Gluten Free Overnight Coffee Cake

This is my first official gluten free recipe. I have lots of recipes that are gluten free, but this is the first one that I have posted that calls for gluten free flours.

I have been reading a lot about gluten free baking. I have spent a lot of time reading websites. I checked out some cookbooks from the library and I have even bought a few of the gluten free cookbooks.

These have all been great ways to learn more about the science behind baking with gluten free flours. I am using them to learn what flours and products to use where. But I have not had many successes with the actual gluten free recipes that I have tried. They have been good, but not great. Gluten free baking is teaching me that I am more of a food snob then I realized. I am much pickier than I thought I was.

When I make a pancake, I want it to be a really good pancake. I don’t want it to be just an okay pancake. I have tried some okay gluten free things, but I want really good gluten free things. My goal is to feed my family good food that just happens to be gluten free. I have a long way to go in this area, but I am slowly learning.

I am trying to learn as much as possible about the science behind gluten free baking in order to figure out how to adapt regular recipes to make them gluten free. I have had better success adapting regular recipes and family favorites, than I have had making recipes from gluten free cookbooks.

This recipe is one of those that I adapted. I adapted this from my Whole Wheat Overnight Breakfast Cake. It was pretty easy to make gluten free and turned out well. This used to be a family favorite for breakfast, so everyone was thrilled that I came up with a gluten free version. I have made this several times and we really enjoyed it. I hope you do too.

  1. This looks great. I am learning about gluten free baking and what I like least about gluten free baking is all the different flours you have to use….

  2. Francine says:

    Can you give me asuggestion of what I can use for corn flour? Is this corn meal ground to make corn flour?

    • My stores sell corn flour in the gf or health food section. Corn flour is also what is used to make homemade corn tortillas. But since this recipe does not have much in it, I think you could take corn meal and grind it a little finer in a food processor or blender and use that. I hope that helps.

  3. You bake this right from the refrigerator without it coming to room temperature? As in, just out long enough for the oven to preheat?
