  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 tablespoon melted butter
  • 1 box gluten free yellow cake mix
  • 1 cup plain yogurt or sour cream
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 4 eggs


  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F and spray a 9 x 13 baking pan with cooking spray.

  2. In a small bowl, combine brown sugar, cinnamon, and melted butter using a fork to mix well.

  3. Pour dry cake mix into a large mixer bowl, and add sour cream, water, and vegetable oil. Mix on low for 1 minute until combined, scraping down sides and bottom. With mixer on low, add eggs one at a time. Then increase speed to medium and mix for 2 minutes.

  4. Spoon half of the batter into the baking pan and spread to the corners. Sprinkle with half of the brown sugar mixer. Spoon remaining batter on top and sprinkle with remaining topping mixture.

  5. Bake for about 50 minutes until cake tests done by inserting a toothpick in the center. The toothpick should come out free of any wet crumbs. Cool on a cooling rack before cutting into squares to serve.

How large a box for the cake mix? Live-G-Free is 15 oz and only makes a 1-layer cake Pillsbury is 17 oz and makes a 2-layer cake. Thanks!

Hello! We used a 15 oz box of cake mix, but I'm sure the 17 oz box would also work! The 17 oz box would give you more cake, so the cinnamon and sugar swirl wouldn't be as prominent. Let us know how it turns out!

I loooove coffee cake - it's a guilty pleasure of mine - but this looks pretty healthy, so I don't think I'd even feel guilty about it!

I agree that this is a great idea for a breakfast. There is nothing wrong with eating cake for breakfast, I learnt that when I lived in Germany and they ate cake for breakfast every day. I always look for breakfast ideas where I don't have to go to any trouble at breakfast time as I'm up at 530 and out the house by 6 so no time to eat, yet I'm starving. So thanks for this novel idea.

Can this be made in a Bundt pan or spring foam pan. I'm going to make this thursday.

Hello! Yes, either of those will work, but the baking time may change depending on the size and shape of your pan. As long as you monitor your coffee cake closely, you should be good to go. I hope you enjoy this recipe. It tastes amazing!

Perfectly light and fluffy! I'd definitely make this for my family for breakfast :)

Delicious, especially when it's right out of the oven! Sometimes gluten-free recipes taste bland to me but there was a lot of cinnamon that made this coffee cake tasty.

So good you don't even need coffee to eat it.

You can't go wrong with a decent coffee cake recipe. This was tasty, especially when served warm.

This coffee cake was absolutely perfect. I would make this again in a heartbeat.
