I love baking year round, but there is just something special about baking in the fall months. Perhaps it’s the cooler temperatures outside that lead me to my kitchen to bake. Especially on the weekends I love to bake up something sweet like this Vegan Cranberry Coffee Cake.

This coffee cake is studded with tart cranberries that burst while the coffee cake bakes. Orange zest adds a pop of citrus.  Cranberry and orange is one of my favorite flavor combinations. Cranberries and oranges were just meant to be paired together.

This basic Vegan coffee cake gets a seasonal twist with fresh cranberries. No one will even be able to detect that it is Vegan. I know that many of you follow a gluten-free diet or know a family member who can’t eat gluten. I have been trying to include more gluten-free options here on the blog. I wanted to test out a gluten-free version of this Cranberry Coffee Cake just incase you wanted to make a GF version. I subbed Bob’s Red Mill’s Gluten Free 1 to 1 flour and the results were delicious. I used the same amount of gluten-free flour for the all purpose flour in the recipe. Are you interested in seeing more gluten-free recipes? Let me know if you have any suggestions!

Hi, I’m wondering if this would work in a 9x13 pan - the amount of flour seems right. That would also decrease the baking time...
