Lemon Coffee Cake is a delicious and simple cake that works on so many different levels. It is sweet, tangy and delicious and the perfect snack to serve mid-day or late in the afternoon, but pretty enough to work with your bridge club on Tuesday night. However you serve it up, lemon is popular with almost everyone, and a slice of cake makes all things seem sweeter.

This particular recipe is gluten free. Don’t run away, now. Gluten free cooking has gotten much better in the past decade or so as more and more people have recognized their sensitivity to wheat, or people who just want to expand their cooking horizons. If there are no sensitivities in your family or among your friends, try this recipe out, anyway. See if your friends or family even notice the difference between this cake and any other cake you might serve.

Xantham gum is a common ingredient used in baking and some cooking that helps stick things together. One of the issues in gluten free baking is that it can be hard to get things to stick without gluten helping out. So this ingredient does the work for you. Don’t let the name intimidate you. It is a safe ingredient that you can use and eat without concern. This recipe also uses gluten free flour. The brand name suggested is widely available. Gluten free flours are usually combinations that might include garbanzo beans, rices and various starches, depending on the blend. Find one or two that you like and stick with it. They can offer great alternatives to wheat based foods. One advantage to not using wheat when you bake is how much flavor can come through when cooked with other kinds of flours. It can be surprising to realize just how much of what you taste in baking is actually the flour, and not the flavor. Baking wheat free emphasizes this interesting phenomenon.
