17-62: Scandinavian Coffee Cake

I had mentioned in a recent entry (16-11: Meringue-Topped Chocolate Pie) that when I make baked goods for sharing with my work colleagues, I try to make them gluten-free if possible. Not only do I have a good friend at work that eats gluten-free, it offers one more option for the other people there who may want to make a gluten-free choice as well. 17-62: Scandinavian Coffee Cake was the first Simply Delicious recipe that I adapted for this particular purpose, and it turned out really well.

I like using mixes for gluten-free because I find the blends make a better and more comparable substitute than the single-source (e.g., rice or potato) flours. Regular (active dry) yeast swapped in for cake yeast, for reasons I’ve discussed before.

Still looks (and tasted) delicious on the inside. Took most of this to work (had to slice it to fit it into the container I wanted to take it to work in) and it was a big hit. I’m just glad I was able to find the pictures.
