Before going Gluten Free I used to make these mile high crazy moist cakes. When I made this dietary switch I discovered most cake was kind of dry and crumbly. It had to be eaten right away- by the second day it was hardly edible. Its been my goal for awhile to get my cakes back to what they once were. This Coffee cake was an exciting success- I forced myself to save some to see how it aged- by day three is was still moist and WONDERFUL. Throw delicious concord grapes into the mix and you have a winning combination.
To make the streusel Use myRecipe.
- Prep Cake Pan (use an 8 by 8 inch pan or something close to that size)- Spray with non-stick spray and sprinkle with Millet flour. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
- In a Large bowl combine all the dry ingredients: the Flours, xanthan, sugar, egg replacer, baking soda and powder.
- In a separate bowl using a hand mixer combined the melted , Applesauce, Sour Cream and vanilla extract.
- Pour the Wet ingredients into the dry and Continue to mix using the hand mixer until it comes together. Set aside.
- Wash Grapes. One by one- remove the skins and reserve. Place the Center of the grapes (containing the seeds) into a food processor. Process the grapes and push through a fine mesh strainer- reserve the liquids and dispose of the seeds.
- In a Sauce Pan Combine the grape pulp/juice, the Skins , sugar and cornstarch. Stirring constantly bring to a gentle boil until the mixture thickens.
- In your cake pan- Place the Batter- then pour on top the Concord grape mixture.
- Finally- top with Streusel.
- Bake for 1 hour and 25 minutes.
If you want multiple layers of grape filling you can alternate adding the batter and the grapes. This batter is on the thick side- and you may find this a tricky job- do not worry if it looks a little messy- once baked it will look fantastic!
