with aluminum foil or store in an airtight container and keep at room temperature for 1-2 days, refrigerate for up to 1 week, or freeze for up to 2-3 months.
